Wishes Do Come True

Ernest always wanted to be taller than his big brother, so he liked to stand on tall things.

Hop in the Tardis and jump 10 years into the future.

Ernest's measurements are on the left, Frank's in the center.    The 6 on the right is the elusive 6-foot benchmark.

(December 2012)

Frank, 5'11"
Ernest, 6' ¾"  He got his wish. He's taller than his brother.

Ernest was filling out a form last weekend and asked me how tall he was. Just put 6'1", I said. You'll hit it in no time.

Do they get that height from you? Dang, that's tall.

Men love to hit that 6' mark, don't they?

that's great. for frank? not so much.

my daughter has been routinely telling everyone she is 5'7" - the big joke she is my only daughter taller than me. but at the doc office the other day? 5'6 and 1/4 inch. Um, not much taller than mom after all. Eh, wise girl?
