5'10" may not seem exceptionally tall, but I have really long arms, fingers, and toes, and always have trouble buying things that fit. I'm about 50, and feel awfully tall for a woman of my generation.
How Tall is Your Family?
As of last year I became the shortest person in my family. Husband is 6'2", DS17 is 6'1", and DS14 is 6'1". Doc guesses our 14yo son will end up between 6'6" and 6'8". He has no facial hair and hasn't hit his growth spurt yet.
