Elf was in tears to see this mattress go. It was very hard on him to see things change at home. He'd have liked to have kept his old mattress. But it was around 30 years old. It had springs that would pop out and poke him during the night. We'd pull and clip one problematic piece of metal to find another pop out a few days later. And they were sharp little sticks, too. Yet Elf was very sad. After a night of sleeping on his new mattress, however, Elf has concluded that while he's very sad to see the old mattress go, he thinks he "can get used to" the new one well enough. Maybe he doesn't really want the old one back after all.
