Although all of my children have always lived in the same house, I have never started one of those door jam growth charts. Well, not kept one going anyway.
A few years back in a family home evening lesson with a couple other families, we made one on a 2x4 but we don't record the measurements very timely. Its become a little obsolete. But I love this idea from Real Simple. It gives life to the growth charts and spurs memories long forgotten. I think it will be great to make one for each of my children and maybe even find a way to incorporate pictures of them wearing the shoes. Though really I'm not sold on that. I just love the shoes.
