Yesterday we went to IKEA to pick up the last stuff we need for the nursery. Me now 4 weeks away from my due date, have to stop and rest every 5 minutes. So I sat down on a pile of rugs to take a breather while my husband came and brought me different kinds of rugs that we might pick for the little ones room.
So while I was sitting there, a lady came up to me and started talking. She told me about her kids, that she was also pregnant in October with all of them and then preceded to say:
"You know what I was doing when I went into labor? Shopping. Just like you are doing now. My boy came later that same night and he was 3 weeks early"
Then she went on her way. When my husband came back with another rug I told him the story.
He then said, OK lets go. And he gave me a ride on the cart. And then he told me to go sit down and wait for him while checking out. He also demanded that I stay put so he could go get the car. I was not allowed to carry the sheets I bought, even though he carried the curtain rods, the rugs, the changing table accessories and 10 other items with 2 hands.
When we came home, I was ordered to lay down on the couch while he made meatballs with gravy and potatoes.
Thank you dear crazy IKEA lady who spooked my man into doing exactly what I have been wanting him to do for the past 5 months. I owe you.
