In this strange spring of social distancing, there’s no use keeping it a secret: We’re all wearing our pajamas all day. ADMIT IT. Unless you are one of the living saints of 2020 — the healthcare workers, sanitation workers, grocery store workers, etc. — who are still physically going to work every day in order to keep the rest of us alive (in which case, bless you and everyone else should donate to support your work at one of these options) you are 100% spending your days in daytime pajamas.
Then, at some point, you transition to your nighttime pajamas. You know it’s true. I’m doing it, my boss is doing it, all of our kids are certainly doing it. Because for parents who are now stuck at home with kids whose schools and daycares have closed, the one thread of ease we can cling to in this hectic mess of feeding and homeschooling and Zoom calls and frantically trying to work while kids climb upon us is this fact: Real pants have gone the way of 2019. We’ll see you on The Outside, jeans. This quarantine spring, the only fashion keeping us going is pajamas. And that goes for our kids, too.
And when the best self care we can manage from the isolation of our homes is to take comfort in the little things — a slobbery toddler kiss, a bedtime cuddle, an extra-large home-brewed coffee, a bright butterfly print — it’s high time we added festive kid pajamas to our bedtime/morning cheer-up routines. With the options we’ve rounded up ahead, that’ll be easy (and delightful, and affordable), courtesy of hand-picked prints we love, from a Hanna Andersson rainbow to Posh Peanut poppies and more. So order away, suit ’em up in style, and cuddle on.
