Is This an Over the Top Time Saver? (I Put My Kids to Bed in Their School Clothes!)

Posted by   + Show Post

We all know that getting our kids ready for school in the morning can be an extremely stressful time between getting them up, dressed and fed.

This mom admits she skips the pajamas on school nights and has her kids sleep in their school clothes!


Is this a mom who is managing her time wisely? Or is it lazy parenting?

Also, it would be so uncomfortable! I hate even napping in my clothes.

Too over the top.

My oldest is a hassle to get up and out the door in the mornings, but we always make it on time. I'd rather dress him in the mornings.

I would never do that! They get wrinkled and sweaty.

My mom did something like that with my younger brothers. She had to be at work at 5am so she would wake up my brothers have them get dressed and they would go back to sleep. I couldn't do that with mine, he wets the bed.

 LOL - She may have chickens and needs to go out and get the eggs...  Andrew's hilarious.

I will say, this is tempting, but not something I could ever really do.  As the one mom said, my son would be "stewing in his juices" all night long.  Yuck!

Right!  No "stewing in their juices" as Alex says.

Yes way over the top. I like my
Boys to look neat. That's not going to
happen if they sleep in their clothes.

 I agree... I wouldn't want to sleep in my jeans, why would I want to make my kids do it?

Quoting jonellg:

lol I thought about doing this but it can't be comfortable.
