I am taller than DH - by about an inch. I rarely wear heels and if i do they can't be too high.
But I'm about 5'9 so I look pretty silly in high, high heels.
ETA - I actually wish i was shorter.
DD1 seems to take after her Dad's side of the family and will likely be on the shorter side. DD2 is off the charts on height, she will definitely be taller than me (poor thing)......but hopefully all the boys will be taller too, so it won't be so bad.
