My Child, The Giant

I know I have commented before on how tall Peyton is growing, but it is starting to get out of hand. I took him Sunday afternoon to buy some new flip flops as the rubber sole had separated from his continuous foot dragging. We went into the store and I asked the salesman for kids' sizes and he advised that the store didn't really carry that many. So, I took a shot and said what's the smallest men's size do you have?

He thought for a moment and said, I think we have some 5's.

I had just bought Peyton some 4.5 tennis shoes the week before for school, so I thought the 5 would probably work. We started getting out the 5's, but the band was a little tight across his foot, so I pulled down a 6.

A 6!

It fit. He did have some room to grow, but they really didn't look that big on him.

My foot can fit in his flip flop now and I do not have small feet for a woman. I normally wear a 8.5 or 9. Granted, my feet just fit, but the do fit.

I can wear my 7 year old's flip flops.

The kid is going to be towering over me before I know it.

I realized I had typos in the last comment! That is a big foot for a 7 year old! How tall is he?

DAMN. You know, chicks dig tall guys; you should probably start collecting big sticks with which to beat them off right about now.

I know the feeling. My son at 11 is going to be taller than me by the end of the year. I often have to ask him for my flip flops back. Maybe I should get girly pink ones!
