It’s normal for us females to have little obsessions. Shoes are a popular weakness. Handbags are another thing that females can develop an obsession for. Jewellery makes some go weak at the knees. And the thing about these female obsessions, age appears to be no barrier. Little girls go clomping about in Mummy’s high heels wearing their plastic beads and swinging a little handbag.
My girl has developed her first love.
She likes chairs.
This was the first time she discovered she could climb up onto a chair by herself. She then sat their like a queen and watched the boys playing with a regal air.
In the next few days we travelled up to my parent’s beach house for a holiday. Imogen was overjoyed to discover some chairs there. Once again, she was happy to recline and supervise.
From then on, you never knew when you would turn around and discover you were being observed from her seat of prominence.
The many faces showing the delight that chair sitting brings.
Next she discovered the tub chair. She was pretty proud of herself.
The boys joined in. They all thought it was a fun chair to hang out in.
(Until Missy crash tackled one to the ground rather than share it. No really it’s true!)
But back in the early days, the boys would have done well to heed this warning face. Basically it means, “You toucha ma chair, I breaka your face.”
Because the other day Toby was discovered sitting on HER chair. Immediate action was initiated.
And before you knew it, she showed him who is boss of all chairs within this house! You sit on my chair, I sit on you.
What are you obsessed with? (Or do you have a child with a strange obsession?)
