Moms of 7 year old boys or older?? I need your help!

Posted by   + Show Post

 So my son, turns 7 tomorrow, is HUGE! In my mind when I look at him I think he looks normal. He's a growing boy and eats alot. My mom has been gone for a month to TX on vacation. When she came back and saw my oldest son she asked if he was active and eating healthy.  He is just as active as his little brothers and plays outside daily. He barely never sits in front of a TV or plays video games. My kids arent really into that. I have shared parenting with my ex husband so I'm not real clear on what goes on at that house eating and play wise. But I guess what I'm trying to find out is if my son should be eating less or being more active. I don't want him to gain too much weight and become unhealthy. For instance he ate just as much as I did for dinner tonight. And he was still asking for more. He is 72 lbs. I look at some parts of his body like his thighs and calves and even feet and they are pudgy lol.... but I always just thought of him as being a thick boy. A growing boy. Any advoce or comments are appreciated. Thanks!

Wow mama! My 3yr old is 39" 38-39#. I can't imagine a 7yr old being the same size lol.

Quoting mackQuin:
