Nick went though his growth spurt late. He was like 13 or 14 and even then, it was a slow process. Michael is literally ripping and tearing through his clothes at an alarming rate. We bought him a brand new pair of sneakers right before school started. He went through nine weeks of school and a three week break to get us where we are right now.
His sneakers actually split at the seams! About a month ago. The sole and sneaker came apart! I mean, how often does that happen?? We used crazy glue and some sort of bonding stuff that Frank swore would work and...it did not.
He was a size 12 at the beginning of the school year. He is now a 14. At this rate, I have no idea how big he'll be by the end of the school year! We're not tall people. I'm barely 5'3 and Frank is about 5'9. Neither sets of parents/ grandparents are particularly tall so this is all a bit bizarre to me. I want to put a heavy book on his head and keep him this size for a little bit longer. Not just because of sentimental reasons but because we just cannot afford to buy him more clothes right now!
Why does time have to fly???
