My boy now wears shoes, lets us brush his teeth, and wriggles in our arms to get down and run around the grocery store. He is growing way to fast for my taste and I am pretty sure that my parents must have felt the same way about me. When I was growing up my parents marked off my height on the molding around one of the doors to the garage. I remember being so proud of all of the little pen marks and dates especially the ones that placed me taller than my Mother. It was special as a child to have a visual of how I was growing and I am excited about providing Weston the same thing.
We currently rent our home in Louisiana so when I began to look for ways to immortalize Weston's growth I knew it would need to be something a bit less permanent and more portable than a marked up doorway. I was excited when I found Petite Lemon, a company that produces brightly printed, personalized, quality, growth charts that would be able to be transported with me if and when my family moves. These growth charts are not the cheesy paper variety. These charts are printed on premium pure cotton canvas and the ink is high quality and eco-friendly. The results of using such fine quality supplies is a growth chart that can be considered a true keepsake for years to come.
The growth charts can be hung using the aluminum grommets in all four corners. The holes at the center of the grommets are rather large, this caused me to pause when I considered how I would go about hanging them. While they can be hung using traditional hammer and nail I wondered if there was a better way, especially for a renter such as myself. I emailed the company and then kindly sent me a link to some great examples of other hanging options. One of the options they recommended using 3M Command Hooks. I am not really sure why I didn't think of this myself especially since I have written in a previous post about how I used 3M products to adhere Weston's abacus over the changing table. Once I decided on my game plan and set out to Target to buy the Command Hooks wouldn't you know that they didn't have the ones I wanted? I decided that I would compromise and just use 3M Command Strips and forgo the use of the grommets altogether. While this route might not be quite as aesthetically pleasing as using the little hooks it allowed me to hang the chart quickly, easily, with very little measurement (other than the required 24 inches to the floor), and with NO wall damage.
