    Mum: Yes I'm a couple of inches taller than her. One of my sisters is also taller than her and the other is the same height.

    Dad: No although my brother is the same height as he was.

    It's probably the norm, to be honest.

    Not taller than my dad (5,11"), either the same or an iota shorter than my mum and sister (5,7"). I may grow some more though, who knows :dontknow:

    Last time I checked I was within half an inch of my dad (I'm 5'9", or at least I was 2 or 3 years ago, I may be more like 5'10" now).
    I'm probably 4" taller than my mum.

    My (older) brother is probably an inch or two taller than me.

    My mum's about 5ft so anyone's taller than her. I'm pretty much the same height as my dad, so perhaps 5ft 7 or 8 inches?
