If you're a guy...you know exactly where this comes from (the Godfather).
If you're a girl...you 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?
Well...here at the fun house...I am going to the mattresses...literally.
Lemme start at the very beginning.
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 mattress...like 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."
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 go...me 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.
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...
