Super Serious Situation

19 Mar

Cole is 7.5 years old.  He has no butt.  It is uncomfortable when he sits on your lap.  He is hilarious to look at from behind because of the No Rear End-ness.

Whatever.

Except…He’s been wearing 2T swimming trunks for the past several years.  Larger ones won’t stay up.  Drawstrings won’t tighten enough.  It is a ridiculous problem, one that I’ve certainly never had.  But now the baby shorts are a bit too short and he’d like some awesome big guy trunks.

I made an attempt.  We looked at some at Target last night while picking up some other things.  The smallest size was about double his waist.  He really doesn’t want to have to shop in the baby/toddler section anymore.  I wonder if I can sneaky buy some online and convince him of something, I don’t exactly know what.

In case you were wondering, Owen has the same disability.  He’s still wearing 12 month trunks that I had to take in and sew two inches awkwardly on the waist.

WHO ARE THESE CHILDREN?  They are not related to their robust parents.

And that’s my odd story for today.

    Too funny. All my kids have a decent sized rear end, but their waists are ridiculously small. I’ve resorted to paying extra $$ and shopping where things are truly slim.

    Not a problem in our family. My kids eat ALL DAY LONG. And they have enormous bottoms and waists. It’s also a problem when buying clothes. 3Ts don’t fit Isaac in the middle part of his body but they’re too long. 2Ts are out of the question at this point–wedgies are now an issues since he has no diaper protection. Neil? Just got out the 18 month stuff which is also too long but barely wide enough. We can’t win so I guess we should just move to the Carribbean and go around naked.

    You guys have a crazy 8? We got some swim trunks from there wit the adjustable waist. Might work.
