what to make of smart daddy-o?

So I made my Christmas list for smart daddy-o
1- A new 19” LCD monitor (a true necessity for my online gallery- and blogging)
2- A Gigantic mirror from IKEA (I have a thing for really big mirrors- being tall I hate nothing more than not being able to see my shoes and the top of my head in the same view- but this mirror is so huge I could be twice as tall and still see my whole self along with 5 other people).
So what does smart daddy-o do? He goes to Ikea gets the mirror and hangs it on my bedroom wall. I leave him alone in the office for an hour and bam a few days later the UPS guy knocks on my door and hands me my new monitor. Remember it’s not Christmas, it’s October. So I have decided this wife spoiling has to mean something because I don't think I am THAT good of a wife. 1- My husband has some secret other life and this is his elaborate diversion 2- He’s pulling some Johnny Lingo move and trying to get me to be a better wife by making me believe in myself by showering me with extravagance 3- I really am that good of a kisser 4- He is just that nice and loves me that much or 5- He is just to lazy to wrap them and very pragmatic and figures if he gives it now he can always use the “well this way you could start enjoying it” line, but remind me on Christmas what my gift was. So which do you think it is?

I have no experience with that kind of spoiling. Perhaps he's trying to make up for his trip to Japan next month.

Hmmm...well my husband has problems with delayed gratification so if it were him it would be number 5.

And ita with Beth-- if it were Eddie it would definitely be #5, with no presents under the tree for me come December!

Maybe his calendar pages got mixed up.

Well, I was thinking maybe he's trying to impress your mom who is in town about what a great husband he is :-) No, of course it's because you're great and no sense in wrapping it since you always get the mail and packages.

I would say that he probably just loves you that much...but he might pull the "you already got your gifts" trick on Christmas morning.
