To think putting on pyjamas after swimming class at 5pm is a bit weird?

My DD has a swim lesson 4:15 to 4:45 and other children change into their pjs after their class. Is this the new thing? Never seen it before. Is this a little early to be in pjs?

I don't think it's weird at all.

I think it sounds great

YANBU. Must be the child version of the "going to Tescos in your pj's brigade."
Save them for when you get home and get some proper clothes on.

YABU. Why get dressed then less than 2 hours later, get changed into pyjamas again. I always do this with my DCs swimming lessons, it's great and they only have to do their teeth before bed.

Yes I would find that odd but some families have quite early bedtimes so I suppose it saves time?

I've seen this when I go swimming (thankfully without DC). I think it's because PJs are easy and quick to get on damp bodies, and means you can skip bath time. The kids at my pool are all in fleecy onesies which seems like a much better idea then getting them back into their dirty uniforms, or putting them into clean clothes for the couple of hours they're up before bed.

As long as they have a shower first I think it's fine. It's a bit grim to go to bed stinking of chlorine.

I think it's weird. Even more so in the summer. I see it all the time, our session is 4-4.30. I feel we need a bath after a visit to the pool. Wash off all the chlorine.

3 of mine come in from school and put a onesie on.

I always do this. Dd has a shower after swimmming straight into pj's.
Makes me cringe when children have a shower then put their school uniform back on and the same underwear!
We sometimes go to the supermarket on the way home.

Yanbu. It's just lazy.

Everyone used to do that at our swimming lessons in a really posh private school at first I thought it was weird, then we joined in and it seemed to save me loads of time in the evening - the kids arrived in uniform, often just shorts and t shirts, and could go home in lovely warm onesies. I'm a complete convert!

LexieSinclair Thu 19-Jan-17 21:38:56

Why weird? I do this with my DC for the reasons Marzipants said. They have a shower first, and they're going straight home afterwards. I think it makes sense?

Peppapogstillonaloop Thu 19-Jan-17 21:39:05

We do this. DS finishes swim at 5.30 had a shower, into pjs and onesie then home. He goes to bed not long after that

PaulAnkaTheDog Thu 19-Jan-17 21:39:12

Nice, judgmental posts here. Very nice...

ewemum Thu 19-Jan-17 21:39:12

I always did this when my little ones class finished at 4.30. Showered her properly and then in to pjs - one less job to do after a late tea.

3boys3dogshelp Thu 19-Jan-17 21:39:19

Always showered before pjs!

Peppapogstillonaloop Thu 19-Jan-17 21:39:23

It's v normal here most do it

StrawberryStar Thu 19-Jan-17 21:39:59

Depends on the age of the child. I do it with dd who's 4 and don't see a problem with it. Most kids in her class do it.

MerylPeril Thu 19-Jan-17 21:40:14

Our lessons were later so it was common - however some kids would get into them poolside - no shower. That's just wrong

AddToBasket Thu 19-Jan-17 21:40:20

Weirder to care. Obviously, they are getting into clothes that suit the activity they are off to (supper and bed)

How can you care? How?

NerrSnerr Thu 19-Jan-17 21:40:28

I don't think it's strange. It's probably stranger to have a shower after swimming and put your dirty clothes back on. It saves getting changed again a couple of hours later. I don't think it's lazy at all.

MaccaPaccaismyNemesis Thu 19-Jan-17 21:40:53

DS get changed into his pj's when comes home from school unless it's bath night. It just makes it easier all round. I'd be putting him in pj's at swimming too tbh

Sounds lovely and cosy and generally brilliant to me.

When my DD was a toddler having 9am Saturday swim classes I used to bring her in her pyjamas rather than get her dressed to drive to swimming and get undressed again. Nobody else did this, and people used to remark on it (not in a snotty way AFAIK, more in a 'hey, cute jammies' way). I could never understand why everyone else didn't. We were always rushing round like blue arsed flies getting up and breakfasted and out on time anyway.
