If You Give MaineMommy a Cookie...

Mission accomplished! We are the new owners of a f-ah-bew-less mattress, er, and box spring, er, and bed rail system...I digress.

And yes, we still have our original Moosehead headboard and footboard...although it is a bit like playing Where's Waldo to see it. Oops...note to self: buying a mattress is like the book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.

If you go on the hunt for a new mattress, the salesman will probably persuade you to try the plushest most expensive one in the showroom.

And if you try the plushest mattress, you will surely fall in love with it.

If you fall in love with it, you will agree to the highly overpriced and highly over sized purchase.

When paying for the mattress, you will be asked if you would like the matching box spring.

Not wanting to have a mismatched set, you will be conned into buying the matching box spring.

When moving in the new box spring and mattress, you will realize they are five to six inches taller than your old set.

And this added height makes your old bed frame practically disappear, and you that is when you realize...

When you go shopping for a new mattress, you might as well buy a whole new damn bedroom set.

Yours in sweet slumber,

P.S. The new bed is incredible, worth all the hassle and of course...all that and a bag of chips.

My mother-in-law bought us a new bed when I was pregnant, God love her. I laid myself on everything in that showroom that wasn't human and fell for a bed that cost roughly a mortgage payment, but you know what? My guilt is assuaged by all the awesome sleep I still get on that mattress.

My dad purchased a mattress as well and ever since, I had better sleep. I love my mattress.
