The Birth of a Desk Jockey

Grace Poses with Her New Desk and Chair

Some time ago Yuko saw a desk and chair set for toddlers in a magazine and expressed an opinion that perhaps it would be the right sort of thing to get for Grace. I was a little sceptical about such a purchase, but Grandpa Elliot stepped in and made a similar set for Grace out of cedar wood.

Of course, when these photos were taken, Grace was only nine months old. Now she is ten months old and has moved on from reading newspapers to calculus and Latin. At least, that is what I assume she uses her desk for while I am away at work during the day.
