Two caveats on my post Gaining from Monday. #1) I'm not proud that Molly wears a bikini, but that she has the courage to do so. At her age, I wouldn't have tried. #2) My father says I need to disclose that I was a cheerleader (very briefly) in junior high and in swing choir in high school, so I did perform in front of crowds. But performing alone made my stomach hurt, my face and neck to turn a blotchy red, and I had to fight back tears from stagefright.

That said, I'm devastated. My son is now 5'8-1/2" tall, and I am officially the second shortest person in my house, taller only than the 4-year-old.
