Mattress Wrestling

Sunday, August 23, 2009

- no pervert, not THAT kind of mattress wrestling, the literal kind.

As I'm sitting making my to-do lists this early evening my mama rings me up and asks for my help. She needs me to come over and move a twin mattress up the two stairwells in the townhouse. She lives a whopping ten minutes away so I set the little man up with my SO and zoom over to be a good daughter.

It turns out my mom had purchased not one bed set, but 2. She is now in possession of 4 beds. Before you ask, 2 of them are set up as a daybed-sectional-sofa like thingy, 1 is her actual bed where she sleeps and 1 was meant for my son's room (side-note: my ex-husband is still my best friend and is roommates with my mom, hence my kiddo has a room in the same house as my mom)

Now you should know my mama is no weakling - she managed one of the sets herself down a flight of stairs entirely. But after rearranging her entire living space, she was a bit tired. The mattress intended for my son's room is UP a flight of stairs and this was my designated task. She wanted to help, but I saw this as a foe to be vanquished and would accept no assistance.

I beat that mattress into submission; I whupped it but good! In fact, I did it pretty easily, which only heightened the sweet taste of victory. I love how useful my newly developing muscles are! Jess - 1; Twin Mattress - 0

When I returned home from battle, the boy child ran up to me and said "I drank a yucky milk and it was GREEN" He seemed inordinately pleased by trying sour milk...

Forgot to clean out the fridge this weekend...whoops...Sippy cup - 1; Jess - 0

    lol, Not as bad as your kid finding an old cup like, behind the couch or something, from god knows when, and drinking out of it!

    Great job on beating that mattress. I find it funny about your son being pleased on drinking yucky milk. I'd say it was a boy thing but my daughter was the one that got a kick out of eating strange things. LOL

    Great blog. I had a good laugh!
