Groundhog Day Family Tradition
One of my co-workers told me that she celebrated Groundhog Day by measuring her growing boys. Have a designated day, the same day every year to measure how much your kids have grown. Each year is exactly a year to the date since you last measured their height. I loved that idea so my family adopted that idea.
I know that Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow today so there was much sadness about more winter weather to come. Living in Southern California means we are lucky to get some winter-like weather. I don't think Punxsutawney Phil predictions pertain to us. We actually would like a couple more weeks of cooler weather.
We measured our kids late tonight and it is always fun to see how much they have grown. They also like to compare each other's growth at the same ages. They definitely grow differently and have grown taller than their mom.
Happy (Late) Groundhog Day!
