Now who are you calling shorty?

You know how fast children grow? Many a times we don't realize it coz we see them everyday. It usually takes someone who hasn't seen them for awhile to draw our attention to it.

Well, this morning I woke up and found one of mine almost my height. It took me by surprise coz tho I see her everyday, I didn't realize it. But this morning as I walked to get my bag from the table , she was standing right by it when I thought she looked kind of tall. I then told her to stand right next to me, and all I can say is we are either the same height or I am maybe still half an inch taller!! ( or so I would like to believe!)

I am really not ready to be overtaken. She is not supposed to be this tall so fast. I only got to my height when I was probably 16 or 17, so why is she this height so fast? Mentally I have not prepared myself to be shorter than her .... yet. You see, I am not ready to be "looking up" to her. And you know, it's really difficult to tell someone taller than you what to do, what more to scold that person!!

HELP!! I better go get some high heels and get back to wearing them. Only problem is that I would probably have to be wearing 6 inch heels very very soon!

Hahah, you don't have a choice dear. Generally, kids do surpass the parents in height. If there's any consolation, it's another kind of supremacy in having to dress down someone taller. :P

By the way, you look tall. Your gal must be growing real tall then, envious. :)

I know how you feel :) All three of my kiddos are going to grow taller than me, and people love to point it out too!

it's the sign of the times - children will not only outlive their parents, but will outgrow & outsmart them as well.

just have to accept it.
