This is nothing earth shattering but I just can't shake the guilty feeling I have this morning .

Today is pajama day at my son's preschool; well this morning I woke up late and was so wrapped up in getting myself looking decent that I let my husband get DS dressed for school. DH is notoriously bad at picking outfits but I figured how bad can he screw up PJs? By the time I finished getting ready they were already sitting in the car waiting for me so we could all leave. As soon as I see the PJ's my husband put on DS I get a siniking feeling and think great those are so babyish, but my son seemed excited "mommy I can't wait to show my friends my PJ's and see theirs!!" But sure enough as soon as I walked in to his class there is a little girl sitting at a table right by the door "THOSE ARE BABY PJ'S!". My son froze in his tracks and didn't say anything, I did a quick comment and said these are not baby pj's they are just really warm Pj's.

Ughhh, i know it's no big deal really but i just have this sinking feeling that I set my kid up for a full day of ridicule

My Son's Middle school does that as a fund raiser few times a year, He says the only ones who do it is some of the girls. Since my son sleeps in just his boxers I don't Think they would allow him to show up at school in just them. Maybe one or two boys will show up in sweat pants & t's (not sure how you can tell that its PJ) since 1/2 the school is in Sweats & shorts every day. But they get a pin to where for the day saying I'ts PJ Day...

i know how you feel. as mothers we always try to think ahead and stop anything from happening to them. we try to anticipate the worse--even something as simple as PJ day. he will be ok. kids are just very honest and say whatever comes to mind. unfortunately they dont realize until its too late that they said something hurtful.

Kind of, they are the just like the ones with the feet but with no feet just cuffs. I actually got them because my son's feet are very large so he doesn't usually fit in the feetie ones but they are so warm. The print has very cutesy baby lions and baby tigers, I was actually surprised they sold that print in such a large size but I though what the heck it's not like he ever has to wear them outside!

I'm sure he'll be okay I just feel bad that he's probably going to get some totally avoidable comments thrown his way today just because I woke up late. :::SIGH:::: Hopefully it'll help him come up with some quick come backs!

Well i don't think those types of jammies are too babyish for a preschooler. What was the little girl wearing? A negligee? LOL

It's only preschool, he'll get through it. I would have probably addressed the little girl with a question about her pj's and all the different kind of pj's there are. Go pick your son up wearing a Snuggie and he'll forget all about his pj's.

Eh, he'll survive. They may not have been the best choice by dad, but it sounds like your son likes them (maybe he actually picked them out?). Besides a little mild ribbing never hurt anyone. My son has a pair of Wall-E footie PJ's that still fit him (he's 6 and 49" tall). When it's really cold he busts those out. His cousin was sleeping over one night after we went out and was making fun of him for wearing footie PJ's. My son just shrugged his shoulders and said, who cares, my feet are warm.

What else would you put on a preschooler? Playboy bunnies? I am sure your son will survive.
