X has been complaining about outgrowing his shoes. So I finally took him to the store today where we had his feet sized. Now, keep in mind that it was just the LAST time I went to the shoe store that I found out Kelvinator had moved up into men's sizes. So I thought that would be the last shock for a while. But I was wrong. Because X's feet had grown two entire sizes. So now his feet are officially a size and a half bigger than the Hubba's. The same size that JJ wears.
At first I was joking around saying that now Dad can wear JJ's and X's hand-me-downs. But even I didn't really think that was funny anymore when I realized Dad's feet aren't getting any bigger and he will never be able to wear their hand-me-downs. So, X is barely 14 and his feet are so much huger than his dad's.
When we got home, I told the Hubba the prognosis and he did not believe me. Did. Not. In fact we had to have a foot measuring contest of the three oldest males on the livingroom floor shortly after I made that announcement. And it turns out, X has the biggest feet of all! MUCH bigger than the Hubba's and slightly bigger than JJ's.
I mean. Dang. You know? What the heck is happening to our little family if I can't even rely on the Hubba to be the biggest?
