I sometimes get a bad rap for being the granny of the group.. "did you wash your hands?" " I need to get home its pretty late", "no its midnight, I cant go for coffee right now", "seriously who calls the house this late? its like 9:30!"
I suppose motherhood has made me even more granny like than before but I'm going to own that shit (an ecard taught me adding "shit" to the end of any sentence will bring out my inner gangsta and make me sound much younger - more on that later) and embrace it.
Where am I going with all this? When I was younger my parents had these knit / crochet things on the bottom of our kitchen chairs. I couldn't believe how lame this was and did a silent cheer the day my mom realized she needed to catch up with the times and removed them.
Chair socks? seriously?
Here I am today with wooden chairs and wooden floors and regardless of how clean the floors are the chairs always make a lovely streaky mess, especially if a small piece of fruit gets stuck underneath. The felt protectors always seem to fall off and I worry about huge scratches running along the floor. My first thought? the freakin chair sock. With my tail behind my legs I asked my mom if she could make me some.
Ive never been happier to let my inner granny shine!
And guess what? As I did a quick google search for other like minded people who have brought back the chair sock and discovered that I'm not a granny, just cool. There are alot of chair socks out there.. and some are pretty darn nifty. Check out this awesome design featured on apartment therapy, updated but still a chair sock!
