We’re going to be working on Eleanor’s new ‘big girl’ bedroom soon, and Brandon would like us to put a chair in there. I hadn’t thought about it because I assumed we’d just sit on her bed, but the attached guard rails are going to make that difficult, so a chair it is.
At first I thought we could use the Petrie armchair from the adjacent library, but it’s too large. Then I remembered the rocker. “It’s perfect for her room,” I told Brandon. “It’s low to the ground so E can get in and out easily, and she’ll love that it rocks! And it’s cheap (for a chair). I think it’s only $250.” He agreed. Then I went to look for it (and to double check that price), and it was no longer available. Cue the sad trumpet, wah wah.
Then today as I’m browsing the UO site, I notice that it’s back, and in a cute new lime color. Huzzah! It’s $289, a bit more than I had remembered, but still doable.
Come on home, little chair! We have the perfect spot all picked out for you.
