Throughout my school life I was always know as the shortest in the class. Even when I got older and wasn't any longer the tag stuck. In my family growing up I was the shortest but eldest child. Despite this I was constantly told to stop "elephant-ing around". Now as an adult at 5ft 2 I have a husband who is 6ft 6. My 4 year old is just above average and my 2 year old who was 56cm at birth has been off the height charts ever since. I figure I have till he's about 10 till they're all taller than me. Strangely, I always imagine I have very very long legs.
