Not just you, height comments can bother me. I’m 5’ 1” and my husband is 6’ 4”. We only have boys and they are taking after me in the height department. All the time I get “Oh, there’s still time for them to catch up to dad” comments. Like being taller is better obviously. 😒 My husband and I don’t care. They’ll be whatever height they’ll be, why make a thing of it.
Jill’s comment didn’t bother me, it was more like statistical information. It’s when people imply not so subtly that being tall is preferable and I get irritated.
