Mama Wheaton said...

I better not show my kids that, for sure we would be doing it all night. But it does look fun!

Kimmy said...

That's awesome!! I would totally be having fun on that....along with my husband and my 6 yr old daughter..lol! Too fun!!

Pennies In My Pocket said...

OMGOSH that looks like SO much fun! haahha I totally remember doing that when I was a kid. We used cardboard boxes. Oh the rug burns when we'd slip off! haha

Congrats on being SAUCY!!

I feel so bad that I missed youe SITS day yesterday!!!

tara @ kidz said...

Oh my goodness this is totally what my cousins and I did at my grandma's house every time the adults weren't looking. Sometimes I think they turned a blind eye because they knew it was so much fun for us! The video just made me smile!

The Mommy said...

That looks like so much fun I'm almost envious that we don't have stairs in our house! lol Good for you for taking part! :)

Lynette said...

OMG I'm backing out of that one real fast.....LOL My husband gets so mad at the kids for taking their beanbags and riding down the stairs, of course this idea would work MUCH better....but still! HAHAHAHA

sewkandi said...

Woo, that looks like so much fun. I amy have to try that one day with my kids. They would love it.

Karen said...

I am such a mom. My first instinct was "STOP THAT!" and then I realized that, really, there's no harm being done. Except for the concept of sliding down the steps on mattresses.

angi_b72 said...

that looks like fun!! We don't have steps, but we did as kids, I wonder why we never did this as kids? lol

Stesha said...

Okay I love it, wish I could take a turn.

Lori said...

that is too funny 10 pts for creativity!

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

you are one cool mom -!!

Jess said...

That looks so fun!!! We can't do that here. With the speed you would pick up coming down our stairs you would slam into the wall really, really HARD!! haha

Kel said...

oh how cute...I would totally ride on the slide too!
~K

ElleBee said...

Totally cracked me up! Of course, I would've had to take a ride as well! ;)

Emily said...

ok.. that looks totally FUN:) Wish we had stairs in our house and I would do it:)

MBB Founder and Editor Denene Millner said...

LOL!!!! That looks like a blast... oh, I have to HURRY up and click off of this, before my kids get some ideas!!!

Renée aka Mekhismom said...

That looks like loads of fun. If I ever did such a thing my mother would KILL me. Cool moms rule!

Diamond said...

Looks like fun! Very nice blog :-).

the cubicle's backporch said...

We used to slide down in sleeping bags b/c they were slick on the outside. Talk about flyin' down some stairs! I think we'd finally quit when someone got hurt!

Nicole said...

First of all...what floods of memories are coming back!! Ha ha...I remember doing that as a kid!! And secondly...why aren't all stairs just made out of mattresses anyway?! How fun would that make life?!! :)

Funny!

Betty said...

Your kids are very creative! :)

We have no stairs in our house, so mine never thought of this, but they tried other stuff.
It looks like fun and you are so cool to try it too!

Andie said...

That looks like too much fun! Thanks for coming over and seeing me too! I know, by looking at that post, what people may think, BUT my Mom is 60 and hasn't had a thought about having any more kids for um... how old am I? And she lost the ability about 15 years ago... LOL

Megan said...

LOL That's hilarious!! Looks like something my sister and I would've done (and might have) when we were younger! :0P

ASHLEY said...

LOOKS LIKE A TON OF FUN, AND HOW GREAT THAT YOU JOINED IN.....I LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR FRIDAY GIVEAWAY!!!!

Ashley said...

What Fun!!

Solei said...

Let me start by saying that I am so glad that I am watching this when my girls are at school, 'cause that is something they would sooooo definitely do! In fact, they've done it from their beds where they throw the mattress to the side and slide from there, but the stairs, not yet!
And judging girl, not here. I would too! =0D

RandomWonders said...

Ahhh I wish I had stairs now! I want to do that!!

Michelle said...

LOL! This looks so fuN!!!! I would give it a try, also.

Jen Sue Wild said...

I love there creativity!! How fun!!

Just say Julie said...

hahaha! My son would love to that...unfortunately, our stairs end at a wall, and I'm scared of what might happen!

Casey's trio said...

My BFF and I used to do that when we were about 13! FUN TIMES:) Can't wait to hear about your giveaway on Friday!

Jen said...

Nice! I totally want to ride.

Discursivelyhappy said...

We've done this! However, we have one mattress and we slide down the stairs. And yes I took several turns, kinda scary! But had to do it again!

Valerie said...

Dang kids have ALL the fun!!

angie said...

I SO would have too......and would have been totally fine with the beds being dismantled to be used as sleds.....as long as I didn't have to clean up. :)

Pam said...

I am so glad you joined them!! I totally would have too!!

Mrs. S said...

That looks like fun. I wish my house had had stairs growing up. My apartment does now but I'd run into our computer table.

Gaspegirl said...

i've always wanted to try mattress sliding but never have...one day! especially since i now see what fun it is! :)

Delena said...

Oh my gosh! I love it. I totally would have tried it, too.

The Muse said...

My Turn!
LOL LOL

Letti said...

We just did this at my sister's home in Texas. My mom was the one who started it. By the end of the day I had even done it twice. My kids thought it was better than Disneyland.

Susie said...

That is toooooooo funny! This is not the first mattress slide I have seen:-)

Carrie said...

Oh my gosh! Can I come over and slide!! I'll tell you the infamous stairs incident from my childhood!

Dharm said...

What a fun blog!!

Rebekah said...

Oh yesa, I would be right there with them. But still, Im not showing this video to my kids

Rhea said...

Hey, that's pretty creative! I'm impressed. Teens can do a lot more damage and get into a lot of trouble when they're bored. You lucked out!

I'd totally do it too. Looks like fun!

Michelle said...

oh that slide looks so fun! How creative!
