Once Upon a Mattress (a review)

Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Princess Miss M who had to sleep on a crib mattress that had belonged to her lovely cousin, Princess Caley and her siblings.  Now the mattress was fine and sturdy since it had lasted for many many MANY years.  But it was beginning to show its age.  You see, Princess Caley is fifteen years older than Princess Miss M.  Nevertheless, Miss M slumbered with no problems for three years on said mattress.  Then her sister was born.  Princess Baby C also acquired the slumbering aid.  By this time, their mother, the Queen, had discovered the wonders of the internet and all that it can behold.  She found a website, Go Green Street,  that was having a giveaway for a crib mattress.  Oh, what joy it would be if she would win this.  Perhaps Baby C would sleep longer and more restful if this dream would come true!  So the Queen entered said contest and crossed her fingers and waited.

Then, one day, she was checking her email and behold...she had won!  Fanfare and trumpets were heard throughout the land as the good word was heard.  After a bit of a wait, the magical mattress finally appeared at the Queen's doorstep!  Hooray!  The Queen quickly set to work at placing the new mattress into the crib and taking out the old.  She immediately could see a difference.  There were no spaces from the mattress to the crib railings.  It was a solid well-made mattress that was constructed out of coconut husks and wrapped in lambswool.  Sweet slumber would quickly come to the Princess Baby C!

Alas, many slumber filled nights have be felled the land since that joyful day and although Princess C is definitely now a fine sleeper, one can not be confident that it is because of the fine mattress.  Do not get me wrong, my lovely reader, it is a top of the line mattress and full of organic natural goodness.  High recommendations abound, but be forewarned of the cost of this piece of wonder.  That is the sad part of this tale but one the Queen did not have to pay. Hip Hip Hooray!

Side Note: When Miss M saw me downloading these pictures, she said, "Those are just pictures of a mattress.  No one is going to want to read about that!"  Is she right?...
