Do you remember the story? Here’s a layman’s recap:
A Queen is determined to find a Princess for her son….so every maiden who passes through their home is required to sleep on stack of mattresses, probably 10-15 high. Underneath the bottom mattress is a pea. After their rest, they are all questioned (by the Queen) about how well they slept. The Queen knows she will recognize a ‘true princess’ when she encounters the one woman who slept poorly because of that little pea buried deep below all of the mattresses. Apparently only a ‘true princess’ would be sensitive enough to feel something that small and have her slumber disturbed.
Well, that’s me. Minus the Princess part, of course. If I’m not comfortable, I can’t sleep. This means too hot, too cold, wrinkles in the sheets under my leg, my pjs twisted under my side.
Hence, (princess reference) I am here at my computer before the sun is up. I changed wet sheets on beds twice last night and slept with a little prince of my own. What are the chances I can keep from yawning through making the kids breakfast? 🙂
