If you have more than one child, it can be a struggle to be able to sit down, relax and just read to them all at once, especially if they all fight over who gets to sit with mom or dad.
One father decided to create a solution to that exact problem by building a three seat rocking chair so he was able to read to all three of his kids, together — and they all can sit with him!
This special chair has two little side seats and a big one in the center so that Dad can hold the third baby in his lap. This makes it super easy for all of the kids to be able to see the pages in the book!
Going for over $7000 online, this chair is made up of more pieces than over 20 rocking chairs combined. In order to get the right angle, Dad did what he had to do to make the perfect story time chair for his three daughters. On his website, he explains the exquisite craftsmanship that makes this heirloom chair cost so much!
“I did not have a lap large enough for three children [so] I had to come up with something”
Hal Taylor created it when his third daughter, Rose, was born
“When Rose was born, she proved herself to be the ‘communicator’ in the family… she was NOT going to be left out of the reading crowd!”
“Now, all three children could have a comfortable seat when reading”
“There are over 200 precisely cut and shaped pieces of wood which I use to make up the 19 back braces”
“That is more pieces than you will find in 20 normal rocking chairs!”
“I have heard it said that children change your life more than you change theirs’ I believe that to be true”
