Big boy?

How many have boys who are very large for their age? I don't mean over weight but tall. My son is almost four foot and built like a line backer and he is turning five this October. I am no longer shopping in the toddler section and now in the big boy department. He is shopping next to six year olds.

Ok get this. I am five foot one inch and his father is five foot nine inches. My family is all on the short side as well. My son decided to be one of the only grandkids that wanted to take after his great great grandfather scarberry who was full blooded native. So he is taller than ALL of his cousins.

 I have this going on with my girls they are tall.  I have people tell me they think they are tall.It can be hard to find clothes that fits them.  Like it will fit but the legs are to short.

Same here. It is hard to find anything that won't fit like capris on him. And I always have to get a larger size shirt so it fits his shoulder and goes over his head.

 I know it can be so frustrating.  You want them to look good in their clothes and for stuff to fit right.  My girls have no behinds either.  I also have a problem with their jeans wanting to slide down.  I do use belts and buy jeans with the tightener on the inside.  I am forever telling them to pull their pants up.

 That is a nice thing about Penney's though they have the plus sizes in kids.

Yep! I do. All of my kids are tall though. My 12 year old is already taller then me and I am 5'9". My 3 year old looks like the 5-6 year olds. LOL! Everybody is always amazed that he is so tall for 3 years old. :)
