I get comments all the time about how he is not acting his age, but he really is.
Me and my wonderful husband serve God. Blessed with twin girls 2/11/11. <3

We are used to hearing "Oh what a big boy he is" and all the other comments you get when you have a large kid. I am used to the looks he gets when he is acting age appropriate because people think he is much older.
We were at swim lessons today. After the lesson I took him into the womens
dressing room to get him changed after his lesson. There were lots of little boys and girls and their Mom's getting changed. A couple women were looking at me and Ds while I was getting him changed. Then I heard one say loudly to the other that DS should not be in the womens changing area because there are little girls getting changed. He is too old and should be in the Men's changing room getting changed himself.
I didn't say anything, although I know I should have. I just finished getting him changed and left.
If it comes up again next week I will just say "he is 4 and needs my help".
I'm just frustrated because I have to justify helping my kid!:
Been quietly hanging around here for over 10 years.

He wasn't very verbal when he was little and he potty trained late so that was ummm, interesting.
I just ignored any looks.
