Tallest girl in my family but not the tallest. I have a brother who is 7ft with a wife who is 4'11". I went thru the usual stage of hating being tall, the no finding pants long enough for me or if I found them to fit then they were 4-5 in too short. I guess my Father knew I was going to be tall because at 6 yrs old I was made to walk with encyclopedias on my head so I would always stand up straight. Well it worked and I am instilling the same habits to my grandchildren as my oldest granddaughter is already 5'7 at 9 yrs old. My children were tall as well my son is 6'3 1/2, my oldest daughter is 6'1 and my youngest daughter is our midget standing ONLY at a staggering 5'11....LOL
But as I matured so did the advantages of being taller, the no help in stores to reaching the top shelves, the part where you could hide things up high because no one could see it but you. But as with everything in life as a child I put up with the name calling and I'm sure ever tall person at one time in their "tall" life has either been called Big Bird, Jolly Green Giant, Too Tall or better yet that all too famous question of "How's the Weather up there". DUH...
But as for me I am happy, not so health but full of energy and always looking for a challenge.
