My granddad gave both of the babies a rockin' chair when they were born. In the summertime they stay outside and in the wintertime they come inside. They love rockin', whether its in their momma's arms to go to sleep at night or whether its on their own for their own entertainment.
Having a rockin' chair of your own is a staple in the South. (And yes, we do leave the g off the end when we pronounce it).
