Put Some Damn Clothes On Your Child

Our subdivision is designed in such a way that it is a short dead-end street flanked by two small rows of townhouses. This is a perfect arrangement for children to play ball and ride their plastic cars in the street, as the only vehicle traffic is residents coming in and out of their driveways.

Over the Christmas holidays, while pulling into and out of our driveway, I took notice of one particular neighbor girl, approximately 4 years old, who is habitually outside. During the two weeks of holidays, every single day I saw this adorable little girl, she was outside in her pajamas, robe and Crocs.

Pajamas. During the late afternoon ! When dinner time was fast approaching ! All day, every day, she sported the same get-up. I doubt she was dressed for the entire holiday, save for celebration events.

Come on. How lazy can one be, not putting clothes on your child during a holiday ? Just leave her in her pajamas for two weeks straight so you don't have to bother taking the time to dress her and do laundry ? Unbelievable.

In addition to this, I often see kids, toddlers and older, being wheeled through the mall in strollers, wearing pajamas, with or without shoes. I just roll my eyes.

HEH. Butter Biscuit was out and about in her footie jammies today -- but it's colder than Hell, and she's learned to take her shoes off in the car...and she's one-and-a-half.
