Not that I'd been away and kept imagining him smaller than what he already really was (he's been a few cms taller than me for months now and I'm not allowed to forget it *snort*) but this was noticable.
Wednesday he re-read his football team newsletter and discovered he should have started training 2 weeks previously (minor moment but quickly settled) then....
"You better try on your footy boots to see if they still fit," hubby remarked and I almost choked on my cuppa tea.
Whistling in the wind with that one, dear.
This kid has had more growth spurts in the past 6-8 months than I've had hot dinners.
No, footy boots too small, so off they trotted to the nearby (thank god) soccer shop where the clod-hoppers didn't break the bank.
Yes, that does say size 14.
Just for argument's sake I got the Aspie teen up against the measuring wall thingie - doesn't every house have one? (ours is the inside of the kitchen door frame).
Yep, he'd edged upwards a good 5cms since we last measured.
It may or may not have something to do with the tonnes of meals he works his way through every day.....
