Growth Chart

I love a great growth chart.  When I was a girl, my parents had designated a piece of shelving in our laundry room as the growth chart.  The only problem was, that when it came time to move, that growth chart was connected to the home.  Most, might have left the shelving in tack, which happened to be a built in unit (meaning it was part of the home, not a mobile piece of furniture.)  But not my dad, he ripped that board right off the shelving, just like He-Man would do!!!
So my parents still have the growth chart, and we love it,
but the #1 rule here…..
Make or Purchase a growth chart that can move with you!!!!
(The kids might want to take it with them….)
(or you might move…Even if you think you are going to be in your home FOREVER….you never really know for sure!!)
Here are a few of my favorites that I found while searching the web.
If you see one that is vinyl, I suggest you attach it to an old door or a piece of 2×6′ lumber.
