These words were ringing in my head after I sent my very practical husband to Ikea to pick up a few things and he came back with multiple stacked boxes, of which I couldn’t lift! Kids plates, bowls and a dresser for my closet…that was the list! 3 things…2 of them small. Simple enough right?
Keep in mind that Ikea is a good hour from us and with two car seats in the back of our mid-sized SUV, I was certain that this fact combined with his practical awareness would certainly keep him from bringing any “extras” back with him. So as he pulled into the garage, I noticed that Lil’ Pea’s car seat was missing and I was having a hard time seeing through the back window of the car.
OH DEAR ME!
He flung open the door with a huge smile on his face and says ” I have a surprise for you”! OMG…what has he done?… decided to replace my entire line of cookware, dinner plates, bedding, or worse yet …my chair! No, no it couldn’t be that simple. He brought home 2 brand new beds for my girls AND a second dresser for my closet, among other “things”! I can understand coming home with a bag of cookies or even some cool Ipod gadget, but furniture? I love you honey, but you have some “plaining” to do!
The humor in all of this is that we just purchased beds for my girls a few months ago from Ikea and the one’s he brought home had one difference…just one.. the headboards that once had a metal piece running through them, now have a wood piece… That’s. The. Only. Difference.
I’ve still yet to figure out why I need second dresser. Perhaps for my large array of t-shirts (I have 8 ) or for my giant wardrobe of jeans (I have 4)…ooh, ooh or perhaps it’s for my gigantic collection of Victoria’s Secret Bras (I have 3)!
The Point? DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES SEND YOUR HUSBAND TO THE STORE!
