my mom has always had a thing with pajamas and making sure that myself and my sister were clothed properly for slumber time.
whenever we were sleeping over a friends house when we were younger my mom was all, "make sure you have something nice to sleep in! don't embarrass me!"
as if wearing mismatched pajamas would cause the fellow PTA moms to look down on her.
who knows, maybe they did.
well, this obsession with making sure my sister and i had nice pjs has continued through our adult lives.
a few years back i went on a family vacation with my dear friend teen (her parents, siblings, etc), and my mother, just as i expected, brought up the pajama situation.
"you can't just wear old t-shirts to sleep. you need pants alexa, or a night gown - something modest."
[random fact #72 about me, i HATE sleeping with pants/shorts on]
so right before i left for teen's family vacation my mom purchased me a new nightgown - but not a cute/sexy nightgown, i'm talking grandma style here.
funny thing is i still have the nightgown.
muffin actually calls it my mui mui because it's quite possibly the most unflattering article of clothing ever. but i like to wear it after i get out of the shower while i'm doing my hair/makeup and i'm in a situation (i.e. traveling) where it's not proper to walk around in my underwear.
it's a shame though to think that my mom actually believes i wear nice pajamas it to bed.
sorry ma, but i sleep naked 9 out of 10 nights and never ever wear pants.
it's like the ultimate passive aggressive move to my proper pajama upbringing.
so, what do you sleep in?
