To PJ or Not PJ ... THAT is the question ...

Pin It ... asked by The Homeschool Village this week!



What does getting dressed look like in your home? Do you wear mismatched socks and neon lounge pants? What's the funniest thing your kid wears to school? Link up your post!

Getting dressed ... now that the girls are a little bit older, I do require them to get dressed in the morning. Pajama day was lots of fun when they were little, but now the oldest would look at me as if I had two heads if I suggested pajama day. I can hear it now "But MOTHER! What if someone came over?!?" Oh the horror.

It does start out day off on a good note to have a specific morning routine to follow, and that includes them getting dressed. I didn't say they had to be dressed especially WELL, just decently. And, you will note, I also said THEM getting dressed. On the days I don't have to run the youngest to preschool, you'll find the girls up and dressed and usually me up and jammied. What can I say, it is what it is. :-P

Have a great day, everyone!

We do the same thing. We do not have to be perfectly dressed. Most days I am in workout pants and a sweatshirt. My kids throw on jeans and a shirt. It is just nice to feel prepared for the day.
Blessings!

Thanks girls! :) I finally got caught up on visiting blogs. I absolutely love the different perspectives we all have and love visiting your blogs. :)

Like you, I find it easier to get the girls up, dressed, and ready to go than to get myself done! They want me to help with school after they're ready, and then how am I supposed to get ready?!

My goal is to start getting up earlier than they do so that happens more easily, but I haven't managed it yet. (Honestly, though, I haven't been feeling well.)
