my husband is 6'3. our 24 month old is 35 inches, considered "tall" for her age.
i always say "she's gonna be tall like her daddy" and my mother in law says "yea or she could get it from your aunt"
well, first of all i would think she'd get her dad's genetic traits before she'd get MY aunt's. and second, my aunt is actually my mother's half-sister. my aunt gets the tall gene from her dad, who was my mother's stepfather. my grandma is of average height like my mom and me. but my mil argues that "the genes are still there" really where? i do not share any blood with my aunt other than from my grandma. and like i said, she's not super tall.
so who is correct here? it irks me that this is even an argument. she should just accept that she got the damn tall gene from her SON. makes me wonder if she questions paternity or something!
You are, and your mother in law sounds like mine - she talks out of her butt all the time, but of course, she has to be right. LOL Next time, agree with her and see if she still contradicts you, mine would.
