Because of husband's retail hours (just lovely this time of year) and medical issues going on with my mom, husband and I really haven't had much time lately to see each other, let alone sit down and have a conversation. Yesterday, I spent the day wrapping presents and got them all done but a couple of things he had ordered. One of the customers in the store he works at makes these jester hats. If the material exists for what you want (sports team, theme, etc.), she'll make it. So he ordered 3 hats in Indy Colts material. One for him, one for a friend of ours and one for difficult child. Two are the same and one is slightly different and I wasn't sure who he wanted to give the different one to so I waited to wrap them. So, he got home last night and after difficult child was in bed, I asked husband about the hats. He decided to give one to my dad instead of difficult child. His reasoning? difficult child never takes care of his stuff and it would be a waste of money because the hat would be either destroyed or simply disappear. Not a foriegn concept to me and I agree with the reasoning. My problem? husband is concerned about difficult child destroying a SEVEN DOLLAR HAT but what did he insist on getting difficult child for Christmas? A freaking Nintendo DS. (and two games) Huh??? You don't want him ruining a $7 hat but we spent almost $200 for the game system and two games??? He's lost his flipping mind.
