Anand is skinny, and I’ve been a little lazy about buying him new shorts because for a long time, he was still fitting into size 5, and sometimes even size 4 shorts he already owned. But he started complaining about them this summer, so I finally bit the bullet and ordered new shorts — size 7, since he’s turning 7 in a few weeks, and I wanted him to be able to wear them next summer. They came, and I pulled them out of the box and Kevin and I agreed that oh, they look too big, he can’t possibly be big enough to wear those yet. But guess what fit him perfectly as he went off to school this morning? Yup, size 7 shorts.
Just hold on a minute, I need to drag back the inexorable hands of time for a few more years, okay?
