The Toddler is tall. Very tall. Especially when compared to all of the other members of the MoC clan. (In fact, my friends suggest that I like going to Asia because it's the only place in the world where I can look most people in the eye).

TT's height creates challenges that we have not had to deal with with our other kids. To wit, yesterday morning, MHW went upstairs for two minutes to get clothes for TT. When she came downstairs, TT was eating chocolate that she had found in one of the kitchen cupboards. None of our other kids could have reached this drawer at the age of 26 months.

As a result, we have emptied many of our kitchen cupboards and jammed everything into the few that are above the reach of TT.

I am looking forward to the time when I will have an eight-year-old daughter who is taller than I.

    Is you MHW taller than you? If not then her growth may level off at a certain age and she might not be taller than you.

    You must be new here...

    The Toddler is not our biological child. That's the whole point. Our kids have all been small (not surprising in light of their vertically challenged parents (MHW is also very small)). The joke is that TT comes from much taller stock and is likely to oyutgrow all of us.
