The big chair

When I was little (like three years old) my parents got a lazy boy rocker.  I have many fond memories in that chair. First sitting next to my mom or my dad, and then on their lap because I had gotten bigger. Then on the arm because a sibling had taken the lap position. That chair left many lasting impressions. It was the place where I was read the books: the cross and the switchblade, brother andrew, and the silver chair. I would also read many of my own books in that chair.  

Today I went to a furniture store to look at table designs. They happens to have some lazy boy recliners.  None that felt the same as the one growing up. But it left me wondering… if I am going to have a chair like that in my house with my kids.
