I’m sorry to hear about your mishap. I will, however, caution that your cover-story may not have been as successful as you had hoped. Your daughters probably were as puzzled as your wife about the origins of that makeup. By process of elimination, who do you think that leaves?
It won’t be the last time. Its a very tangled web we weave, and over time, every overlooked item, no matter how small, becomes another clue. Its likely your wife’s curiosity (and perhaps fears) are already elevated by possibilities, such as was there another woman in my house.
That fear, those various clues, including the ones you didn’t know you had left behind, may begin to create doubts and begin to erode her trust. Then her search for confirmation of her fears will likely begin in earnest!
Maybe its time to confront your own fears and to have an honest conversation with your wife.
