dd went to school yesterday with no knickers and it was pe. How funny is that.

Sorry that"s not funny. You're DD was probably mortified. How old is she?

HPsauceonbaconbuttiesmmm Thu 19-Sep-13 09:07:51

I agree. Not remotely funny.

I've heard of this several times at DD's school, the kids weren't mortified, they just put their shorts on & went commando!

One of DD's friends came to play and when getting changed into a princess dress realised she was wearing her big brother's pants. Her sister had been one of the knickerless PE kids the previous day, their mum was mortified, but they didn't care!

you re DD was probably mortified.

UR NO she has a sense of humour and thought it was funny. The teachers said at least it shows she is independent. she is 5.

DD did this in pre-prep. Twice . A couple of the girls in her class did.

My son used to go without underwear, he had decided underpants were uncomfortable!

someone in dds reception class did this in the summer term, when she was wearing a summer dress which was a bit short!
teacher got her to put on her pe shorts underneath.

Pretty common I would have thought, and quite funny as long as child doesn't mind!

I was just thinking of my youngest DD and I know even at 5 she would have been really upset.

VanitasVanitatum Thu 19-Sep-13 15:18:16

Glad your dd wasn't upset. I can still remember the horror of sitting in morning assembly and realising I wasn't wearing pants. Mortified all day! We were staying at my grans for the week and I think she assumed (fairly!) that I could reliably dress myself aged six or seven..

PeterParkerSays Thu 19-Sep-13 15:22:57

Depends how your DD felt and whhether other kids found out hmm

I still remember the girl in my class at Junior school who came to school in her swim suit as it was swimming first thing, but forgot to put her knickers in her changing bag, and who got chased round the playground by both boys and girls trying to lift her skirt up. sad

Glad your dad wasn't upset but not very nice for other children or teacher to have to see when she changed

freephone Thu 19-Sep-13 15:59:18

to all who think dd was upset she wasn't and if she was I woulnt be finding it funny and posting it on mumsnet because that would be wrong.
whos dad wasn't upset anyway?????

Pagwatch Thu 19-Sep-13 16:06:04

What the jeff!

Why is a five year old with no pants on 'not very nice for other children or teacher to have to see'. What exactly is offensive about a five year olds bum?

Doingakatereddy Thu 19-Sep-13 16:09:59

Well this threads a bundle of wierd.

Why did you let dd go to school with no knickers, why post it on mumsnet as its plainly not funny, dd may get teased fr years and what in the name of all that is holy is 'not nice' about a kids bum?

Poledra Thu 19-Sep-13 16:14:31

Pag I adore 5-yo DD3's bum. It's all lovely and peachy. Perfect for a squidge (though DH put his cold hands on her bum the other night and she was not amused grin)

Pagwatch Thu 19-Sep-13 16:15:01

I don't think it's unusual actually. Dd was getting herself dressed for school at 4 and I never thought to check she had pants on until she forgot them. Several of her friends did it.
None of them were ever teased, let alone for years.

Pagwatch Thu 19-Sep-13 16:15:56

Getting changed in a hurry after swimming and gym seemed to result in occasional pant omissions too.

Pagwatch Thu 19-Sep-13 16:16:53

Yy. Small bottoms are hard not to like. grin

Poledra Thu 19-Sep-13 16:17:44

I don't think it's unusual either - one of little girls in DD1's class arrived for school on her bike one morning. As she got off her bike, she told her mum that there was something wrong with the bike as her bum was sore. A quick check revealed the lack of knickers which explained the discomfort on the bike. We all thought it was funny...

My DD went to school once with no knickers on. I didnt know until she came back and was getting changed and had someone elses knickers on! I asked her whos they were. and she replied 'my teacher gave them to me because i didnt have any on and she saw when i was sitting down' luckily her teacher did this discreetly.
I was gobsmacked but DD wasnt bothered in the slightest!!!! So now i check EVERY morning!

tallulah Thu 19-Sep-13 16:26:53

Poledra I just spat tea all over the pc (and me) reading your post. Rest of the family are like confused

Poledra Thu 19-Sep-13 16:40:53

grin I trust you were laughing at the commando bike riding, tallulah, and not shocked at my desire to squidge DD3's bottom?

tallulah Thu 19-Sep-13 16:51:31

grin

Yes it was the commando bike riding (but we do the squidgy thing with DD (6) too)

DD (yr 2) came home from school the other day and said she'd had no pants on all day, think she normally wears clean ones to bed and keeps them on for the next day. Had slept naked the previous night so just forgot in the morning. She's a super sensitive child so I thought she'd be mortified but she didn't seem bothered in the slightest, said she'd told her 2 best friends but they were good at secrets. I think it's really common (and kind of sweet as long as nobody picks on them about it)
