I got these two rockers for mother's day this year. I think they're the perfect gift because they're so lovely but also and mostly because I am a sentimental person. In my mind I've pictured having long talks with my kids on these rockers in the upcoming years. We'll watch the rain, sunsets, clouds, etc. and just talk about what's going on in their lives. These will be chairs my children and I bond in. or at least that's the way I see it. Isn't that what front porches are for?
oh yeah, and we'll eat while we talk.
So Brent took Jackson shopping to buy my present. Jackson walked in first and told me I had to be quiet that it was a secret and I couldn't say anything. (Brent must have prepped him b/c he knows I love finding out what I'm getting for such occasions.) I asked Jackson if he knew what it was and he kept answering me in whispers that I couldn't talk and we had to be quiet. really cute. then when Brent walked in after hiding them, I told him how well Jackson had done at keeping it a secret then Jackson very joyfully squealed "It's a rocking chair!" I thought it was hilarious but Brent vowed to never take him shopping for a surprise again.
