I am sure most of you could care less about this issue, but I am SOOOOO excited that I have to share. We FINALLY bit the bullet and purchased a new mattress.
The reason for my excitement is that I have never owned a "new" mattress. I have always had a "hand-me-down". We used Brandon's full size bed when we got married and about 3 years ago Brandon's parents offered us their KING size bed. It had quite a few years of sleep on it, but it was a K-I-N-G!!! I surely was not about to pass all that room up. It was great the 1st couple of years but over the last year not so much. Lets just say me and the couch have became well acquaint.
Hence the reason for the new addition to our bedroom. . .I 'll let you know how "well rested" I am tomorrow!
In other news....
The girls had a blast playing in the plastic wrap from the mattress and box springs.
Brynn's preschool is having Circus Week. Today she had to dress like a clown. This was tough. How exactly do you dress like a clown without owning a clown costume? We made it work with 2 different colored shoes, striped pants, Christmas shirt, unwashed hair, and a "hair tie" aka neck tie.I was very proud of myself , in that we went to Target after school today in our adventurous outfit. If you know me, you know this is out of the norm. I am 1 of those anal moms that wants my kids to look nice and have everything matching. Crazy, I know!! I am slowly starting to realize there are more important things to worry about. We did have several strange looks especially from the pharmacist. I quickly explained it was dress like a clown day.
Last news of the day...
Addie had shrimp for the very 1st time tonight. I am not sure if she liked it or not. It took her nearly 10 minutes to eat 1 popcorn shrimp. Brandon kept trying to get her to spit it out, but if you know my child...that was a big fat JOKE!!! She finally got it down. Maybe we'll try again once she has more than 6 teeth!
