So what does your DH REALLY know about your CDing addiction?

Just curious if everyone "includes" their DH in their CDing addiction...as in...does he get why you keep getting all these packages in the mail? I don't think my DH truly understands the amount of CDs I've tried, bought, sold and traded. He just laughs when I say "i have to go to the PO." I think he thinks I'm nuts.

So what does your DH/SO think of it?

That's why I just used my Mom's PP account to pay for an order! Now when my eBay auctions end I'll repay her!

My mom works almost 40 hrs a week and hates to clean. I clean her house and she pays me with paypal. That's my fun $ unless we are really broke. I usually do it around payday too so it can be extra.

Re: So what does your DH REALLY know about your CDing addiction?

I'm not sure how "addicted" I am yet, but DH knows about all the purchases. He was the one who had already set up a pp acct., so the e-mails go to him. We don't hide any purchases from each other, though. We also have a "rule" that either of us can buy anything we want (within reason) if it's under $50 - over that requires consultation with the other person! But we always tell what we have purchased.

So far, I think he is convinced I have gotten some good bargains, even though it is more $ than he thought it would be. He admits I have "done all the research" on how much stuff costs, so he is OK with everything so far. He also seems to think we already have enough stuff to get started! Ha! I've only just begun.....

Re: So what does your DH REALLY know about your CDing addiction?

He is totally cool with it. I had him sitting here with me the other night helping me pick out my fabric choices for my Little Rain dancer customs. He was all into it. He uses CDs too - his fave are FB. He even RINSES POOOOO!!!!!!! Actually, he does it ALL the time. I cant handle to do it. If its plop-able and doesnt really need rinsing I can do that but if it needs to be rinsed NO WAY! As long as I dont tap into the "real" money ALL THE TIME he doesnt care if I charge a dipe every once in awhile (I did today for the prestons pants lol). He goes to the PO for me too

Re: So what does your DH REALLY know about your CDing addiction?

He knows. I use "his" pp account, so he knows every time I buy or sell something. He'll often come home from work and say "So.. what'd ya buy today?" He far prefers cloth over sposies (we used sposies with our first two and for over a year on our third), and is a CDing pro! He rinses the occasional poopy diaper as well, but I don't expect it of him or ask him to do it.

DH doesn't get it, and unless I specifically say put a cd on her...he will reach for a sposie if they are in the house...lol. He doesn't care though, as long as I use paypal and not the bank account.

Re: So what does your DH REALLY know about your CDing addiction?

I spend more money on fabrics to make diapers than I do on actual diapers. But I get a $20/week "allowance" and I'm allowed to do whatever I want with it (plus any money I make from selling things). I only have to consult with DH if I need to go over that limit, and he's usually pretty forgiving. (I just bought a fitted and some wool from Dragonfly Boutiques and I think he just might be upset, but hey, it was my money!) lol

Re: So what does your DH REALLY know about your CDing addiction?

Sometimes I ask his opinion on what he would want me to get if I'm having a hard time deciding, LOL. I ask him pretty much every time I buy something, but since it comes out of my paypal I'm pretty much just telling him, LOL.
I show him ALL of the diapers I get when he gets home, LOL, I got a BBL today and he goes "Oh, that's cute" LOL
