Time for a lite inconsequential thread.

What do your kids wear to sleep in.

When I was a lad (ah don't you just love reminiscing about the past) we all wore matching top and bottom pyjamas. In summer short pant and short sleeve and in winter long flannelette pjs. In summer the girls wore short nighties and in winter often the same long pant style pjs as the boys.

Now it seems much greater range and the matching PJ sets are out of fashion.

Do your kids wear undies to sleep in?

And while we are at it, bedding. Do your kids sleep with sheets and blankets or just a doonah?

Don't know what a "doonah" is. My son wears matching pj's usually but sometimes he argues and wants to wear his clothes to bed -- we pic our battles and acquiesce on that one. DD wears a t-shirt and jammy bottoms usually. They both use sheets, blankets and a comforter or quilt depending on time of year.

lol, I had to look up "doonah", to save others the trouble, it's the Aussie word for duvet.

It all depends. The girls who are 2 and 3 tend to wear matching PJ sets or long nightgowns. The 3 year old has also repurposed some of her brothers old shorts and t-shirts for bed time use as well. My son who is 7 has some matching PJ sets, but generally wears flannel PJ bottoms with a t-shirt or sweatshirt. A little while back he got an Army t-shirt and camo nylon shorts and those have become his favorite. Occasionally he will also "Hugh Hefner it" in PJ bottoms and a Spongebob robe. What I find funny with my son is that much like my wife, when he is home he prefers to be in PJ's. Literally, walk in the door, go get changed into PJ's for lounging around the house.

As for the bed coverings, all of my kids are/were "blanket" kids. Only the 3 year old had a blanket attachment, but the rest all have a preferred blanket for sleeping with. In all three cases the preferred blanket for sleeping is a large microfiber comforter. Dora for the 2 year old, Disney Princess for the 3 year old and Mario Brothers for the 7 year old. Their beds all have matching sheet sets and other comforters as well. The 2 year old has Dora, the 3 year old has Spiderman and the 7 year old has a classic sports theme. They have other sets as well, but these are the preferred.

My boys used to love to wear their dad's old soft tee shirts

As teens they only wore boxers.

matching pajama sets. Both have sheets, a blanket, and a quilt-type bed spread. The 6 yo tends to pull up the blanket and push the sheet down with his feet.

In the summer I'll wear a pair of my soccer shorts and a t-shirt.
In the fall/winter I'll wear sweat pants, sometimes actual PJ pants and a t-shirt.

I have a sheet set and a comforter. Usually I have a blanket between my sheets and comforter but its not on right now.

My brother usually just does boxers.

Jammy bottoms and a t-shirt (or sweatshirt when it's cold) usually. My kiddos outgrew the matching sets at about age six or so.

All of mine have sheets and a comforter on their bed... and a tie blanket they sleep with.

My 3yo will only wear his undies to bed, my 6yo will wear a set of matching pj shorts and shirt, the 13yo wears boxers, and my DD just wears shorts and an old t-shirt.

They all have soft fuzzy blankets.

Our 3yo HATES anything over him, like a sheet or blanket. He didn't even like to be swaddled as an infant. So, he wears long matching PJ's in the cooler months and matching short PJ's in the summer.

Our 13 yo daughter sleeps in big T shirts and yoga pants. As far as I know undies too, LOL. Our 3 yo sleeps in matching PJ tops and bottoms or once in a while a night gown. I just got us all the warmest fleece sheets a few weeks ago. The are so soft and warm!! We all have thin quilts on the beds too.
