Big Girl PJ's

Despite the fact that we are still waking up to fresh snow each morning, it has come to our attention that all of the stores have stopped selling footie pajamas. None. Not at Costco, not at Walmart, not anywhere. So we broke down last night and bought Ellie two piece pj's. Cute little shirts with cute little pants, and no zippers. Size 3T.

Last night she wore a pair. While Leif was getting her ready for bed he told her that these were "big girl jammies" and she decided to be proud of that fact. She stood a little taller and said with a nod, "Big girl pj's." This morning when she woke up she told me again that she was wearing "big girl pj's" and again when it was time to get dressed. She looked so sad when I took off her jammies and put her into real clothes for the day. She pointed at them, nodded, and told me sincerely, "Big girl pj's." It was cute, sweet, and sort of sad. I'm afraid, though, that we may never be able to go back to footie jammies again...

I don't know, last year I saw footed pajamas for full size adults, I think it was at Target. I almost bought some!

I had a pair of them when I was in college, so I know they exist... but you can't buy them in Montana after March, I guess!

I wore them when you were little, so there's still hope for Ellie. It's a family tradition! Mom

Yeah I saw some at Kohl's I think for big girls. If you decide to go back to them, let me know. :)
