Some serious growth...

With R&R almost here, I wanted to see how much the girls had grown in the almost 8 months since Dad left. You'd think I put fertilizer in their shoes! Big Sis has grown 2-1/2 inches and L'il Sis has grown by 2-3/4 inches. This has got to stop! At this rate, they'll tower over me by the time they are 12!

I must have seriously weak genes.

I know exactly how you feel. I am 5'2 1/2 and my eldest daughter (age 15) is already 5'7 and 2nd daughter (age 15) is 5'5. Third daughter is 5' but the doctor expects her to shoot up in height soon although she will probably be the shortest of the four girls, she will still top me.

And why is it that they seem to sprout whenever the husband gets deployed?

That height gene is a kicker. This should make you feel better, or maybe not. I've been this tall since 9th grade. I shot up like well-watered bamboo, but I did eventually stop.

Wow! You'd better make sure they have the "fear of Mom" in them before they are big enough to take you. :)

It's all to save Daddy's back! All the less he'll have to bend to pick them up! If tall is soooo dominant (as it appears to be) why are there still short people??? I'm being silly, but really, I've not seen many families where short wins out!

Believe it or not....Mr. Mayhem is almost 6'4....but his sister is only 4'11! Now...how in the world does that fit in the genepool?

It's always amazing to see how much they have grown. Great idea to measure that while he is gone. I usually don't think of things like that. Off to add it to my list of things to do!
