The pediatricians office is no place for adults in pajamas

The kids had a pediatric appointment this afternoon so I yanked them out of school, threw them in the car, and off we went.

As we pull into the office parking lot, I see a high school-age girl and her mother heading in. The girl was wearing plaid pajama pants and I remember thinking to myself, "That's so stupid. Why is it so hard to get dressed before leaving the house? I don't care how sick you feel, you look ridiculous." Judge judge judge.
Anyway, we make our way in, the boys sit down, and the pajama girl's mom and I jockeyed for position at the reception desk.

After all the paperwork was complete I sat down next to Alexander, when I happen to glance up and noticed that not only was the pajama girl wearing her jammies, so was her mother. And not only that, she rolled in with her slippers on as well.

Are you kidding me? You and your high school-age daughter can't possibly be bothered to put on a pair of jeans? Was the thought of peeling yourself from the couch and putting on clothing you shouldn't be ashamed to be seen in public in such a hardship?

I don't understand this little trend. More and more I'm spotting girls, guys, MOTHERS, going to the grocery store, the mall, and now the pediatricians office, with their pajamas on.
So now people are stupid AND lazy.

I weep for the future.


  1. You've tried for 5 years to try to get your boyfriend to marry you? Ummm.. have a clue - it isn't happening. And if it does happen, it won't last. Why not find someone who really loves you and wants to live w/you and help raise your kids. Lots of nice guys out there who won't make you wait 5 years.

  2. I have to disagree here. What harm is done by these two following the latest fashion trend? I myself am not bold enough to buck convention and wear my pjs to the Peds but for those who choose to live life authentically and not acccording to some invisible rulebook, I say "thanks for the inspiration".
