I'm 5'2". That 2" is very important to me. Although I heard you start to shrink as you get older so I might be only 5' tall by now. My daughter is exactly 5' and 1/2" tall and she won't let you forget about that 1/2 inch. Can you see over the steering wheel without a pillow????

No doubt! You always have the option of coloring it! He'll have to join the Hair Club for Men! Remind him of that!

I take it you have a tall father??? Some of the worst things are being asked how it feels living your life standing in a hole and being patted on the head, I hate that Also, no matter how old you get you are going to be refered to as "cute". I don't care if your drop dead gorgeous, your always going to "cute" becaise your short. Also why is it that no matter what shape a blondes hair is in it always looks good?

Wrong.

Boys do not ask you to dance when you are in middle school.

My first husband was 5' 6". I was about 5' 7" when we met. I've since grown...Anyway, I couldn't wear high heels for 10 years!

I hated being tall.

And yes, my Dad is tall. Or at least he was. He has now shrunk.

Oh yes i can see over the steering wheel. we just got the New Tundra and i love that truck. It sits way up high. I can't even see the hood that's how great it is and the steering wheel is awesome too. It adjusts up, down and swivels around in a circle too so i can adjust it to the sides even. Though my seat is so close, i try to keep them as far back as i can or i'll have broken knees should i ever get hit head on.

My daughter on the other hand got the real short end of the stick. I have to give her a shot every day of growth hormone because she has a under developed gland that hasn't produced the growth hormone since birth so she'll be lucky to make it to 5'. Right now she's 4'7" and we're crossing our fingers she makes it a bit more to at least 5'.

Oh, Danielle, that is just awful. At least she's 4' 7" and you have her. I bet she is a great joy to you! I bet she is!

Oh that's too bad. Tell her not to feel bad though. We have a buyer at work who is only 4'8" and she's perfectly healthy. Wish her the best for me

Well fortuneately my daughter doesn't even know how short she is compared to others because she's blind and cannot see a thing. She has such a happy attitude all the time. She's the one people at school go to (teachers and all) when they are having a bad day just to get one of her hugs she loves to give.

We need to change this topic to

The effect of moving to TN is short people live here. haha.
