I have three children. Two are very tall and have always been in the 95th percentile for height. And then there’s my youngest. So far, he’s “average” height. The other day he quietly told me his class lined up for pictures, from tallest to shortest. He said he was third among the boys.

The third shortest.

He was bummed.

I was bummed that he was bummed. Because it made me realize that I always pump up my tall children. “Be confident! Be proud of your height!”

But the message is actually the same to my youngest,¬†“Be confident! Be proud of your height!”

Trust me, his personality is big, big, big.

And I love him just the way he is. Regardless. We took a picture of our super tall and confident shadows. Because sometimes, we all need a boost in both.
