This chair has been a center point of my world for the last five and a half years.
It has stood true, creaking toward the end, but always giving a place to nurse, feed, snuggle, rock, sing, sleep, read, laugh and cry. And today, it has found a new home. It is just across the hall, newly designated as my reading chair, but still, it's presence is missed.
It's time had ended though. We need room for this.
Clare no longer fit in my arms in that chair. She no longer needed my body as a pillow to sleep. She needed the next step. She needed a big girl bed.
We do need to get her a little stool to help with a boost into that big bed though.
