In a Jam with RevGals....Friday Five Time!

As the weather cools off into a lovely fall, my son and daughter are rediscovering their joy in cozy footed "pajammies"

Without going to TMI land, share with us your sleepwear memories and preferences....

1. What was your favorite sleeping attire as a child? And did you call them pjs, pajamas (to rhyme with llamas), pajamas (to sort of rhyme with bananas), jammies, or ???

Funny, I have no idea what I specifically wore, but am certain it fell into the same category of my choices today-- Nothing to confine, wrap around, make you feel bound in and less than free. HATE that feeling.... Regarding pronunciation, PJs or pyjamas, to rhyme with llamas.

2. Favorite sleepwear put on your own little ones, or perhaps those you babysat? (Bonus points if you made it).

No answer here--though wee bitty pjs with feet are darn cute.

3. How about today-do you prefer nightgown, pajamas...?

Cotton tee, stretchy fleece shorts. OR, in coldest winter, a men's flannel nightshirt. V-neck, no elastic at cuffs, shorter than women's (important when you're 5'2!). Rather Jack Be Nimble, but it works!

4. Silky smooth or flannel-y cozy?

Cotton until the depths of winter then flannel. Also depends on the sheets. Flannel on flannel is like sleeping in velcro!

5. Socks or bare feet?

I agree, since we got flannel sheets the one pair of real flannel pajamas I have are too hot and make it hard to roll over in bed. Great play!
