Am i a bad mom...help me guess length and weight

daughter- six
has this school thing
she is student of week next week
has to make a poster, photos etc

one thing is to write down length and weight at birth
i do not know this (hence the bad mom part)
when we left her father i must not have packed the baby book with the record
hospital records closed on weekend- not like they would even give this info out without some paperwork

so, i am going to guess
hope daughter does not memorize this info

she was either 6 pounds 3 ozs or 2 ozs
and no idea on length
i am going to go with 18.5 inches

how does that sound?

  • I would go with the smaller measurement guesses since she was early.

  • It sounds great.

    When DD was set to graduate high school, her teachers thought it a great idea to have each kid bring in a baby photo of themselves for a before and after. We explained that there had been a house fire about 2 years before and we did not have one. Talk about being told we are bad parents.
    We acquired someone else's baby picture and turned it in at the last moment.

    Friendly tip: I you keep saying that you are a bad mom , you are going to start to believe it.

  • does 18.5 inches sound in the range?
    had to look on internet, this is average length for baby born at 6 pounds
