It used to be covered with dirty poetry

I'm not sure when he made the connection between the fridge and his art work.

I'm not sure when he made the connection between the fridge and his art work. I think it was in a book we read or something, but suddenly it became a "thing". From that moment on it has become not only a gallery, but also a height chart. We retain a bit of space at the top, wedding mementos and a photo or two. Every other surface within arms reach is his. I move the occasional magnet down, remove the old to make room for the new, and just smile when he says he's going to put something on the refrigerator.

Our refrigerator used to be the home of a magnetic words kit. My husband and I wrote little romantic poems and comments to each other there, but had to stop when our son got old enough to read. We thought we had until he got tall enough to see what was up there, but he got a chair and climbed up for a better view at quite an early age. Fortunately he didn't know what most of it meant yet, but that magnetic words kit has been languishing in a drawer ever since.
