Kids are sneaky. That's why we have to tell them we have eyes in the back of our heads and we can see what they're doing.
Eventually, they figure that one out.
They also figure out things online a lot sooner than we realize. Until, of course, the truck drives up with all their purchases.
This little girl was getting a Barbie.. but then went back online to TRACK the package and ended up ordering over $350 worth of stuff.
Which she did not get to keep. THAT's key. They should never get to keep their ill-gotten gain.
The mom was going to send it all back, but decided instead to donate it to a children's hospital. And that's a nice touch... one which a lot of us parents couldn't afford if we were in this situation. And with all the warm fuzzies of donating to the hospital, we're hoping the kid understands that what LED to the donation was WRONG.
She's reportedly banned from the Internet for a month. And will face harsh punishment should this happen again.
My problem? She's a little too pleased with herself, or at least that's how it looks in the photos.
That kid is lucky she's not my kid. I'm not that understanding. In fact, my kids will be the first ones to tell you that. But we never made national news ....well, not yet.
My badass little cousin ordered $300 worth of toys w/o my aunt & uncle knowing. This is a picture of how everyone found out. pic.twitter.com/wHWVhsMBYI— princess ria (@R_tatas) August 11, 2018

UPDATE: Kaitlin chose to donate all of the toys to the Children’s Hospital where she stayed for a week when she was a baby! She wanted to give a little joy to those who aren’t well🖤🖤 pic.twitter.com/M2Y5BK4P5M— princess ria (@R_tatas) August 15, 2018
This is not the only kid who has discovered how to do this.
A friend, who shall remain nameless, got an unexpected delivery of $49.99 worth of UNRETURNABLE pizza crusts because his kids tried to use Alexa to order pizza while he was in the shower.
These parents feel his pain... and then some.
When my son did it they offered to extend my prime membership for an additional 3 months for free... He ordered $473 worth of toys.. And a white comforter 😩— Ashley V.💋 (@SuperSaiyan19xx) August 13, 2018
So he could sleep in the $400 bouncer he ordered. 🤦🏾♀️ pic.twitter.com/OyWiCLXvC1— Ashley V.💋 (@SuperSaiyan19xx) August 13, 2018
