Nice way of keeping track, James.

Most people just mark the trim on a door as the child grows. The trouble with this is you loose the info if you ever have to (or when) you repaint. This way you can always move or take the information with you.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Thank you Bill.
Yes, her mark on the trim door is the reason I did this.
She took it upon herself to make a mark some how and showed it to me !!!

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

Neat idea, wished I had thought of that.

Maybe Jerry can contract with you for some Rules for inside measurements. (snicker, snicker)

Just kidding Jerry........
