    Hey Guys;

    Well, I'm taller than both my parents (my mother's quite short anyway at 5'4) and my dad is 5'6.
    I'm 5'7

    Anyway, I just wondered if your taller, shorter or measure the same height as one or both of your parents. =)

    My mom's 5"7, my dad's 5"5. I'm 5"1. I imagine I'm like the female version of my dad's height, since short height is dominant so it wouldn't make sense for me to be shorter, and males are supposed to be taller (and my half sister who is his daughter is a similar height to me).

    not really - I mean, I'm technically taller than my father by such a tiny amount it's not really worth counting
    I'm more than half a head taller than my mother, though
