Is there such a thing as dinner in bed?

Because this is what our dining room looks like right now…

Mattress in dining room

I thought it would be a nice Valentine’s Day surprise to have our new mattress (which came in four boxes) put together before my husband got home from work.

I spent the last hour plus wrestling with these latex layers with a baby on my backĀ (and sweating, even though I turned the heat off).

I finally got the cover zipped up, only to realize I put the layers in upside down. Also it’s so heavy there is no way I’m getting this thing to budge by myself.

At least someone is having fun…

Happy Valentine’s Day!
