On a whim, I stopped at the antique store next to Kulia’s preschool.
I had Leina with me and we had some time to kill before pick up so I wandered in. Leina is finally trust-worthy surrounded by knick knacks and breakable objects d’art. Kulia…..not so much. So the fact that it was just the two of us tipped my hand and convinced me to peek in. As we wandered around looking at all the stuff, we stumbled upon a child-sized roll top desk. Leina was in heaven! Not only did it fit her to a T, but it boasted a whole row of little nooks and crannies just waiting to be filled. She sat herself down, declared herself in love, and refused to budge. Unbeknownst to Leina, my mom had an adult sized roll top desk that I loved as a kid. Just like my daughter, I loved poking through all those little drawers and shelves. I adored being able to roll down the top and hide everything away from prying eyes. So when Leina found this little desk, I just could not say no. It even came with a little wooden swivel chair.
We somehow managed to wedge it into the trunk of the car and Leina has spend a very happy afternoon setting it up just right. I think it’s a very good find myself!
