A way to slow my son's growth down
« on: May 19, 2006, 05:57:24 PM »
Well I came home tonight to find my wife marking my son's height on the post in the living room.

he's 13 years old and 6' tall weight 190 lbs and wears size 16 1/2 shoes.  :o  :o

I told Kate to stop putting the miracle grow on his food but she stopped a couple of years ago.

I think that we are going to start hiring him out to sawmills as a tailman to help with his clothing and food bill.    He has 3 years experiance tailing lumber, along with stacking and stickering, and knows how to load and unload a kiln.  He'll just need some instruction as to how your operation works

He told us tonight that he will work for cheese grits  :D :D :D :D :D

School is out in 4 days; summer rates are available.  But be warned he eats his weight in food each day. ;) :D :D :D


 Zac reads the forum sometimes and I'm waiting to see his reaction

Part_Timer - there is hope. I was nearly 6' tall when I was in 6th grade - and didn't grow another inch until I was past 21.

Between 21 and 25 I grew another 2 inches.

But, I am very concerned about the grits...  ::)
So, how did I end up here anyway?

 :o Those aren't shoes, they are gunboats. Fred is right, cheese grits are not the problem.

Guys I hope he keeps eating those grits.  GOI sent them to us and I know they'll stunt his growth. :D

To be honest I hope he keeps growing and is 6'6" If he follows the rest of the family line he'll weigh 230-260 lbs.  the height should help him hide that belly later in life. :) :) :D

HAve a good weekend all

that would be nice but

Zac is not into competative sports.  He likes to play b.ball in the summer league because no one cares about winning.  When the kids start getting balled up about who wins or looses he goes and finds something eles to do.  For him fun is more important than winning.

Had the same problem, My oldest son about eat us out of house and home in his teen years He's now 23,  6'6, shoe size BIG and has upper arms the size of my upper legs. When He sees me he picks me up and bounces me to snap my back, man that feels good! Dude it only lasts so long, then they move out, you can make it. Perhaps your son will do what my son is doing, go to college to become a personal trainer for some sports team, he's in the gym atleast twice a day. And oh did I mention, my daughters POTENTIAL boy friends are plum scared off, no need for a shot gun, with an older brother the size of a upright freezer :D

D2N

That's just to funny.   :D :D :D :D

There is one nice part to it.  I tell him if he wants to get his 6 squares a day he has to help tail and sticker lumber.  ;D ;D 

I really don't have any complantes. He is either on the honor roll or close,  he stays out of trouble for the most part ( I'll tell that story later)  and does his own laundry.  He even says please and thank you when company is around.  What more could ya want from a teenager.

Sounds like you have a good son there.  congrats.   :) :) :) :)

Here one for consideration, recently we had to ground teenage son #3 and my wife said to me "Oh my God with him being grounded how in the world and I going to keep food in the house? He'll eat us out of house and home" Who said punishment only applies to the one being punished? Well that's wrong, the grocery bill went through the roof that month... Geeze... I can relate to you BIG TIME  :D

Well folks I'm sure that lard don't work cause we still cook with that sometimes.  You just can't get fried chicken like mom makes without lard

Zac is still 200lbs and 6'.  not much growth this summer but I'm sure that will change now that we have bought the kids new cloths for school.  Seems that nothing changes until you spend the money on clothes.

Oh gosh no, I'm too scared.

I have a size 13 foot. Any of the gals out there will tellya, Normal shops don't stock over size 11.

Size 13 shoes START at $150. So, thankfully, I'm not real vain, so I buy mens' shoes.

Luckilly Leather Clogs look the same whether mens or womens. :D

Thankfully, My son's feet seem to take after his father, and they're a more normal size.

My daughter, on the other hand, is 10yo and has a ladies size 10 foot.

Poor kid.
