Woudl you let your toddler wear footie pajamas to Target? - Page 10

post #181 of 190

Since when do we care about impressing the shoppers at Target?  Totally would not care.  I *do* tell my older kids getting dressed is a condition of leaving the house, but they're too big to be carried and made to ride in a cart.  At 2, footie jammies in Target are cute.  When it's your child who is barely 4 but has always been mistaken for at least a year older, or the 6 year old school-aged kid, it's time to teach some 'norms'  ;)

The "norms" are those things that my DD turns her nose up at.

I have yet to figure out the norms and this message board just proves it as so many "norms" seem to be VERY abnormal to others.

That's because what the norms are is entirely dependent on the groups, culture, ideas, etc of the people you are with. The norms in the US are different from the norms in Canada. The norms in California are different from the norms in Texas. The norms in Harvard are different from the norms in Sing Sing. The norms in your family are different from the norms in my family.

 

That is why we often behave differently in public than we do in private, or at work.

Plus the norms for different age groups are different.  If you're 19, in college and going to Wal-Mart at 3am clothes are weird and pjs are the norm.  Or at least the town I went to college in.  So I figure if college kids can get away with it so can my much cuter than college kid toddler lol.

(true story, my stepdad used to freak out about when I'd eat leftovers for breakfast because it wasn't a 'real' breakfast... although sometimes usually it was more healthy and balanced than his bowl of cereal... hehe)
 



 

Fixed that for you. =D

I let my toddler wear his footies to Sunday School if that's the only thing he will put on.

 

I figure, it must be really important to him if he's getting all aggravated over it - and in twenty years, I'm not sure it will matter much!

You sure do have two beautiful little girls!! 

 

Call me old fashioned, but I think there is a time and a place for PJ's in public....maybe if the child is ill and on the way to the doctors.  smile.gif
