Several days ago, I conducted an informal poll among my mommy friends related to their sleeping habits. That is, not how much sleep they get… but rather what they sleep in.
Think us mommies dress in French teddies and silk pjs? (Hahaha! That’s a good one!)
The most popular response was a tie between… wait for it… an old t-shirt or husband’s old t-shirt.
And now, as I type out this post wearing cotton pants and my husband’s old t-shirt, I feel quite the camaraderie amongst you all. We are total bums in the sack and we just don’t care.
But what do we care about? We care about our kids. And for the most part, they sleep in style.
Would you ever put your darling daughter to bed wearing a grotty old t-shirt? Probably not. In fact, I’m willing to bet that your little angel is dressed in a fabulous matching set like the one pictured to the right (available at The Children’s Place).
And while both my boys are hardly fashion forward, they do enjoy a rotating array of super-cute sleepwear thanks to their doting mommy – who will gladly sacrifice her own sleep attire in favour of toddler pjs adorned with rocket ships, aliens, construction vehicles and the like. And why do I do this??? For the distinct pleasure of hearing Ryder say:
“Oh! My truck pjs tonight? I love my truck pjs!”
Totally worth it.
So the question is, do your children sleep in style? The Children’s Place makes it easy with so many adorable sleep sets – especially for young ones aged 0 months – 4T. Both my dudes love a nice, bright set of pjs, so it’s no wonder they’re all smiles before bed –
Of course, actually getting them to GO to bed is another post altogether. They’re just the type of kids who like to squeeze every ounce of energy from the day (and mommy and daddy’s life). So, when bath time is over and the pjs are on, chances are you’ll find them sneaking back down to the family room for a little horseplay, or like last night, a 3D movie (gee, husband, thanks for giving them the green light. I was thrilled to put in Finding Nemo 3D at 8:30pm).
The above pj sets, courtesy of The Children’s Place, are currently on sale for $16.99 PLUS an additional 30% off. You can check out all of their sweet and sassy sleepwear here. Because it’s fun to sleep in style!
So tell me… are you more likely to deck out your children for bedtime than yourself?
I actually sleep in PJs from Joe Fresh. Never one to wear hubby’s t-shirt to bed. My kids do have cute PJs especially my almost 4 yr old who knows exactly which one she is wearing for the night.
I think it’s adorable that your 4 year old knows exactly which one she wants to wear :)
My grandkids do sleep in style compared to me and their grandfather lol I sleep in old tattered pjs
Hahaha well maybe it’s time for an upgrade from tattered old pjs to just old pjs :)
Sara bought me a pair of pajamas for Christmas 2011 and they still look new. I wear those because they are flannel and oh, so comfy!!
LOVE flannel pjs! Every Christmas I tell myself I am going to buy some and then never get around to it :)
Yep totally! I sleep in old t-shirts!
Another one! Hahaha
I do sleep in old tshirts in the summer, but in winter, I snuggle into my fleece pjs – nothing else will do! My kids all love their fleece pjs too, and yes, they are in nice and cute pjs year ’round.
I am totally getting fleece pjs next winter :)
Most definitely. I love sleeping in t-shirts! But my daughter would love those kitten jammies!
Aren’t they just too adorable? Love them!
yes the kids all year, although I normally get myself a cozy pair for Christmas
I’m kind of happy that the days of cozy pjs are behind us! Welcome spring!
I love PJ’s Sleep in them all the time. I buy PJ for everyone in the family.
You’re a good mom, Florence!
Haha this is so so so true. I had the cutest PJs when I was little, and my parents slept in track pants and tees. And now I have become my parents.
Yes, I’m so glad you can sympathize with me!
Im lucky if my son wears anything to bed! He does have an assortment of matching PJ’s and old tshirts / sweat pants too but just prefers his skin :)
Hahaha well you can’t fault him for knowing what he prefers :)
cute PJs are a must!
I love buying carters pjs for my kids, theyre soo soft and warm for a cold winters night.

I think it’s important for kids to sleep in comfortable pajamas and that they be warm for the winter and cool for the summer but it certainly doesn’t hurt if they’re cute !
