No preference but how short is too short? No preference with skin (Somali shades) color, too. I want her to have curves, in shape and good looking. I would like my sons to be as tall as me (6'6'' in my case), or taller. Usually a tall woman would have taller kids. Cut off for me is 5'5'' to 6'. The taller she is, the less curvaceous she becomes.
