what do you think about SAHMs or a mom in general leaving there kids in PJ's ALL DAY REPOST

My sister is known for this, she happends to be a sahm, thou working mothers sometimes do this too, however working mothers are more apt to dress there LO's because they have to get to a sitter, or day care.
My sister will leave her son in the same footed PJ's all day, all night, and into the next, sometimes I sware his pjs could stand up by themselves.
She will even bath him, and put him back in dirty PJS.
I just feel leaving your children in PJs instead of getting them up and dressed is pure laziness.
Does anyone feel the same.

  • I don't think there is anything wrong with letting your kids wear their pj's all day as long as they are not filthy. My kids do this sometimes.

  • umm, Its 12:36pm here and both of my girl's are still in the night gowns. Half the time I never drress them unless we are leaving or my dd who is 3 is always in her underware. Layzeness no. It's a waste of doing laundry.

  • Well, I think when she baths them she should change their clothes. Sometimes we have lazy days, where we sit in our pjs all day-like sunday. We were out all day saturday, and came in very late around 2 am, we slept late sunday, and had a lazy day. I try not to do that often, but sometimes I just am being lazy. At the end of the night how ever when we bath it is fresh clothes, why bath if your going to put on dirty clothes.

  • If we aren't going anywhere, I let my son stay in his undies all day because it reaches 100+ where I live during the summer. What's the point of getting him dressed if he's just going to be at home?

  • I think the situation you described where she might bathe him and put on the same pjs after he's already worn them for 24+ hours is kind of extreme. Under normal circumstances, I don't have a problem with all day pjs though, but not everyday. And it is disturbing to me to go to a store or something and see a child in the middle of the afternoon.... a big kid, not a baby.... in pjs or a sleeper. At least dress your kid to take them out, right??

  • Pj's are for sleep or when mine are sick... otherwise set a schedule and keep to it, if you work in or out of the home schedules are very important for you and your child.... everyone up by ?, eat by ? work by? ... a sahm can loose track of time/motivation for meals or any social interaction with their child... if that is the case a sahm should look into child care as their little one needs the social interaction from someone... if you can not keep a schedule at home what will your work day be like? ... get them up, dressed, fed, and play time...

  • I work out of my home so I wear my PJ's all day unless I go out but I dont have any small children. My youngest is 14 and she can dress herself.

  • When my kids were little (I talking younger than about 18 months), I used to keep them in footed jammies in the winter unless we were going out somewhere. Even when I was driving my daughter to kindergarden, my youngest stayed in his PJs. IMO, they are a little warmer than a 2 piece outfit, with no worries of exposed skin when the top or pant legs ride up, and it saves a little on laundry.
    But, just for the record, they got a clean pair on after they were bathed.
