As we were laying there before going to sleep:
Him: “Did you get me _________ ?”
Me: (—long pause—) “Noooo…” (said in an astounded voice like OMG that would be SUCH a stupid present) (he actually guessed right)
Him: (laughing) “Don’t get annoyed”
Me: “Well, you’re ALWAYS trying to guess!”
Him: “I can guess stuff all I want”
Me: “No. You can’t”
Him: “Fine then, can I shake it?”
Me: “Can I shake MY stuff?”
Him: “YES! Please do!” and starts cracking up.

Very funny & cute.
That sounds like a conversation we would have. You know what they say… “they are all brothers”. Sometimes I really think that’s true.

I figured out a way to combat this horribly annoying behavior in my husband. Read on: One of the hubs’ presents arrived via UPS and I snagged it on my way in the door two days ago. I had a sigh of relief because I thought i had snagged it before he saw it. Well, he was already home!!!! and he had already seen it. So he just left it out on the front porch to taunt me!
THEN when I brought it inside he said “Oh yay! You got me the _____ that I wanted!” So fast forward to today, he saw me carrying a box to the post office on my way out. He asked what it was. I told him “Because you were so naughty and you guessed what I got you, I’m returning it! SO there! That’s what you get!” He pleaded with me and apologized and promised not to guess anymore! I said, ‘too late buddy. you’re done.”
In reality, I was returning something ELSE that I bought him in the wrong size (and have already re-ordered the correct size) !!! HA HA
P.S. he has not tried to guess ANY more of his presents I have put under the tree. 🙂

My Fi has guessed everything that I’ve gotten him. Today I even left him open his one gift (The New Super Mario Brothers) so we could play it. He’s such a sweetie that since we’re suppose to get slammed with snow, he said to keep it here and give me something to do since I’m on holiday break from school.
Boys are really funny about his gifts.

LOL that is so cute! We’re kinda the opposite; whenever FI gets me a surprise gift he can’t take the suspense and just gives it to me as soon as possible! I usually have to convince him to wait until the birthday/anniversary/holiday, it’s so strange trying to convince him to wait to give me presents.
