When I was a kid, grownups would ask, “What do you want to be when you’re older?” The other kids would say things like “astronaut” or “firefighter” but I’d always say, “tall”, which would make people laugh, although I didn’t understand why. (Oh wait, now I get it…)

Anyways, I never got my wish, but my baby just got measured at the pediatricians and he’s in the 75th percentile for height! Ah, it warms my heart that he towers over three quarters of his peers. Hopefully, he’ll have more interesting aspirations than I did.
