    I thought this was my chair?!?

    It took awhile, but my Aeron chair is now back in business. As excited as I am to have it back though, I never expected that someone else would be even more excited about it… G.

    See, Neko has been a big fan of the Aeron chairs for awhile: especially in the summer, as the perforated seat gives him some belly ventilation on those warm days.

    I wasn’t expecting G to run to the chair and immediately upon setup and demand a ride. Now, I can’t get him out of my chair!!! I even tried seat-sharing but he kicks me out… literally. He pressed his feet against my back, pushes off and says “Up”. S and I considered getting him an anywhere chair, but I guess we don’t have to: the kid prefers Aeron 🙁

    Don’t ask me what’s up with the noodle while in the chair: for him the two go hand-in-hand. He runs over with the noodle and wants up.

    On some level though I’m glad he likes this thing. G is such a non-stop kid. He’s always running. ALWAYS!!! It’s as if he’s catching up (distance wise) for not walking on the early side of the other kids. This chair is seriously the only time he will sit in one spot for more than 3 seconds.

      I LOVE these pictures! He looks so triumphant. Jasper also likes to play “king of the chair or couch” and push us off!

      Adorable =) Such a big boy! Every time we cut James’ hair we’re shocked at how old he looks (probably because we only cut it about once a year and it gets so shaggy…)

      You might try one of the flip out foam kid size sofas, they’re a big hit around here, we had to get Heidi her own for her birthday because the one we had was getting fought over all the time… and they’re cheap, like $30-$40. All the kids that come over love them too. Of course I’m sure it wouldn’t compare to mom’s chair 😉

    4. I want an Aeron chair so bad… G is a smart kid! He knows the good stuff! 🙂

        Evonne, have you checked Craigslist? We got our chairs about 8 years ago after the company S and I worked in had to lay everyone (in the SF office) off and liquidate a lot of their office equipment. S bought off a bunch of the Aeron chairs and then re-sold them. We kept 2 for ourselves. They really ARE great and everyone at home loves them… even Neko (especially during the hot summer days)
