Small but Mighty

Lisa Genatossio


After the age of three, Vanessa really started slowing down in growth. Soon her younger sister caught up to her and then grew taller than her. They were wearing the same size  clothes and for a while I was dressing them as if they were twins. Then Vanessa fell behind even further. I questioned  her pediatrician and told him that we were worried, and he told us she was just going to be small. She also began having headaches. First the pediatrician told us it was probably allergies, then that we were maybe giving her too much chocolate. He told us she was too young to know what a headache was, and that we could give her Tylenol if we thought she really needed it.
