I am not even kidding you that tonight while I sat on the driveway chalk-drawing whatever Ivy
But no, she meant "mote" like a remote control. Because our new mattress/bed has a remote control and can do all sorts of amazing things. Isn't she a hoot? I drew my best remote, too, btw. See there?
I have no idea why she made the bed on fire.
It's been several weeks now since we welcomed our new Serta iComfort adjustable bed into the family. I admit that initially I wasn't so sure about it. The first few night's sleeps were probably as can be imagined for a new bed- a bit awkward and unfamiliar- and this one was a special memory foam in the "Genius" style of the iComfort selection (on the more firmer side) at that. Our old bed was not even that old, and was a pillow top. But, it had my husband sleeping on the couch most nights because it was too soft, and me waking with constant backaches.
After the first week or so I found I was actually sleeping much more soundly on the iComfort. And Jeff had finally come back to bed. I fall asleep faster than I have in as long as I can remember. Granted, it could be in combination with the fact that Ivy sleeps in her own bed now, for which still feels really strange. Just the other morning we woke up with no kids in our bed- not even any middle-of-the-night-sleep-ninjas! And we kinda laid there and it was like weird. Jeff reminded me that we are entering a new chapter of our lives. No kids in the bed. It's wild. But also? it's my castle now and I get the bed-remote all to myself. Awesome.
We really noticed a difference when we went out of town for a couple days and lamented that the hotel bed just laid there, flat. Blah. We'd have to maneuver the pillows to watch the news. And we'd toss and turn almost all night. We are so spoiled with our new bed we both agreed. Among adjusting the bed however you want via remote control, there is also a PC/Lounge mode, positioning your legs and back just so. We are friends.
And of course the Serta iComfort comes in mattresses that just lie there- in four styles to choose from [$1299-$2499]. You don't have to have the adjustable platform but when they let me choose any one I wanted, um, it was a no brainer. (The Serta Motion Perfect adjustable base is an additional cost depending on which bed and size you buy.) And if you're not in the market for a new bed, the iComfort pillows [$79-$99] are hot stuff- no one is allowed to touch my contour-style iComfort pillow. You can visit icomfort.com to find a retailer nearest you.
We chose the Genius iComfort bed because my husband prefers a firmer mattress and I was honestly a little worried about the memory foam being a bit too form fitting. We visited an American Mattress store nearby to test them all out. I've definitely been surprised by how easy it was to "break in" and how you can totally jump on the bed (among other things wink) without making a sound or movement at all. Remember those commercials for a similar product where the wine glass won't spill? Yeah- it's like that!
Win! It's kind of crazy fun that I get to give away a Serta iComfort of the winner's choice. That means yes it can even be adjustable if you want, any size, any flavor of soft- or firm-ness. Serta gave me a roomy timeframe to host this giveaway and I thought Ivy's chalk promptings was a sign it was time to be a bed giver. Will it be yours?

: uber important legal disclosure stuff: Serta gave me an iComfort Genius bed and two iComfort pillows to keep, and they paid for my travel, hotel, and hot stone massage ahhhhhhh when I visited their headquarters in Chicago in May, and they are also giving me a stipend for tax purposes (awesome.)
