Mommy…why are you wearing your pajamas to work?

15 May 2012 Permalink

I really don’t think preschoolers can comprehend trends or styles…but they know what it means when you say, ”everyone else is doing it.”

That’s exactly how I responded to my daughter when she questioned these pants before I left the house.  “Pajama pants are ‘in’, Julia…and these aren’t mommy’s pajama pants anyway.  They’re work pants.”  And with that said, I kissed her good-bye, and departed for school.  The whole car ride I imagined her as a teenager…dressing in who knows what…giving me the same line.  “But everyone else is wearing them, mom.”

Oh, I can hardly wait.

      They really are comfy! The trick though is to wear heels…otherwise they truly do look like pj pants!

    I’ve thought about going to the pajama pant aisle at the thrift store and looking for wide leg pants! Yours look great!

    Mothers have a big influence over their daughters’ styles, esp a fashionable one like you! You also take fabulous photos, by the way.
