Kristin: I'll admit it. I'm short and I'm vain. I grew up with a sister who clearly had gazelle blood in her. She's tall and lithe and has to duck to get through doorways. My knees are closer to my ankles than what should be expected of anyone who isn't 3. So, I compensate. With fancy, pretty expensive red-soled shoes. Show-offy? Probably. But I'll be damned if I'm gonna be in a pair of flip-flops when Daniel Craig shows up at my kids' school. It could happen. And as for the chasing part, let's just say I threaten better than Julie does. Stay close to Mummy, lambchop. Or else.
