I woke up this morning and my 13 yearold baby boy is taller than me!

Boys make me laugh. One day they just go. Good luck with the shopping.

Yes, that happens. My ds13 is at least 5'10, maybe 5'11 (hard to tell, the boy will not stand up straight!). His feet are so big! Much bigger than his dad's (or my dad's). And his legs,...he's now wearing a 34" inseam (but has a 28" waist). Clothes shopping is not fun. I order his pants and shorts online. It's the easiest way to do it. And shirts can be tough. I found Old Navy is good. They have "slim" fit, which means I can get a men's M or even L and it doesn't look like a tent on the boy.
But yes, they just seem to shot up overnight.

Is it weird that I look forward to this sort of thing? Lol... Granted, while my boys will probably get taller than me, I don't think they will be taking after the guys on my side of the family any time (all of them are over 6', but all of the guys in DH's family are around 5'8-5'10ish, and considering how small/short the boys are now I'm thinking they will take after that side!)
But idk, that sort of thing just sounds so cool to me. . But I've always been weird like that...pink just moved up to another class at church on Sundays and a friend was like, omg they are 4! Not babies anymore! Ad I'm like, 'Yay!' Lol
I wish link would grow out of some clothes. The last time I went shopping for clothes for him because of a size difference was 3 years ago!

I like having tall children. three are taller than dh by at least 2" - dudeling is only eight, but probably will be too. 2ds has smaller feet than 1ds, but 2ds is taller. 1ds hit his spurt early and was done by 15.

Wait until he starts resting his chin on top of your head!

I have a feeling this is going to happen with DD when she gets home from Disney on Saturday. I've been denying that she was my size for a while, but after a week away, I don't think I will be able to use denial anymore.

My guy did the shoot up thing this year--over 8"! He was SO slow to grow; he didn't grow until 17--he likes being the tallest of the kids. He was thrilled with Navy girl was home--he's an inch taller!
