   when
    we
   have
     to
   leave
   your
  height
  chart
    on
   the
  door
  jamb

    So poignant! I know one family who took theirs with them. Love this small poem.

    This hits home….so final. We have our pencil scratches on the wall, here. This form is truly an extension of content. Beautifully penned.

    So meaningful. Our charts of heights remain some 40 years later and our grandchildren compare theirs with their parents!
