This is how you break dh down

Long story short, in a few months time we are going to have one king and three queen beds in our house. I spent about 15 fifteen minutes explaining how we needed two fitted king and 4 fitted queen sheets, all matching and interchangeable, and how king flat sheets will fit on queen beds, so we'll just get four king flat sheets, as well as four or five king blankets, and all matching of course, and all the same pillow cases, so everything is interchangeable. I went on and on about how that would simplify the linen closet and since we were buying fewer we could get better quality, etc. Finally he just looked at me and said "you can buy whatever you want if you just shut up!"

This is how I approach diaper buying. Talk enough and he won't give a rip as long as he doesn't have to listen!

Me too! And the idea of being naked & intimate on the same bedding my children sleep on would sooo kill any moment. But if someone kept going on & on & on & on about it (like my kids can go on & on & on about wanting a new toy) I would beg them to do whatever they want & leave me the heck alone - including in bed.

I wish we had mattresses mostly the same size so we wouldn't have to unfold everything to figure out what fits where
