On an average schooling day, if we don't have outings planned or there are no errands to run, we often hang out in our jammies till about 1 or 2. Only because we are heading outside to play. There are days where dh comes home from work (4:30 ish) and we are still in PJ's Do you do the same or are we just lazy?

I was just thinking I better get my DD dressed and it's about 11:15 here. But hey, who wants to trade warm fuzzy fleece PJs for jeans? My son usually plays with his legos after breakfast in his undies and I have to remind him to get dressed a few times-you'd think he'd be cold but whatever....
I was dressed by 10am but not willingly!

I like to get dressed by lunch. And by dressed I mean tshirt and sweatpants with bra and deoderant - it's the bra and deoderant that make all the difference.

The kids will wear pj's all day some days. Less laundry for me.

We homeschooled for 3 years, until this year. My rule (because I'm a contol freak) is no pjs after noon in the living room. I don't have any kids in diapers, and our idea of summer pjs is just a long t-shirt.

Also, no computer or TV (too easy to get sucked into) until you're dressed (well, not including me before the kids wake up!), eaten, teeth brushed, etc. because otherwise when I need to go somewhere, it would take too long to get everyone going.

Great thread!

We do long shirts for pjs here, and sometimes, if we're just bumming around the house, Kenzie will stay in his all day. Doesn't bother me any, and it's more comfortable for him. I usually get up and check email before I get dressed. Of course, we've been night owls recently, going to bed at 3AM and getting up at 11, so it's certainly possible to catch me in my pjs after noon.

We don't hang out in pjs past 10 or 11am, simply because it affects me if we don't get dressed. It sounds weird perhaps but if I get dressed, I feel more productive and positive. If we hang out in pjs, it negatively affects me somehow and I feel like I'm in a rut. So, we don't hang out in pjs but that's why. If we all shower and get dressed in the morning, even if the kids play all day, I still feel like we've been productive and it makes me feel positive rather than "blah".

Often that's exactly how you will find us. Especially me. Especially now that it is cooler and rainy. If we have nowhere to go I just don't see the point.

The kids will often get dressed out of pajamas, but its into similiar stuff like lounge pants and a sweatshirt of t-shirt. We wake up anywhere from 9-noon and sometimes take showers just before dinner.

We get dressed, but I'd never call y'all lazy.

My kids wear pajamas all the time unless they are going out. My daughter dances every day and she usually doesn't get dressed until dance time and then it's obviously in dance clothes. Then when she gets home she strips down and immediately puts her PJs back on.

Some days I don't get a shower til noon.

My kids like to get dressed.

I like to stay in pj's or "house clothes". (clothes I wouldn't dare wear in public).

pttthh!
my dd sleeps in her clothes, and often wears the same outfit 3 days running, so no, she is NEVER in her pjs all day
:
I usually sleep naked, so I get dressed when I get up, at least when the weather is cold :

Difficult to answer this one. We generally don't wear "outside" clothes in the apartment. We all strip when we come in the door. We hang out in jammies or sweatpants because they are comfortable.

If we aren't going anywhere, my dd will often stay in her jammies (which consist of leggings and thermal shirts in the winter and nightgowns or t-shirts in the summer) all day. She may change out of them and put on clean jammies LOL If we go out, we wear "outside" clothes.

I often like to shower even if I'm not going out. If I don't plan to go out, I will shower and put on clean pajama pants and a tank top

We all get dressed after breakfast, always. It feels very "wrong" to me to stay in jammies all day ( we define sweats as jammies).
post #14 of 51
Me, yes, unless we leave the house. Dd has a passion for fashion, so not so much.

We stay in jammies unless we go out. Easier & comfier!

If we aren't going anywhere and don't have anyone coming over, we will usually spend the whole day in our PJs. Of course that hardly ever happens

Same here. I feel much more energetic and ready for the day when I'm dressed in day clothes - and putting on night clothes makes me feel more relaxed and ready for bed at night. I like the differentiation - day vs. night. My son just automatically changed into day clothes awhile after he got up - it was never an issue. Same with his dad. I don't wear uncomfortable clothes, though - so it's not as if I get up and put on stiff or binding things.

PS: You jumped straight from "Sometimes, but I like to be dressed in the morning" to "Never! You are lazy!" - I would have picked something more like "No, never - unless I'm not feeling well...", so I didn't mark one.

Whenever I don't get dressed in the morning, I end up getting "caught" by a neighbor or the UPS guy or something. It embarasses me. So I get dressed in the morning. Sometimes my kids get dressed first thing, and sometimes they don't. I do insist they get dressed before lunch-- I guess I'm a control freak too. It just bugs me to have them in their pjs too long, and it keeps them from playing outside, which I think is important.

But I don't think folks who like their pjs are lazy.

Yes! We are usually still eating breakfast and playing board games at 10 a.m. I often encourage our children to get dressed while I make lunch. We almost always have circle time and math in pjs. I've been thinking of sleeping in sweats because of the odd person who drops in, but I'm a flannel-plaid person. I periodically resolve to shower daily, but then decide there are more fun things to do or plan something sweaty or dirty which would obviate bathing!

I'm still grubby today ...
peace,

We usually have one or two days a week where we are in pj's all day. I love it!
