My parents, known as Nana & Papa to their nine grandchildren, have an adorable shed-turned-playhouse in their backyard. Nearly ten years ago (when there were only five grandkids), we took a Sharpie and marked the height of each child on the playhouse walls.
You’ve probably never seen kids stand with such impeccable posture.
Everyone has fun seeing the results!
Each child is so unique in his or her growth rate, even among siblings. I am realizing, that when we measure up this coming summer, one — or two — of my boys will be taller than me. Yikes. How did that happen?
