Mom Confessions: My Tot Goes Out in Pajamas

Cynthia Dermody

mom confessionsIt's time for a Mom Confession -- because, let's face it, we're real mothers and sometimes it doesn't work the way the parenting books say it should.

This Week's Confession:

I only change my 2-year-old son out of his pajamas when I feel like it. Sometimes he stays in his night clothes for the entire day, even if we go to the store or a doctor's appointment, and into the next night. He's comfortable, and I don't care, so what's the big deal? -- anonymous

Is this a matter of hygeine or propriety to you? Should toddlers learn early on the difference between the home and public spheres? Do you go out in your pajamas?

We all have secrets and opinions -- so thanks to this brave mom for sharing her honest thoughts, and thank you for keeping this conversation non-judgemental!
