Opinion on PJ's please

I have a little girl who has worn PJs to school two days in a row(the same pair). She says her mom said its okay and she was tired this morning and didn't want to get dressed again.


Anyone have the same problem?

We have a PJ Day a couple times a year in class as a reward but this is over the top.

She's not naked and it's the end of the year. Not a hill I'd die on.

If mom's not going to fight it, I'm not going to fight it.

How many days left?

If you still have 30 or more days, I would call/ write mom about it. If you have less than 10 days, pjs are fine. Especially since you had pj days a couple of times during the year.
I guess what concerns me more is that her mom is too tired. I wonder what exactly “too tired” means. Can the school counselor look into it? And the child wore the same pjs 2 days in a row, right?

I took it to mean the child was too tired. And I am having 2 kids per day (different kids) fall asleep in class. No one is immune to end of the year exhaustion!

I would check in with mom, just to make sure everything is OK.

I expect the PJ's are the little girl's idea, and mom is going to say something about choosing not to fight this battle or encouraging her daughter's independence.

But there's always the off chance mom is ill or something and you'll regret not checking up on the situation if you find out later.

WIth my youngest we had lots of battles. Sometimes I got tired of the fight and figured if something wasn't okay with the school, they would let my dd and me know - and then it wouldn't just be my battle. If the school said something, she would follow it better.

Have you told the little girl that pj's are only for special days and you don't want her to wear them again tomorrow? Mom might appreciate it.

totally a control issue....mom I'm sure won't deal with it. At conferences, she told me when she tells her kids what to wear they yell at her. (they are 5 and 7)

My concern is that other parents/staff are wondering why I allow them in the K room.


We have 25 days left I believe. They are the feety ones that zip(she wears her sneakers over the feet).

Yeah, she might be setting herself up for worse battles later on...

I think little kids benefit from some choice in what they wear, but a choice between a couple of things the parent approves of.

Then it sounds like you're worried it's affecting your classroom environment. Double-check your handbook for dress code to make sure they really aren't allowed, and then talk to the girl yourself. Explain that if she's allowed to wear PJ's any day she wants, then it spoils that as a special day reward for everyone.

I have kids who wear capes and tiaras every day. I have a little friend who wears the exact same shirt every day. Mom just washes it every night. It's a phase. I just don't care. Pick your battles. Unless the clothing or behavior is disruptive or dangerous, and there's no other sign of neglect or abuse, just let it go.

Totally not something I’d worry about. I’d worry if they came to school dirty/ smelly/ hungry/overly sleepy but pjs are just clothes. I wouldn’t make it an issue.

Late to the party...

For grins and giggles, I checked my kid's district dress code.

Nothing for K-5 on jammies/costumes. Just no hoodies/hats/masks. Can't roll in with bootie shorts, spaghetti straps, muscle man shirts...

High school specifically lists no jammie footie one-ies, pajamas top and bottoms or anything that would be considered a costume or "distractioning".

If the family hasn't been a tire fire all year, I'd let this go. I've had kinders who'd wear tiaras, fairy wings, cat ears, super hero costumes. Usually in response to mom's pregnant, getting a new baby sib, or someone died (pet/human). It's a control thing.

As long as the kid does her work, and seems about the same (not sulky/crying/disengaged), I'd roll with it.
