I would like to replace The Couch. To me it's worn out, the cushions are all squished and it has it's share of spots that won't come out. When I posed the idea of media chairs to the girls, they responded with a resounding, "Oh, no, mom! Don't get rid of The Couch!"
I sent a text to my older daughter, Lindsey, and friends why they love The Couch.
Lindsey: Mom, I'm not sure you could capture the essence of The Couch in just words.
Katie: It's so much more than a couch.
Lindsey: It doubles as a bed, a couch and a living area.
Me: It's a comfortable, safe place to share your hopes, dreams and fears with your friends?
Lindsey: That's deep.
Katie: You can build forts with it!
Emily: Because it symbolizes friendship, rainbows and hugs.
Lindsey: BOOM. Nailed it.
