When our children were younger, I couldn't decide between a growth chart to hang on the wall or the typical pencil marks on the wall. Neither seemed to be a right fit for us. So, I designed and painted our own on a narrow wall just outside the family room.
As the entire design was meant to be uncomplicated, the main line is the stem of a simple five petal flower.
The middle and bottom sections have leaves and large numbers mark off each foot.
Using a separate color paint marker for each child created a code of sorts to track each child's individual growth throughout the years. Typically, I mark growth once a year during the summer. These pictures were taken prior to permanently recording this year's growth.
