Thereâ€™s nothing quite like nesting. You know, that period of time when an expectant mother wants to do one thing and one thing alone.
Clean, organize, paint, you name it. The closer it gets to the big due date, the more a pregnant momma wants her nest to be in tip top shape.
Even if that means a large project like a bathroom remodel. And thatâ€™s exactly what Jess and Alex Monney opted to do.
With 4 weeks to go until their babyâ€™s arrival, this couple decided it was as good a time as any to spruce up the bathroom in their California home.
If you know me, you know I love house projects. However, even I think I might be a little crazy for kicking off a bathroom remodel 4 weeks before Iâ€™m due. Bye bye bathroom! đź‘‹đźŹ» And sorry in advance for the bathroom remodel updates to come. pic.twitter.com/yCJJN0A0KL

â€śI think I might be a little crazy for kicking off a bathroom remodel 4 weeks before Iâ€™m due,â€ť Jess shared in a caption on Twitter.
But itâ€™s not Jessâ€™ sudden urge for new tiles and paint that has the internet rolling in laughter. Rather, itâ€™s what the Monneys discovered behind the old tiles and paint thatâ€™s truly hilarious.
According to a message written on the wall, this is not the first remodel the San Jose home has seen. In 1995, another set of owners decided to do the exact same thing.
Alex Monney tweeted a snapshot of the photo their contractor found while working on the bathroom. â€śHi! Weâ€™re the Shinsekis,â€ť the message began.
Apparently, theÂ Shinsekis had a sense of humor. â€śWe remodeled this bathroom summer 1995â€¦â€ť their message continued. â€śâ€¦Whatâ€™s wrong with the way we did it?!?!â€ť
Though Alexâ€™s original tweet and photo has since been removed, that didnâ€™t stop the whirlwind of responses from coming in.
Followers seem to be more concerned with the bunny included in the photo than with the remodel hilarity.
Iâ€™ve heard the bunny is living out his golden years in the U.K., where he is currently working on his memoirs. Heâ€™s quite cozy in a little smoking jacket, with a tiny glass of brandy and a wee little fireplace to snuggle near. #bunnyretirement

Yes, thatâ€™s correct. TheÂ Shinsekis also pasted a photo of their pet rabbit, Cassie, just beneath their remodel message.
In case you were wondering, Cassie was potty trained. Iâ€™m sure the Monneys would pay good money to sit down withÂ Shinsekis over coffee, and find out exactly what happened to Cassie.
But thatâ€™s a story and a conversation for another day. For now, the Monneys will continue their remodel as they anxiously wait for their baby to be born.
