The Door

The outside of our bedroom door hasn’t been washed in years. Not only is it long overdue for a good cleaning, it needs a re-staining. But I can’t bring myself to do it. That’s because for more than 20 years, we kept track of our kids’ growth on that door.

Note the permanent black marker...Jamie's contribution on year.

Last night I added this:


Now another generation will have to go by before that door gets washed!

  1. Love it! We have the same on a door frame in our kitchen, but the kitchen is getting reno’d! So that part of the frame is getting taken out careful and put up somewhere else special in our house.

    My parents still have our wall of measurements too. What is funny, is that lots of our friends would mark themselves on the wall too!
