The docs have been monitoring a slight curvature in my middle kids spine. This involves and annual x-ray.

 

Doc tells wife, "he's going to be big." "Real Big." 6 2 or better big.

 

Last night at dinner, I noticed his freakishly large feet. Not sure why I didn't notice them earlier. Turns out he wears a 10.5. He's 12.

 

Wife dared me to compare his hand size to mine. His are larger (longer) but not as fat as mine. I have large hands. His are bigger. He's 12. :shock:

I told him last night, after he smirked after seeing that his hands were bigger, that I'd still kick his ass.

 

In fact, I remind both of them on regular occasion, that there will come a time when they want to unseat me at the table. It's only natural. A boy doesn't become a man until his kills his father, or some **** like that. I told them that the difference between me and them is that when the time comes, they will take pity on me and go easy whereas I will fight dirty and win. :)

We're a baseball family.

 

Still work on core strength and maybe throw yoga in so the spine curve does not impeded his ability to follow through on a swing. He should always properly stretch his back for best hitting results.

Yup. The curvature is very minor, in fact, only brought to our attention by an over reactive school nurse during a regular screening. The Doc isn't concerned.

 

The boy has gotten much better of late, as he's embraced his athleticism.

 

Unfortunately for him, he has my flexibility, and not his mothers.

I don't even understand why the doctor would make mention of it...unless he was worried about the spine issue. They should be reading the riot act to parents who have fat kids instead.

I don't call 6'3" freakish anyway. The other issue with boys is they attain almost 80% of their adult height by this age so it is not a big deal. I was 6 feet tall when I was 13 now I am 6'1" and 41..i just filled out a little as I ages instead of looking like a bean pole.

My 8 yr old is 5 feet tall already...not worried about it...as long as your kids are lean and active life is good.
