In the last few months, my 5th grade son went from can-totally-shop-in-the-kids-section to... uh... wait... where-the-hell-do-we-shop now?
Archer is tall for his age and going through a growth spurt as most children at this age do. He put on three inches and 15 pounds since the summer, which, I mean... pants have no chance in this house. One pair of jeans in particular he only wore once because... he grew. Overnight. Literally.
That is a thing that happens to children at this age. You're like, "Goodnight!" to your little baby boy and in the morning, you wake up to a man with a mustache.
(We recently watched BIG with the kids and I was like, THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT IT FEELS LIKE LATELY. JOSH!!!)
Archer's going to be 11 in May and wears a size 7 shoe and a size ? in clothes. And, yes, the question mark is legit because we just had to get rid of all of his 11-12 pants because they no longer fit him and when I went to go get him size 13s, all of those were too big so I ended up getting him MORE size 11-12s because... well... what else could I do? Except that I just got rid of his OTHER size 11-12s which didn't fit him anymore and I don't even know what's going on...

And for those with boys this age, WHERE DO YOU SHOP?
