My gift to myself...

Okay, so this will sound dumb to some of you but I do not buy or do anything for myself unless it is an immediate NEED. So, I got this rocking chair when I was pregnant with Sarah and loved it. But... It was not the nicest chair made, and that became apparent when I had Joseph and the seat cushion was DEAD and the arm rests would cut off blood supply to my hands and they would fall asleep everytime I nursed him. (Just a side note, Joseph nursed every hour and a half all night and all day until he was 10 months old!) Well, as annoying as that was, I suffered through it with Hannah and Caleb. (I nurse them in here so Shawn can get enough sleep) WELL, I decided that I deserved to have a chair worth sitting in with the next one since I spend a lot of time there. So, I went to the store and got me a GREAT chair cushion (they didn't have green and I was so sad) It is SO comfortable! Then, I got some leftover foam from another project and some green fabric and made some supper soft arm rests. Now when I sit in this chair I feel like I am a princess and don't want to get out. I know it doesn't look like much, but I am so happy about my new gift to myself!

Heather you deserve that chair! Do not put yourself last! I know we all do that as mom's, but if you put yourself first there will be plenty of you left over for everyone else. Many happy rockings!! PS- Next time you go to the Gale Museum give me a call- we live really close to it and would love to see you!
