Our little dog Frankie is about to experience his first major baby-related change. It’s going to be rough. And it’s going to break my little heart.
You see, we have this big green chair in our living room. Despite being rather worn looking, it’s actually in great shape and is super comfortable. The problem is that it’s too big for the space we have and it is awkwardly placed in the corner. It’s rarely used by humans because it doesn’t provide the best TV viewing angle and, as a result, it’s become Frankie’s chair.
He loves sleeping and cuddling there (with a blanket, of course) while we watch TV, blog and generally hang out. Plus he has a great view out the window…
In fact, Frankie is snoring in that chair right now as I type. He loves his little spot. What Frankie doesn’t know yet is that this chair is moving. To the nursery. It just seems like the perfect chair for bedtime stories as our little baby turns toddler.
Although I originally intended to buy this simple and cheap chair from Ikea (it’s even available to order online, which is amazing), I wondered why I would do that when we have a perfectly big, comfortable chair that is not really being used…except by Frankie. And you know that I’d love to take on an upholstery project!
My sister made the great suggestion that we should move the chair soon so that Frankie doesn’t relate the big change directly with the baby. But as he lays there now, it’s hard for me to imagine stealing “his” chair. But whose chair is it anyway?
While I search out the perfect gray upholstery fabric, I’ll just let him sleep peacefully and dream about his new baby brother.
