Now I'm not a mathematician or heightologist but at first blush you'd seem about the same height as your dad.
Best post ever.

Me: 5'8
Dad: 5'8 half
Mum 5'4

My mum and especially my dad might have been much taller though, they were poor as kids and didn't get milk or meat (my dad didn't even get enough food).

See, this is why I'm somewhat confused. It often seems like the height of your parents has little to do with how tall you'll be, and is more (probably?) more to do with the height of your grandparents or further ancestors.

@Bethy11 - that's quite interesting. I don't know many girls who are as tall as their dad (when they're dad is 5'10+). Are any of your grandparents tall?
Nope , tallest is my dads dad at 5ft 7, one of my nans is 5ft 2.

I'm 6ft, my mum is 5'7 and Dad is 5'9. I was 5'8 like a year ago so I kinda had a rapid growth spurt. First year of sixth form :P

My brothers are 23 and 24 and are 5'11 each.

Is it just me or does TSR seem to have an abnormal amount of giant females, I'm always reading loads of them saying they are 6 foot even though IRL I think I've only seen about 3 genuine 6 foot women :rofl:

Lol really? Because everywhere I go I always manage to find women who are taller than me! (Or the same height)
