If you had to guess, how old would you say <a href="http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l40/alyantavid/24357_401916821952_543311952_448915.jpg" target="_blank">this boy</a> is?<br><br>
This is strictly to satisfy my curiosity. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

4 would be my first guess, but 3 or 5 would not be surprising to me.

I should have made this a poll.<br><br>
He'll be 4 next month. He's a big kid (45 lbs, 44ish inches) and people are always sure he's at least 5. We even got a call from the school yesterday asking if he was ready for a kindergarten screening.

K Screening at 4? He cannot attend public school as a K until 5 though, right? So he would not be ready for elementary school for another year and half.. so why would they call and ask you such a thing?

Because they didn't realize he is only 3. Which was the point of this thread, that he looks and people assume he's older. My older son attends a very small school where everyone knows us and knows that ds2 is ds1's younger brother. They just obviously didn't realize how much younger he is.<br><br>
No, he can't start kindergarten until he's 5, but he will go through the screening at 4 because of how his birthday falls.
