To The Mattresses!

If you're a know exactly where this comes from (the Godfather).

If you're a know exactly where this comes from too (You've Got Mail).

Ok, ok, I know that there are some girls (like me..sweet goodness do I love that movie. Well, that one and part two...but not part three. Man I am such a dork.) who knew where this line came from before You've Got Mail, but allow me to be politically incorrect. Its what I do best. Don't like it?

Too bad. at the fun house...I am going to the mattresses...literally.

Lemme start at the very beginning.

I love my husband dearly...but if something doesn't immediately affect him - he will put it to the back back burner and forget about it.

And I mean anything. Like, if I need him to go to the store to pick up 4 things - he will more than likely forget one of them. Like any other man right?

NO biggie - I've learn to live with it....and work around it.

Here is the latest thing.

A coupla weeks before Diva was born I noticed that one of the springs on my mattress was starting to poke out. I told my husband:
"Babe we are gonna need a before Diva is born. One of the springs is starting to poke out." 

"Is it through the mattress?" 

"No, not yet." 

"Ok, well we've got time then." 

"Oh, ok"

A very short while after Diva was born however, it started poking through. Again I said:

"Babe, we need to get a new mattress. The coil is poking through the mattress now. Its scratched me once already." 

"Ouch, sorry baby" 

"And its really awkward trying to feed Diva at night." 




So sympathetic, I know. He was out cold. Granted, I shouldn't have had this conversation in bed as he falls asleep really quickly. But honestly, its how a lot of our conversations talking to a sleeping man. Awkward...I know, but I'm used to it.

Now, Diva is almost a month old...and still...nothing. Now there are two coils/springs sticking out of the mattress. And me? I stay quiet. Suffering in silence - as my husband slept in peace.

Stinkin boogerhead.

But not no more suhckah!! Wanna know what I did?

My mom and I turned the mattress around. Now the coils/springs/whatever is sticking out on his side.

Booyeah!!! How you like me now suhckah?

Lets see how long we wait to get a new mattress now...

  1. Haha, yes sometimes dear daddy needs to feel YOUR pain before anything is done!!!! Good job girl! Hopefully you'll be in for a new mattress soon!!!

  2. Hahaha! That is brillant! You have more patience than me. I would have just gone ahead and started researching mattresses, etc. than told him we were going mattress shopping on this day (having cleared his calendar already).

    visiting from SITS

  3. LMAO - it's exactly what I would have done!!!! So, how long will it take for him to get a new mattress now??

  4. LOL hope it works!! Visiting from SITS. :)

  5. That is awesome! I would have switched sides with him.

  6. Just smack him next time, then wait til he is REALLY good and asleep. Then find that pokey wire, and get right up in his ear, and scream OUCH as loud as you can. When you are done peeling him off the ceiling, you should have a new mattress the very next day. ;)

  7. Congratulations on your SITS day. I hope it's a great day for you.

    Awesome way to deal with the mattress, by the way.

  8. You are so smart! He deserves the nightly reminder that you guys need a new mattress! LOL

  9. Haha! That's awesome and TOTALLY something I would do. :)

  10. Haha! I would've done the same thing, girl. ;) Can't believe your baby girl is almost a month old already!

  11. That is AWESOME. High five to you and your mom.


people who think I'm awesome say...
