How Tall Will Your Child Be?

September 23, 2008

Think your kids are growing at an alarming rate?

Oprah’s got a 13-year old who’s 7 foot 3 coming on her show… She’s hooking him up Shaq’s hand me downs.  His mom is kicking out 150 bucks for a pair of jeans and $800 for special orthopedic shoes.

So — how tall will your child be?

Here’s the formula from

To calculate your son’s genetic potential, take Mom’s height plus 5 inches and add Dad’s height. Now average the two. For example, if Dad is 5′ 10″ and Mom is 5′ 3″ you would take 5′ 10″ and 5′ 3″ plus 5″ (or 5′ 8″) and divide that answer by two. The average of 5′ 10″ and 5′ 8″ is 5′ 9″. That is your son’s genetic potential.


    (Mom’s height + 5 inches) + Dad’s height = Son’s genetic growth potential

To calculate your daughter’s genetic potential, take Dad’s height minus 5 inches and add Mom’s height. Now average the two. For example, if Dad is 6′ and Mom is 5′ 2″ you would take 6′ minus 5″ (or 5′ 7″) plus 5′ 2″ and divide that answer in half. The average of 5′ 7″ and 5′ 2″ is 5′ 4½ inches. This would be your daughter’s genetic potential.


    (Dad’s height – 5 inches) + Mom’s height = Daughter’s genetic growth potential

If the math is tripping you up in feet and inches, these calculations may be easier if you convert all the heights to inches first.


Also — Nancy and others called to say you can take your child’s height at 2 years old and double it… That will give you their full grown height.

Win a Microsoft ZUNE!

September 22, 2008

I love the ZUNE!  I want one!  Cause it’s wireless and does everything (MP3s, Videos, Pictures!)  And — it has FM radio!

I talked with Katy Asher from Microsoft this week about the latest Zune feature… You can listen to your favorite station (WAJK, of course) and when you hear a song you like, you can click your Zune and tell it to download that song (for a fee, of course!)  How many times have you been listening to a song and thought… Wow!  I really like that one, and you forget about it… and then can’t remember what song it was… Zune totally fixes this problem.

So — how can you win a Free 8gig Zune this week?  Click here to sign up! Now — I know there are more people reading this blog than those in the Illinois Valley area… Keep in mind, if you sign up and win… You’ll have to pick it up at the WAJK studios in Oglesby, Illinois.
