And nursery glider…take two!

So, after all of my fretting and griping about the glider, and after finally making the decision to pull the trigger on one, I came down with a serious case of Buyer’s Pre-remorse. I can’t say it was a full-fledged case of Buyer’s Remorse because I didn’t have the actual product in front of me to rue. But I was pretty sure I would be full of rue (rueful, if you will) when the glider arrived on my doorstep. As I was swimming in the flood of these feelings, I got an email from Hayneedle (the company through which I bought said glider) apologizing and informing me delivery of my purchase was going to be delayed until January 13. With the baby due in March, and the glider ordered at the end of December, I realize waiting until mid-January could hardly be called an inconvenience, but I took it as a sign (read: opportunity) to cancel my order and begin my search anew. I emailed Hayneedle to ask if the order could still be canceled and I was  surprised to receive a reply from a real human being almost immediately. Real Human Being told me she would check with the vendor and get back to me in two days’ time. Well, the very next day there was an email from Hayneedle telling me my order had been successfully canceled! How awesome, I thought. What a great company, I exclaimed. And now I get to search for the perfect glider all over again, I mused.

Shoot. Now I *get* to search for the perfect glider all over again. Oops.

    So excited for communication with Real Human Being! Even more excited you were able to cancel the order and glide in something that will not cause any remorse, buyer’s or otherwise! Let’s get you and baby gliding in something smile-inducing for all parties!

    I have Dorothy’s hardrock maple rocker available. For the most part it is in excellent shape and and with cushions added would be an excellent baby rocker; HOWEVER, I have to admit that it does have some work needed and that would be the tips of the actual rockers which Maddie found irresistible when she was a puppy. Of course those chew marks do give it a kind of character you just can’t get at your everyday average furniture store. At any rate with a little work it would be a great rocker and yours if you want it.

    Oh Jane! That is so sweet. I may take you up on that… Thinking of having Grandma’s rocker is making me tear up right now…but I admit that I’m being a bit anal about the aesthetics of the whole nursery ‘room’ right now, which is why I went ahead and canceled what I had already ordered. We’re headed out today to look around and if we don’t find anything, I think I know what I’m going to order…But I’m going to think long and hard about this extra-sweet Grandma rocker offer. And I have to say, the Maddie chew part is actually a selling point for me 🙂
