  • Non clothing? Everything you just named is clothing. lol

    Depends on where we're headed, yeah, sometimes I do. You only get to be small and completely self-assured once!

  • Yep. All the time when she was smaller.

  • We've all gone out and gotten ice cream in our pjs before doing a movie night at home and paused the movie to go get a treat...but most of the time, no

  • hes 5. when he was smaller we put him in his pj's for a late 2 hr trip to the inlaws and took him into walmart in them. he still likes to wear his halloween costumes around the house (spiderman and captain america) but i make him change if we are going somewhere. I have let him wear a pj top with jeans to the store (of course because it had a hero on it)

  • depends on the age and what is going on. sometimes we get up very early to head out on the road to visit family and the kids wear jammie pants and t-shirts, they walk through the gas stations like that and it doesn't bother me. when my girls were little we would go places in their one piece suits but not now at the ages of 18 and 19, they would never walk around in just swim suits( in public) but my almost 7 yr old son, he would be fine walking around stores in swim trunks. as far as costumes my kids are only interested in those one day a year and yes they can go in public on Halloween :) in costumes

  • Yeah - sometimes they even like to wear their Halloween costumes to the grocery store in May.

  • My son is 5 and often wears his police costume or pirate costume out. It's cute and it makes him happy! I've taken them to get bagels in their pjs on occasion.

  • Pj's not usually but we will have jammie day at home now and then. My 3 yo dd loves to wear her sister's old dance recital costumes and her princess costumes. I figure why not I spent too much on them for them to just sit in the basement! lol Her sister wore them once or twice out after her recital too.
    We will all wear a pj's to school for snuggle up and read day, but one day I forgot that we had a dentist appointment right after school (1/2 day) and no time to go home and change so we all went in our jammies to the dentist and then out for lunch. It was funny!!!

  • Nope, but then my kids have never asked. I had them in PJs when they were babies obviously, but beyond wearing a Halloween Tshirt in June or a Christmas Tshirt in February, they don't.
