Inch Your Body

Kaedyn called out to me:" Come here, Nana, and let me inch your body."

"WHAT?!" I wondered.

I came around the corner to see her holding a tape measure.

"Stand here against the door frame and I will inch you and see how much you've grown," she said.

Tomorrow is my birthday, so she thinks I should have grown taller! (Wider maybe?)

Me...sixty years ago.
I still have the same hair-do!
