Smell My Armpits!!!

Well, Isaiah has a little lisp, so it sounds more like, "Smell my armpit-ths!"
He has found a certain joy in putting on Daddy's deodorant and then running around the house and making everone comment on just how fresh and manly he smells. Fun times :)

In the bad timing dept: Our bedframe from Ikea broke. So we went to Ikea on Friday and picked out a new one. Dragged it home, put it together. Then Saturday my uncle offers me his beautiful bedroom set because his wife decided to redecorate - again. Dilemma! Do I return the one I just got for a whole new set? Then I have to rent a truck to pick up the set. My hubs loves the new bed bc it's brushed nickel, he doesn't really like wood very much. My uncle's set is dark wood, with a big beautiful four poster bed frame. *sigh* For those of you who don't know, I've never owned an actual bedroom set. Always just picked up a piece here or there, or whatever cast offs we got from family. So even 2nd hand, it's still a set. *bigger sigh* So I wavered on it for a few days. This morning I laid it all out and hubs said, as he usually does, "Sweetie, whatever you want is fine."

We used to have a matress pad under our mattress, instead of a box spring. When we picked up the new frame, we also got a box spring. We took the mattress pad and put it on the floor that night so the kids could camp out in our room (which, for some reason, is a big exciting thing for them) The next morning, they inform me that my bedroom is now their dojo, and they're practicing their ninja moves. Oooohkay.

So my weekend was spent smelling armpit-ths in the dojo.

Ahahahahaha! Belly is too funny! I'm sure he smelled peachy clean. :)

Since I'm all about saving money, I'd so take the Ikea bed back and accept the donated one. That is awesome! I love dark wood!!

I giggled with the smelly armpits! Kids are just so funny.

It's a toss up with the bedroom set. We just got rid of our bedframe this weekend because with our bedroom set it made our room feel smaller than it should.
Not sure if this was much help :-)

Heh. That's funny.

We don't have a headboard bc our bed is huge. One of my dressers is in the Dae girl's room so lots all my jeans are sitting on a shelf. And poor HH just has very little clothes space.

I'd be all about the dark wood though. I'm not much of a metal-y type gal. And it's a set. And free. Etc...
