When we started getting ready for the baby, we converted the office to a nursery. DH and I both work from home. The deal was that we would set up a desk in the master bedroom to work from when one of us needed privacy for work. The desk hasn't been moved to the bedroom yet - it's currently in the dining room.
So for the last two months, DH has been working from our old glider in the nursery. DH is a really big guy - around 300 lbs. (I'm not writing this to complain about his weight, so please don't read it that way) The problem is that he has completely killed the cushion in the glider. It's also starting to creak due to the way he leans back in it all day.
I was planning to spend hours every day nursing the baby in this chair and now the cushion's flat and the chair's wobbly. I said something last week to remind DH that he needed to get the desk set up because the nursery chair isn't built for this kind of use, but he's up there again today in the glider. I know he'll veto buying a new glider just because this one's worn out and not broken. But I'm starting to get upset.
It's an older glider and I can't buy new cushions for it with matching armrests and everything. I might be able to get his grandmother to make me new ones - she used to be a seamstress and does that sort of thing alot. I just don't know what to do about it since I'm not in any condition to carry the desk and heavy office chair up the stairs myself. I don't want to hurt his feelings because he is sensitive about his weight, but I do need this chair in working order. I guess this is more of a vent post, but if anyone has any ideas that might help I appreciate it.
I guess another part that's irritating me is that I'm the one that put in all the work getting the nursery together. I put up the crib, painted the walls, decorated, everything. It's only since I made it nice in there that he's taken over the room. Now his work stuff is laying around and his coffee cups get left on the dresser and he's just generally screwing up my nesting!
