What do you mean, pajamas?

I thought it was funny in this post from last week when I read this comment:

Then I read this one:

Great pictures! And we have those same jammies- they're a favorite of mine!

And then I knew that the joke was on me.

Because I never realized that those were pajamas.

My sister-in-law bought them for Andrew for Christmas the year he was nine months old. (They're 12-18 month.) He wore them the following spring/summer.

In our house:



And out in public:




Oops!

Around here, we do footed sleepers for pajamas, even in the summer, b/c at that age, they don't have a blanket and the air conditioner makes things cool all year long.
It doesn't really matter now b/c another realization I had was that the shirt is entirely too small for Benjamin's buddha belly. The pants he can still wear.
Just not sure where.

Oh, how funny! MIL got Rebekah several pr. pj's one year, and one pr. totally looked like a cute little comfy outfit. One day I DID let her wear them out on purpose just so she'd be comfortable. No one knew the difference. My mom even was surprised to find out they were pj's.

That's too funny! We have made that mistake too!

TOO funny!!! I have made that mistake with the girls' nightgowns before!!! LOL

LOL, that is awesome. We mix and match sleep wear with regular wear at our leisure. It drives my mom INSANE because I will let Ben sleep in a "regular" shirt instead of a jammie shirt some nights. LOL

In this case, I'm applying the phrase "there is no reality, only our perception of it" which translates to...if you don't see them as pj's, then they aren't. =)

OMG, that's too funny! It's ok though, because one day I had Erik outside in his (we were chatting with the neighbors) and someone said they loved his outfit. So I think it works! How ironic that we all have those same ones, since they are from a few years ago! lol

I've let Elijah wear his pjs out in public before. Fully knowing they were pjs. Just because he wanted to leave them on in the morning. And they are really cute. And because it seems like I have to say no all the time. And really, he's two, so who cares:)
