“I’m as big as”

by LifeLoveLaura on March 20, 2014

As soon as Little T was born I was desperate to find a height chart but being as picky as I am, it proved quite difficult. I never go for the first thing I see and sometimes I even annoy myself with this trait! Ideally I wanted one of the beautiful oak giant ruler style┬ácharts but we couldn’t justify spending that much money on a height chart. On my searches I found some lovely wall sticker types but if we ever move house, which we will have to when we have another baby, we wouldn’t be able to take it with us in one piece!

I then came across the “I’m as big as” height chart on Not on the High Street and I didn’t look any further. It’s fab and brings some fun into measuring Little T as he grows. On Tuesday we finally put the height chart up in mine and Big T’s bedroom. We didn’t want to put it in Little T’s room as he’ll no doubt pull it down or draw all over it when playing in his own bedroom. Saying that, he does also play in our room and he’s a little bit like a Tasmanian devil at the moment so I won’t hold my breath at it not getting destroyed!

Big T and I measured ourselves first to show Little T what to do. It turned out I was as tall as Kylie! If only I had her backside…

Big T wanted to be as tall as Tutankhamun, but after a couple of goes to double check, I measured him one cm below – as tall as a supermodel. He didn’t like this!

Little T copied us straight away and stood very still for us to take his height, bless him. I measured a couple of times just to make sure I got it right as I wanted to copy it into his little red book too. I haven’t measured his height since his 1st birthday so it’s been a while but it’s always good to see how our little ones are progressing.

Little T was as big as an Arctic wolf! He had a go at measuring himself too but didn’t quite get it accurately. He did try!

Pros of the “I’m as big as” height chart:

  • It makes measuring our little ones loads more fun than the usual height charts.
  • It has the novelty measurement as well as measuring in cm.
  • It has lots of room for writing down your measurements and the date, to keep track of your little ones growth.
  • It is removable to can be taken with you if you move house or bedrooms.

Cons of the “I’m as big as” height chart:

  • It is very big and quite difficult to stick up straight when you’re only as tall as Kylie! (Big T had to put it up for me)
  • It would be handy if it came with its own sticky pads or something rather than having to use tape.

Over all I love this height chart, I’m always up for a novelty. The measurements are actually quite informative too, I never knew a kimono dragon was so big!

*Please note: I was not paid to write this post, I bought the height chart myself. I purchased the chart from Not on the High Street but it is also available from lots of other retailers.*
