When I was born, my Dad likes to say, I was small enough that he could hold me on his arm between his hand and elbow. Well, a number of years (we won’t say how many) have gone by, and that is no longer the case. Nowadays, he can hug me, but he certainly can’t pick me up – and definitely not on one arm! When you think about the way your children grow up over the years, having a record of the interim times – particularly the younger years – can help provide a much-loved and treasured visual demonstration of just how far your little one has come. Finding a personalized growth chart that you can use to track the inches as your child grows not only gives you a quantifiable account of their growth, but it lets your children feel accomplished and special as they grow up!
Here at Rosenberry Rooms, there are over a hundred options for personalized growth charts for your home and child. You can opt for animal-theme looks like the Sweet Bunny Growth Chart, the Pink Monkeying Around Growth Chart and the Gillespie Giraffe Growth Charts in both Pink and blue. Little boys will find the Vintage Sports Growth Chart to be a great way of connecting with their interests in sports and sports teams, while those who are interested in transportation will find the Trains, Planes and Trucks Growth Chart to be more inspirational. For girls, the Afternoon Gossip in Pink and Green Growth Chart makes use of bright colors to paint an image of your daughter’s growth over her childhood years.
Beyond those very creative pieces of art, there are some other options that stand out to me because they are definitely unique. One example is the Surf Board Growth Chart by ecotots which is Earth-friendly and can double as a coat rack when rotated! Another example is the Tree Growth Chart Fabric Wall Decal by Petit Collage. The benefits of this one? It is removable and reusable so it can travel from room to room or house to house if needed, while offering a truly whimsical and fun piece of visual art on the wall!
Aside from letting you keep track of how long it takes your child to achieve a certain height, what are the other reasons it’s nice to keep a growth chart for each of your children? The best part, as I see it, is that with a personalized growth chart you’re able to take your measurements with you wherever you go. When I was young, my mom had my brother, sister and I stand in front of a door frame to chart our growth; this was all well and good until we moved to a new house, when I was about twelve. My sister was still young enough that her growth chart could start over again in the new place, but for my brother and I, those dramatic leaps in height that make up so much of a child’s early years were forever lost.
Don’t let the same thing happen to your child – pick out a personalized growth chart that will be a stylish and special reminder treasured for many years!
