Sadly I do not mean rocker as in David Bowie. I’m talking about my ongoing obsession with finding a reasonably priced nursery rocker. A few months back I had posted about my search for a modern affordable glider or rocker here. While I pined over the Monte Joya rocker, alas, it was not in the budget. I eventually settled on an Eames rocker knock off.

Now, I must say, I LOVE that little chair. It’s super cute, the size is great for our little nursery and it has style. Is it the most practical rocker for a nursery? Probably not. The more mama blogs I read, and the more people I talk to, it seems like having a super comfortable place to chillax during a nighttime feeding is reallllly important. So, with limited budget in hand, I began my search again. This time I went to the boards. I belong to NPN, a Chicago-based parents site, and began posting and searching the boards there for a used modern rocker. I lucked out and found a Nurseryworks Sleepytime Rocker! It’s even in the color we want (see pic) and it’s brand new. For 1/2 off the original price it’s a steal! Score! We are supposed to pic it up this weekend. So unless the lady flakes, or we show up and it turns out they are recruiting for a sex ring, hopefully this rocker will be in my home by the end of the weekend! Yay!
