Petite People Unite!

Check this out. Oh yes, my petite friends. We are back in business. We may be small but we are fierce! Do not discount us because we are tiny as we have the persistance and the voices to make this happen.

I have noticed that petite sections have slowly been reduced in stores. Last time I checked, there were still plenty of petite women out there. Maybe we just take care of our clothes better than our taller brethren do allowing us to cut down on the number of clothes we purchase. Or maybe my generation is a generation of giants.

I am petiteonly in that i am a rather shorter than average woman.I am not petite has in the weight though.I am SHORT 4'10 to be exact and i mean exact has i had to have a doctors check up.So i was weighed and had the height done first.I said to the doctor do i have to take my trainners off only to be told that wouldnt make much difference anyway.I stood on the machine and it did both weight and height.Has i got off he told me Oh i thought you were taller he said i was 4'10 i was abit surprised has i had always thought to be 4'11.The doctor mentioned being my age i was to be losing some height and he checked his records to tell me i had only lost 1/2 an inch.I said to me that was alot and he laughed.Now i dont mind being this height has i find it gets easier has we get older but i was more shocked being the oldest out of 6 kids.Now there was me 4'10 then the rest are all 2 yers difference the other siblings are between 5'4 and 5'9 with my parents being 5'9 as well.My brother was the tallest he was 6'2.I am exactly the same height has my grandad who was in the war and had to overcome alot.My nan is 5'9 he used to tell me stories about always wanting a tall woman and was surprised when they met.She was just under 1 foot taller that was barefooted wearing heels she is even taller.I ended up marrying a guy tall has well he was 6'2 but it didnt bother him so much as me.My family used to laugh when i was with him but we still overcame the height thing.I must say he comes in very handy which is where i get my sense of humour from my grandad has he tells everyone the same thing that my nan comes in handy for things as well.

This seems funny has we seem to be in the same boat heightwise that is not weightwise.I am alittle taller not by much 4'11.I would never undermine anyone over height has it is each others preference.I come for a tall family mum 5'10 dad 5'11 and my younger sister 5'11 exactly the same has my dad.I apparently take after my grandmother she was 5'0 when younger and at the last check she was the same has me she is shrinking abit.My grandad was rather taller than my nan.No one could fathom has to why i was so short i was checked at the doctors when a young kid.Only to be told that if someone was short in the family that is why.So i never had any help with getting taller.The worst thing is that my sister is actually 5 years younger than me and 1 foot taller to make matters worst she loves wearing heels and i dont so if we go out she is over a foot taller.No one believes i am the older of us and i am always asked my age even by kids always have always will be i suppose it is just one of them things.My friends while being at school was always taller possibly because i lived with tall people.My best friend was 5'9 and the rest was between 5'2 and 5'10.The shortest was Gemma and she used to always say that it was nice being around me when going out has she didnt feel short.I didne mind has it was the truth we couldnt hide it so we had to deal with it.
