My first memory of rocking chairs is when I used to travel down to my Grandparents house for a visit. We would sit in the living room, rock back and forth and catch up on what had been happening in our lives since that last time were together. It was a relaxing, special time that I will always remember. We weren`t worried about schedules, places to be, or what chores needed to be done. We just took a few minutes to step away from the stress of everything and enjoy our time together. Grandma had her rocking chair, and Grandpa has his. They also had one for the grandkids and my brothers and I always fought over who got to sit in it. It was your classic style chair for rocking just like the adult ones, only smaller. We felt just like grown-ups, rocking right along with them. The rocking motion was rhythmic and soothing, seeming to have a calming effect on any child who sat in it.
Although many people own a rocking chair, not everyone owns a rocking chair to sway. Many times people will have a rocking chair in the room to give it a homier feel. It can also be used as part of the décor because many people use the rocking chair in the designs to get the country look. Rather it`s for show or to rock, you can bet a throw will be on the chair. Rocking chair`s are very beautiful and usually handcrafted wood. To give it a more subtle look sometimes a throw will be laid on the back of the rocking chair.
Just as I enjoyed rocking in a children`s rocking chair when I was little, so do my children. They are following in the same footsteps that I did when I was little. They not only love to sit with me and rock, but they also enjoy the independence of rocking in their own chair. And children`s rocking chairs have come so far from when I was little. At my grandparent`s house, it was just your simple brown. Today, children have a multitude of choices. They can choose a classic style in a myriad of colors, or choose one that is more theme based. Whether they are an artist, into sports, animals, or even a royal prince or princess, chances are you will find a children`s rocking chair to fit their interests. It`s fun to look back in time to when you were little and then to see your own children enjoying the same things you did. It just goes to show you how rocking chairs are timeless, and how people (young and old alike) never get tired of rocking.
No one really knows how much work goes into making a rocking chair. It may just seem like a regular chair placed on curved wood, but it`s more than that. The back of the chair must be slighted just right or the person will tip. The legs of the "chair" are much shorter and have to be just the right angle. Finally, the slop in the runners and the placement of the legs has to be just right or the chair won`t be stable.
