Posted on April 6th, 2017 by Uncategorized

My mom can’t be the only one to have us kids stand up against the wall so she could mark how tall we had gotten every so many months? In fact, I know she can’t be because my grandma still does it will all of her still-growing grandchildren to this day! (Though, thanks to my two taller-than-six-foot cousins she’s had to drag over a step stool so she can accurately measure them. ­čśë ) Almost every month she’ll have each grandchild┬ástand up against the door frame of her pantry and pull out the trusted Sharpie!

This Pottery Barn “knock off” by 517Creations is SO cute. And it’s relatively easy with minimal supplies needed as well! Head here to check it out.
