A Measure of Humor
I think she may have gotten the idea from an old movie that we watched recently on TCM called "I Remember Mama", but in any case, Katie has started keeping a record of her growth. She has an area in the kitchen where she goes and stands with her nose to the wall. Then she slides her right index finger "straight" across from the top of her head to a point on the wall, and she markes that point with a push pin. She checks her growth almost every day, to be sure that she doesn't miss anything. Yesterday, after measuring herself, she stood for a long moment looking at the new position of the push pin with a very satisfied smile on her face. "Almost one sillimeter," she said emphatically, and I thought to myself, "No Sweetheart; it's exactly one sillimeter."
