🔥 Spicy Bedroom Mishap Leads to Puppy-Sized Disappointment! 🐶💔

So, here's the tea: 🍵 MIL stumbled upon a certain 'accessory' 👀 in our bedroom while fetching a towel for our kiddo. 🧴 She assumed it was for a new puppy 🐶 and spilled the beans to our excited children at dinner! 🍽️ Plot twist: there's no puppy, just a very personal item! 😳 I asked MIL to clear up the misunderstanding with the kids, but she's dragging her feet. ⏰ Hubby thinks we should just break the news ourselves, 🗣️ but I'm not ready to shatter their puppy dreams! 💔 The internet's turn: Am I wrong for putting my foot down and insisting MIL cleans up this mess? 🙅‍♀️ Let the judgment commence! 🤔
