Aside from giving my DD a sandwich at 11 weeks and wondering why she didn't eat it... And finding a 3 week old ungrateful of her Christmas presents....

Tonight we've come home just after midnight, and found that both DD's are happily in bed. Beautiful. DD1 is in my bed but that's okay...

I go up there, and she's in leggings and a jumper. Bizarre PJs but again, okay. Until I think... I recognise those clothes... And they look pretty tight!!

They've taken off DD2's clothes and put them on DD1 as pyjamas.

And yes.

Vice versa.

(Happy new year! Especially to 1 year old DD2 in her bedtime party dress!!)

curiousgeorgie Thu 01-Jan-15 01:24:13

I'm not bothered... It's just odd!!

They didn't have baths, MIL can't handle it.

And I left out two pairs of pjs wink

You do, you win! grin

Now go and check that DD1 has circulation in her toes!

I bet they did it on purpose to fuck with your head grin

That's so weird!

SurlyCue Thu 01-Jan-15 01:36:08

Thats another thing on my list for being a naughty granny grin

Ha ha. Love it.

Are they another culture? Maybe it's some sort of unknown tradition? fgrin

Nativity3 Thu 01-Jan-15 01:40:06

A tradition for new year!

bettyboop1970 Thu 01-Jan-15 01:42:39

That's very curious indeed, georgie! Happy new year!

curiousgeorgie Thu 01-Jan-15 01:43:00

Nope, they are from Surrey, same as us!

I've wrestled DD1 out of her 12 month leggings and jumper... Think I'm going to leave DD2 in her sequin dress (lightest sleeper in the world!!) and just hope that the fact that she's swimming in it means it won't be too itchy!!

I also want to know how a 3 week old was "ungrateful"?

skildpadden Thu 01-Jan-15 01:50:22

you think not bathing kids is weird?!

If i were babysitting children for one night i wouldn't bother bathing them either!

This is amateur league weirdness, seriously.

curiousgeorgie Thu 01-Jan-15 01:51:14

I don't think not bathing kids is weird... I'm happy for them to skip a bath for one night!! It was the clothes swap!!

Giraffeseyelashes Thu 01-Jan-15 01:51:22

This is hilarious. I, too, want to hear about the 3 week old's Christmas ungratefulness.

Giraffeseyelashes Thu 01-Jan-15 01:52:09

And whether you disciplined her appropriately.

MiscellaneousAssortment Thu 01-Jan-15 01:52:25

Snort! They are messing with your head!

LeftyLucy Thu 01-Jan-15 01:59:43

You can make this a lovely new family tradition now and do it every New Years Eve!

They were probably playing some sort of game before they fell asleep and MIL didn't to wake them to change them.
