Alex, although growing, is still tiny boned. He has a 21 in. waist and stick legs with knobby knees. When we adopted him from Russia 2 -1/2 yrs. ago he was a whopping 32 lbs (at age 5!).
He is now 45 lbs so you can see he is growing but he has a long way to go! Anyway, we had gotten him size 4 underwear when he got here. Back then they were a bit big. Now that he is rapidly approaching his 8th birthday I felt it was time for new underwear. I bought him some size 6’s. He was very excited about these Spongebob underwear. The first time he put them on he looked at the gaps where his skinny little legs went through the holes and exclaimed, “Hey, Dad…these must be boxers because they are big!” We got a chuckle out of that one!
