The great thing about having awesome pajamas is that there is less negotiation required to get you ready for bed.
The not-so-great thing about having awesome pajamas is that there is more negotiation required to get you ready for school.
The great thing about pajama day at school is that you get to wear your awesome pajamas to school and there is no negotiation required to get you ready for school.
The not-so-great thing about pajama day is that you think it should be every day. Now that you have experienced the bliss that is wearing your pajamas to school, no manner of negotiation is effective in getting you out of them.
“Buddy, you can’t wear your pajamas to school! …except on pajama day. Pajamas are for bedtime, not school! …except on pajama day. Today is NOT PAJAMA DAY!!”
Pajama Day has blown a gigantic hole in my morning negotiation strategies. If you show up at school in pants and a pajama top this should be viewed as an acceptable compromise. Or at least with a dose of sympathy and good humor!
