    A Little Taller

    I'm actually 5'2. Not the tallest and not the smallest. I think 5'4 is average though. So I am small. Got it from my mother's side, shes 5'0  but my dad was 6'2. Go figure! : / Just didn't luck out I guess. :)

    I'm just 5'0 ft. tall,

    and was always the shortest Indian girl growing up (85% were white kids in my neighborhood, just a few African American,Asian and Indian kids ). I was once told by this guy in high school that I would be " very hot" if only I was just taller, that comment stuck with me all...

    Yes, I am. Luckily my husband is 6' so he can reach the things that I can not. I'm actually tall for the women in my family who are all under 5'. The government says any child under 4'9" should be secured in a child seat so I'll have to get one for my mother when she drives!!!

    Still Growing...

    So I'm between 5'3 and 5'4. It's a bit short for my age. And I don't like it, I'm not asking to be the tallest in class, but also I don't like being the shortest in class. Not to mention the teasing. But the good thing is.. I'm still growing, so I hope I'll be at a normal height...

    I have never minded being short. It's one thing about me that I've always been pretty content with. Until, of course, I require something from somewhere up high. Then it can be a bit troublesome. But there are always taller folk about to lend a hand.

    And Like It :)

    I'm 5 feet 3 and I feel comfortable with it. It has many advantages, including wearing high heels and not being afraid to be the tallest in the room :))) There's always someone around to ask for help if I need something from the top shelf etc. so I don't feel like I'm missing out...

    I have been exactly five feet tall since my junior year in high school.  I have given up on that last growth spurt.  I am vertically challenged as my 6'5" Hubby likes to put it.  They use to call me "little" and "tiny" in school.  Now that I am a woman they...
