    No.

    Dad 6’.
    Me 5’ 10”.

    Not bad considering my mom is 5’ 1”.

    I beat my dad, but I'm only 5'9. Pathetic.

    Funny, we were just talking about this at home. My 4 uncles on mother's side are all 6'3 - 6'7 and my 2 year old just came back from pediatrician and he's the size of a 4 year old, only two pounds shy of his 5 year old sister.

    Anybody have experience with height/size skipping a generation? Just in case my wife has had him on ice couple days a week now in case we have a Lindros.

    It was all those high-flying leg drops he landed from the top rope from his wrestling days.

    Same height as my father- 5'8".

    Which isnt so bad considering everyone in our immediate family is essentially shorter than that.

    My wife is 5'2 though and her family is all short too so our kids are likely screwed.
