What Size Clothes Does Your 5 Year Old Wear?

I was just wondering what the average was.

My DD wears a 7/8 in shirts, because a 6/6 is too short and she wears a size 6X to a 7 in pants. She is 3'10.

My DS (they are twins) wears a 6/7 in shirts and a 5-6 in pants. He has a much longer torso than DD..she is all legs. He is also shorter, around 3'8.5".

Well my son is 5 and he is skinny and tall but he wears size 6 slim (pants) and I'm pretty sure he wears size 4/5 in shirts..

 Mine wore 5's at 5, 6 @ 6, up to age 8, when they got chunky, their clothing sizes matched their ages.

My 5 year old son is 44 inches tall and 47 lbs, we just went to the dr's today and they told me he is in the 90th percentile for weight and I need to watch his diet closer. Just blew my mind because he is not chubby at all! He wears a size 5 boys adjustable waist jean from Gap or Old Navy and a 4/5 shirt. Here's a pic fron today, not the best but you get the point.

When my oldest was 5 he was wearing size 7 jeans and 6 shirts. Not because he was heavy but because he was so tall and broad.

My dd is now 6 and she wears 7 in pants (they are way too long and too big in the waist, but 6-6x are too short!  It's weird!!)

She wears 6 to 7 in shirts.  I tend to buy things big so she can wear them longer!

 When my dd was 5 she was still wearing a size 4T, but she is very skinny.


But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
