Day 80: Start eating a piece of furniture. Frequently you hear a parent say that there is nothing their children can do that they haven’t already done. Em is exceptional in many ways. And today’s challenge is a reminder of one of them. I have never eaten a chair, or at least not that I can recall. She has.
These chairs were originally in my grandmother’s kitchen. Then they were in the house I grew up in. I believe there were originally six. Then there were four. Now I have two of them in my bedroom. They serve as a reminder of time gone by.
I hope someday Em has that gnawed on chair in a corner of her bedroom. And I hope her children ask her if it’s really true what their grandmother says… that she was the one that chewed it.
