The Tigling, who just turned 11 last October, is now officially taller than me.

I didn’t overtake my mum until I was 14.

She’s also taller than the Togster who turns 13 in May. They just take after different sides of the family – Mr Tog was nearly his current 6′ at age 12, while my brother was only round the 5’2″ at age 12 and is now 6’3″. Going by the Togster’s feet, I expect him to take after his noncle’s height more than my modest 5’4″ or my Dad’s average 5’9″.

It will be interesting to see just how tall my little Amazon ends up.
