    I’m 5’9”.  Mom is 5’6′.  Dad is 6’0.  Looks like I’m right in the middle.

    I was the same height as my mom (5’6″) but she has started shrinking in the last few years (no kidding!), so now I’m almost two inches taller than her.  She’s in her 70s, and height shrinkage is one of the many joys of aging Undecided

    My mom is about.. 5’5″ I think..  My dad is about 5’8″ to 5’9″ish..  And somehow I am 5’10” and my brother is a little taller than me too..  Funny how that works??  My grandparents weren’t tall either..

    I’m the shortest one in the family. Every other woman averages 5’6″ to 5’8″ and I’m barely 5’4″.

    My mom is 5’7″ and I’m 5’4″!  I don’t think it’s weird…  My sister is the same height as me too.

    my mom is 5’4 and I am 5’9. she is quite a bit shorter! the funny thing is she is the “tall” one in her family all of her siblings are way shorter…and she always told me that I would probably never be taller than her since she was the tallest female in the family…WRONG! way wrong…lol

    My mom and I are just about the same height. I may be half an inch taller, but we both claim to be 5’3″.

    My mom is about 5’2..my dad is about 5’7…I have no idea how I turned out being almost 5’11. No one in my family is tall at all. Maybe the milkman stories are true!!

    I was always bitter about this too! My mom was 5’4″ (now she’s an inch shorter), my dad is 6′, and I’m 5’1″ in shoes.  Dammit. 

    I tease my mom that it’s her fault for only breastfeeding me for a month, but in reality it’s that her parents were tiny, and I take after them, especially my grandmother.
