I have been wanting a new pram for ages as my 3 and half year old Phil & Teds isn't cutting the mustard anymore. DH is against getting a new one as I have said previously that I don't want a third child (we have 2 DD's) so we can run this one into the ground.

Soooooo, I just agreed to having another baby ph34r.gif

New pram is coming my way.... ph34r.gif

So ladies, tell me a crazy deal you've made so I'm not alone!

I'm sorry, but nothing is going to top that!

Wow! When I wanted a new pram and DH didn't I just told him what an absolute "bargain" a store had on the one I wanted, I agree there's no topping that one wink.gif

I doubt it will top that deal. But... I made a deal with my hubby that he could buy a new (bigger, but cheaper to run) motor for our boat if I could have a boob job.

I should add I just need them lifted, after almost 5 years of breast feeding they're quickly heading south! blush.gif

he signed the paperwork the day she announced that she was pregnant!

I agreed to get married if I could choose whether/not to have a child.  

Funny how this is the third reply so far that relates to having a baby!

I agreed with hubby he can have an Aston Martin if he got me pregnant.

We have a 13 month old now. He's still waiting on that Aston. I suspect it's a long wait Tounge1.gif

Not topping that. Deals done by us....

Wedding in Sydney and I would live in Melbourne.


We were in Las Vegas. dH wanted to play golf at Pebble Beach. I told him he could play ($850) if he won the money ($100 gambling limit). He joined a house poker tournament and won.... $2k so $200 on cashmere jumper for me, golf for DH. Happiness all around.

Not going to beat those, but I gave 8yo a container of silver coins the other day, and told him if he sorted and counted them into $2 bags, we could take it to the bank, and he could have it for holiday spending money.
I thought it might have $10 at the most, but he was ecstatic to find that he had counted $19.80 into bags, and quickly ran to get his money box, so he could add 20c and make it $20

I suppose it was a good deal, and it did keep him quiet for a while!

This was done out of desperation at the time but I made a deal with DS that if he could keep absolutely silent for an hour I would buy him any Lego he wanted. Luckily it was only the Lego city police station he was after.

You have to understand that at that period in his life he could talk underwater and not come up for air :z

Crazy is certainly the right word.

Some women and their prams, I just don't get it.  shrug.gif

DH was able to get another project car if i could get a boob job. He's got his car and once my braces are paid for, i'll be starting the savings for the surgery original.gif

Wow OP, you got ripped off, you should have gotten more for a kid! Tounge1.gif
In a discussion about how many kids we could have/afford, I made a deal with my DH that the first 2 kids are free (because I want two), and that if he wants more kids after that he has to make a million per kid.

He said fine.

I'm still waiting for my million...  wwhistle.gif

I made a deal with dd that if she could stay quiet for ten minutes id give her $10, she won.

Dd made me a deal thatif i or anyone else for me bought a pack of smokes i owed her $20, she hasnt gotten any money from that deal yet, and ive been smoke free for a while.

I made a deal with dp that if he chased an old employer up for what they owed him he could get his bike.  Then he felt bad after getting his bike, bike licence and all that went with it and bought me a hand reared galah.

Ive made other deals with dp in the past but never something to have a baby.

You win OP wink.gif

Wonder how I can bargain my husband into having number 4 Tounge1.gif he's adamant it wont be happening.
I don't think a new pram will entice him.

I hate skiing but my DH loooves skiing and is always trying to get me to go skiing with him. Anyway, we'd been together for 13yrs and he'd been very resistant to the idea of getting married. Sooooo, I thought I was being really safe when I jokingly said that I'd go skiing when he asked me to marry him.

Guess what he asked me on my 40th birthday?? tongue.gif

We've been married for 3 1/2 yrs and I still haven't gone skiing. To be fair, though, I'm waiting for DS to be 3yrs old before we go skiing so that DS can start skiing lessons.

Geckogirl - lol I really can't picture you skiing! Although L would look really cute in a snow suit.

Maybe we could tee it up that we go together and our DHs can hot the slopes and we can hit the bar for cocktails!

We made a deal if hubby got a race bike for the track I could have a baby! Sadly it took 2 years and IVf to get the baby, but we were both happy  Tounge1.gif

Love this idea! Especially the cocktails! Anything that can keep me off the slopes. lol

DH got really excited when I told him. He said "Tell her 'It's a date!' ".

I think both our boys would look really cute in snow suits. Can you imagine them skiing when they are so tiny? Soooooo cute!
