No. I have had people assume DS is a lot younger than he is based on his size but I give his correct age. He's going to be 6 in August and only weighs 31lbs. It makes him mad when people ask if he's 3 or 4, lol.

No, I wouldn't be able to pull it off. Even though DS is small, most people assume he's older than he is because of how well-spoken he is. Like my dad says, most kids his age sound like they have a mouth full of marbles, lol.

No. Though they all look a little young for their ages...dd can still pass for 12 and ds' can pass for 7 and 10 (they are 10, 12 and 14).

Nope.

If we had to lie and cheat, we couldn't afford it in the first place.

That's not an example we set for our kids.

No, but my parents did.. I've always looked younger than my age. I remember boarding a plane with my mom and being carried on. I was told not to talk until the plane moved. I was maybe 3-4 but I think I was being passed off as 2 or under.

When my brother and I were in our teens we played under 12 to get a discount at the movies with our dad.

Yup. When my dd was young Disneyland is expensive. I would just not say her age since she was so small... I think they are pretty lenient though bc my son is 1 and is quite big and they never question.
