Weekly Photo Challenge – Wall

134 door

a door frame at our old two flat



As usual, I had to skew the rules of this week’s photo challenge.  As you can see, the photograph is that of a door frame – not a wall.  In my mind, a door frame could be considered part of a wall, so… this is a wall.

This photo is actually one of several due to the fact I wanted to be able to see the details.  In case you are wondering, this is a quintessential growth chart.  It began in 2002 and was actually moved next door (in 2007) when our friend re-fabricated his kitchen.  I transferred the information from the piece of wood to the frame above and, of course, we added on…  I took this photo a few days before we moved in April, 2013.  (By the way, I was given the original door frame, which is still with us to this day.)

If you look very closely, you can see my name (mom) and when J and P passed me up!

    🙂 The doorframe is part of the wall so no penalty points! I think it was a great choice and love that they soared past you!! Great idea.

      thanks:) I was thinking about posting the whole series – there are 4 – but, this one brings the most – i remember the day i looked at them straight in the eyes and the day i began looking up at them….

        We have the same kind of door way at my grandfather’s house. My grandmother would always measure all of us grandchildren every summer. I think there’s about 30 different marks still visible from all of the 10 grandchildren. 🙂

    Must add that we have a similar scale on our bathroom wall. One that faithfully records my shrinking as the years mount up! 😦

      Now, now – i doubt this. This is one of four photos – one has Bill on the tippy top and one has Sydnee Pee somewhere in the middle. We kept track of everyone…

    Love this. This picture is so touching and so many of us moms can relate to our kids growing up and having to look up at them. Thanks for sharing this awesome photo.

      You are welcome and thank you for your lovely comment. Yes, the day i realized they were taller – it was an emotional day. I could not believe it and tried to figure out how? 🙂

        Your comment just brought a smile to my face… I understand… I have to look up to all of my children and can’t remember when they passed me up. Seems to happen overnight!

    Hey, it’s NEXT TO a wall…I can SEE the wall so that’s good enough for me:) LOL Now start singing, “that’s what friends are for…” 🙂 Have a great day. Supposed to get cold again next week and at night. 😦

    Really nice. And if you don’t start it, you can’t go back and catch up. 🙂 I have begun the shrinking thing, so my lines would start going back down. lol

    I have one identical on my kitchen doorframe! A great landmark of life. Definitely part of the wall.

    • 22. words4jp  |  March 17, 2015 at 6:32 pm

      It is awesome. I am so happy to have the original door frame. It is really cool. And old – the house was torn down a few years ago, so, the door frame is the only part of the house which still exists.
