Rocking Chair / April 30, 2018 / Reyna Bush
At some point in history rocking chairs arrived in the USA. It would be convenient to link their arrival with that of the 'Mayflower' but they were not heard of until about a hundred years after the pilgrims arrival and it wasn't until the 1800's that American furniture manufacturers saw any merit in their production. When they did, the Salem, Boston and American Windsor rocking chairs were born. These were all popular and were used mostly for sitting in the garden or relaxing on the porch.
So you thought all along you were the only one entitled to get frazzled day in and out? Now that you know, perhaps you'll get your own mommy-sized rocking chair too. Try trying a rocking chair and feel the calm spreading all over you. That's the same thing that would happen to your little girl if she goes on board her kids rocking chair.
