I’m terrible about knowing my kids’ vital stats. When someone remarks that one of my girls seems to have grown taller, I just smile and hope he doesn’t ask me her actual height. The problem is, I haven’t been keeping track – somehow I never started that tradition of lining my girls up against a doorway and getting out the old #2 pencil.
The clever Picture Me Growth Chart available at the San Francisco MOMA gift shop just might help me with my statistical issues. The simple but innovative design features a ruler on the right side so you can measure your kid’s growth spurts, alongside a series of photo pockets which lets you slip in snapshots to honor each of twenty milestones. Frankly, wouldn’t you rather look at pictures of your growing kids than an illustrated giraffe?Besides, you won’t end up with those pencil marks all over your fine woodwork. – Nancy
