My boyfriend and my dad would always say it's cuz i'm "little" (i'm 5'2) but that gets tiring. It may be cute to them but it's disappointing to me.
I know it's a small thing, but it made me feel sooo good and like i could do it on my own without having anyone help me or without having to take a million rests in between.
You go girl. And you know what, you're dad and your BF are dead wrong. I'm also 5'-2", and the oldest of 3 farm raised kids. Out of necessity my folks worked me like a man. Believe me you can be tiny and dainty and still built like a field stone privy.
