For the record, NOBODY should need to justify their height. Even if all the above were false you should be comfortable in your own body. You dont need a handbook of facts to make you feel better about yourself.
Haha a long time ago (when she was in highschool) my mom said she'd have a party when she got to 5 feet. She still hasn't had that party XD. My dad's a foot taller than her!
I'm only 5' .5" but I agree...short is fun sized. I used to be one of the fastest people in school (now the people with longer legs can hit me in the face with their elbows :( ). My 9 y/o sister is only around 45 pounds-as much as a five y/o! If I hug her I can completely wrap my arms around her and touch my shoulders.
And then I know someone in 8th grade who's either 5' 11" or 6' (and she's a girl)
