Is it common for boys to out grow there pants in about a year? And I don't mean by height, I mean by the waist size.

I agree with lola, the previous poster. is your son getting taller, too? if so, he's probably having a growth spurt. is he noticeably fatter? have you weighed him? when my oldest son was 8, he put on 52 pounds in a year, and went to from chubby to fat, but then in the following years, he only gained 5 to 10 pounds a year. each boy is different. hope this helps.

Well, if your kid does it ever year it is a little unusual (if your kid is not overweight) but if they did it a couple times they are on a growth spurt
