I had to take ds out to buy him a pair of dress shoes today (I don't normally buy him dress shoes because he wears them so rarely, but we're going to his grandmother's funeral next week back in the Midwest, and dress standards are 'stricter' among dh's family and he must have them for that).
He's now wearing a MEN'S size NINE! He's 10. The child is only 10. He's 59" tall. He's grown less than an inch this year, but he's gone through 2 whole shoe sizes in a year. He's showing absolutely no other signs of puberty (this is the child who still has me wash his hair). But TWO shoe sizes with little gain in height.
Please tell me that his feet will stop growing eventually, and that he will have a height spurt to match. Right now I feel like I'm raising Bozo the Clown when he has those shoes on!
