Measure by Measure
Too-short sleeves and ankle grazing pants are an inevitable part of a child’s wardrobe. Who can keep up with growth spurts?
You may not buy them a new outfit every time they sprout an inch, but you can keep track of their vertical takeoff with a growth chart by famed illustrator Eric Carle. With animal drawings and bright colours, the Up, Up I Go Growth Chart ($18, pictured) will have your little one standing tall. Measuring up to 6 feet, the whole family can mark their height on the chart—and it sure beats ruining your eggshell walls with pesky pencil marks.
Just try not to cry when they outgrow you.
