Yes, and apparently I take laziness to a new level because for me it's all about preventing laundry. We have clothes we wear around the house, sometimes uhh.. days at a time... and sometimes they double as pjs. We only wear 'real' clothes if we have to go somewhere.

I always get dressed and showered, no matter what day it is. I might do it late-- very, very lat, but I shower everyday and I don't like eating supper in my PJs. My oldest hser usually gets dressed by 3 or so. My youngest will often stay in her PJs all day long, but : she knows to get dressed for supper. Even if means throwing a dress over her long johns. There is something about supper that isn't about PJs.

My youngest ds comes home from school or activities and throwns on lounge pants asap. He's always been like this. If he doesn't have anywhere to go, he will stay in his jammies until throwing something on at supper.

dressed who needs to get dressed? If you are wearing pajamas you are dressed in my oppinion.

Of course my Dh has other ideas that differ but he works out side the home so.... Ssssssshhhhhhhhhhh........ Don't tell him what I just said.

we are usually dressed by sometime in the afternoon...well other then the littleset I can get her to keep clothes on right now.

I like to shower, dress and put on make up. I feel SO much better!

My kids, on the other hand, would like to live in their jammies. The other day it was driving my crazy and I told them I would really, really like it if they would get dressed in anything other than their jammies (it was 1 in the afternoon). One got dressed in a pirate custom, the other in her swimsuit!

but everything has pros and cons  shrug.gif

I prefer being dressed, at least part of the day, as well. I love a rainy day of cooking chicken soup where we stay home all day. I will still get dressed at some point, however.

My kids are like that as well. Now it's just my youngest who does the costumes. If I say "How about some clothes...or something..." she figures a costume is as good as 'real' clothing. And I do too.

It depends on the weather and how much sleep we got. I don't stress getting dressed when we are just staying home.
I think most days we try to be dressed before dh gets home from work.

This is three of my kids, too. I didn't see that option on the poll list.

I usually stay in my pjs until midday. I do feel good getting dressed. Some of that may be because we are adding on to our house, and there are often workers here, so I don't really like them seeing me in my pjs. It probably also has to do with the fact that I'm pregnant, and my pj bottoms aren't as comfortable as I'd like.

My son, though, stays in his underpants all day, and he usually sleeps in just underpants, too. He'll get dressed to go outside or if we're heading out, but as soon as he's back in, he strips down again. In fact, in warmer weather, he doesn't even always get dressed to go outside and play. We live in the middle of the woods, and he's just 5yo, so I don't make a fuss about it.

I voted never. I don't feel you are lazy though. If I don't get dressed to my lace up shoes then I'm not as efficient. I would get lazy.

My girls usually dress themselves around breakfast time. We love it when we don't have to go anywhere and celebrate by having a pajama day.

I voted "Sometimes, but I like to be dressed in the morning".

However, dd1 and ds are warm-blooded buggers and tend to run around in their undies all day, every day even when it's cold. I usually don't bother to make them get dressed unless we're going somewhere or expecting company.

Well, BooBah wears pajamas all the time. I make her change them every 24 hours or so.

BeanBean only wears pajamas when he's cold; the rest of the time he sleeps in underpants.

I need another option-- "No pajamas; my kids are naked unless they're going outdoors."

I voted "No", but I don't consider you lazy if you do stay in your jammies all day! We have to get dressed to drive DS to school.

The kids usually change into their clothes after breakfast - which could be anytime between 7:30 and 11:30!

My 3yo is an exception though: he usually wears NOTHING when at home! We try, but he will be butt-naked within 10 minutes anyways!

We usually dress before breakfast so that the pajamas don't get dirty and can be worn again for a few nights. Also, dd takes care of dogs early in the morning so she needs to wear something that works outside first thing in the AM. I try to be dressed early so I can do various chores.

However, any pjs that double as daytime clothes are fine for a full night and full day of wear.

I picked the third--the "sometimes"--option BTW.

I'm in the "I feel sloppy and unproductive if I'm in pjs" camp. But I think it's because I'm lazy enough that I just can't get myself to do anything if I'm wearing stuff I sleep in. I don't think someone who manages to do their normal day-to-day stuff in their pjs is lazy, I think they're more on the ball than I am.

My oldest right now is into making sure he's dressed "right," which means "like Dad." So he gets changed into an undershirt, pants, socks, and a shirt/sweater in the morning, and wears that all day until bedtime. I guess he hasn't noticed that dh changes out of his work clothes when he comes home.

My middle kid likes to wear shorts and a t-shirt. Clothes tend to make him itchy, so he wears as little has he can, always soft stuff. I'm thinking of splurging on some HA for him for Christmas.

Toddler would be naked all day if she could. Generally she doesn't mind pants & a onsie.
