Picture This Chair Story
Now think about yourself as a little girl or boy. Picture yourself in Kindergarten and sitting on those tiny little blue chairs around the circle table. Your hands are sticky because you are rolling out Modeling Clay. You are so proud and are wearing a big smile because your creation is exactly as you wanted it to be.
This time you are in grade 3 and your chair has grown. Although it still is blue it is a bit taller now and you are tucked into your own desk in class. You are working out a math equations in your Hilroy Notebook with your freshly sharpened lead pencil. The math problem your teacher gave you is posing to be a challenge and just before you’re about to raise your hand for help, all of the sudden, the answer comes to you. A huge smile comes over your face.
Let’s jump to your freshmen year of high school. You are slouching in your blue chair with your left elbow on your desk and your left hand on your head. English class always seems boring, so once again you are doodling on your Five Star Zipped Binder, daydreaming about the boy or girl you are crushing over. Finally a smile takes over as you picture their face.
Life After SAHM
Your last child is off to full-time Kindergarten. After being home with your four children for over 9 years you are feeling very bittersweet about the milestone. On one side you are happy for your child because he is over the moon to be growing up. On the other hand you are feeling lost about where this new chapter leaves you. You have much to smile about but what makes you smile in this exact moment is your thought about your new Staples Bilford Manager’s Chair in Black you are sitting on. Finally a padded seat is just what your behind needs to welcome your new milestone and turn the page on your new chapter.
Have you ever thought about what happens in your chair? Or your child’s chair at school? To be honest, I never did either until Staples reached out to me and got me thinking when they asked me this question:
What Will Happen in Your Chair this year?
This year, I will read my children’s school newsletters and I will tell my story to you, from my office chair.
This year, I will plan my family getaways, from my office chair.
This year, I will be inspired and I will make a difference, from my office chair.
Tell us…What Will You Do In Your Chair?
A lot can happen in a child’s chair in one year: an inspiring idea, an A+ paper, even a fridge-worthy masterpiece. Staples wants to hear your Chair story. Who knows, they may show off your Chair story somewhere down the line 😉
