Growing Up in Photos: Thirteen First Days of School

Wonderful idea alert: to document the growth of her son, Reddit user dittidot faithfully snapped a photograph of him on his first day of school for thirteen years, from kindergarten through the end of high school. After he left for college, she lined up all the photographs for this awesome visualization showing him “growing up” (click here for a larger version).

    Funny that he wore the same shirt in grade 9 and 10, and appears to be the same shoes in grade 8 and 11?  Apparently his feet don’t grow..

    He used the same shirt for over a year (notice the faded black) and the same brand of shoes.

    I’m not usually one to harp on lame content, but didn’t everyone’s mom take a similar photo on the first day of school?

    But not everyone’s mom did a collage like this. I found it interesting, a documentation of the average middle class kid. He could be anyone.

    I’m so doing these corny things for my kids, I hope they appreciate it later on.

    Some moms don’t even know which school their kid goes to or which class they’re in. We’re not living in an episode of the Wonder Years unfortunately.

    My mom didn’t… I don’t think everyone’s mom takes a picture… I only have some school pictures and not even all of them because my mom thought they were to expensive.
