To think mums shouldn't do drop at nursery in their pyjamas?

I know they may have been up all night with a newborn, depressed, etc etc.

But really, I do wonder when I see a flashy subaru 4x4, child immaculately dressed and the mother has an expensive coat on, over pj's. How long does it take to put a pair of jeans on ffs?

I shit you not, I once saw one of the offenders in pj's and heels.

Or is this some high fashion thing I just don't get?

oh I love that. No really I do. Good on them for not being arsed and for having the time not to have to get dressed. Wish I could!

Are you sure they are not just those baggy jersey slouchy trousers?

They should do what I do, and sleep in their clothes and nobody would know. - I don't mean jeans, I mean causual yoga stuff.

Ooook??? hmm

Maybe she was ill?
Just managed to get her child dressed, and about to go back home and collapse to bed?

What does it matter what car she drives?

Do you think a mum on the breadline is a better candidate for the "PJ-look"?

Now I'd love to be that mum, but, as Dd1 started nursery this week, I found myself getting up mega early, selecting an outfit, doing my hair and putting on make-up. WTF? hmm
I'm sure this will pass!

It's not just one person QS, it's a few of them.

Oh there was a thread on this recently, prompted by something in Ireland I think, where headteachers were begging parents not to do the school run in pjs.

I think it's horrible actually - slovenly and lazy and generally disgusting. Not to mention dirty. Perhaps I am too uptight?

I have seen this increasingly , there was a thread on it here a while back and it made me notice mums with immaculate hair names, the rest and then PJs.

why do you care?

leothelioness Thu 11-Sep-08 13:07:04

so what if they are in a polka dot bikini or pjs, why does it matter to you what they wear anyway?

lazy cows

It was all the rage here, NOT ME, to wear PJs and have a full face of make up, shoes etc. People in Belfast did it so others copied. Why I have no idea.

Quattrocento - you need to chill out! "dirty" LOL

I suspect if it's women in very expensive car wtih immaculate hair then they are making a statement that they don't have to go out to work and are back off to bed for a wee nap before luncheon with the girls. Lucky swines

why does it matter?

wasabipeanut Thu 11-Sep-08 13:08:45

Doris it will pass believe me!

I find it odd that someone would be arsed to do hair and make up but not actually get dressed.

Trying to make a statement perhaps.

TheDevilWearsPrimark Thu 11-Sep-08 13:09:08

I just wonder why, it takes less than a minute to put on a pair of trousers. Or why not take the pj bottoms off and wear the heels and lovely coat with nothing underneath?

EffiePerine Thu 11-Sep-08 13:09:21

Do any MNers actually do the school run in their PJs? Can;t imagine it myself (particuarly can't see me heading any past the front door without me bra on)

Upwind Thu 11-Sep-08 13:09:23

I hear it is a fashion thing - apparantly these women always drive 4x4s and wear designer coats over the pjs. And have somehow had time to do their hair and makeup grin

EffiePerine Thu 11-Sep-08 13:09:53

TDWP: becasue the last option would make you a slapper wink

zippitippitoes Thu 11-Sep-08 13:10:05

its not exactly harming any one

subaru forester nice car at least the turbo is

but not very flashy

it is a drivers car smile

Quattrocento Thu 11-Sep-08 13:10:05

But it is dirty isn't it? I mean they are going out without having a shower - unwashed by definition.

katierocket Thu 11-Sep-08 13:10:31

because they are making a STATEMENT (see below)
that they are too rich/posh/pampered to give a shit!

2beornot2be Thu 11-Sep-08 13:10:31

Why does it bother you so much its not like they are making you wear your Pj's to drop your child off.

My friend used to go to Mcdonalds in her nightie and dressing gown at the weekends she didnt care

Hmmm - I don't see the problem with it tbh. I never get dressed up in the morning at all. At dd2's school you do get these perfectly groomed mums in boden wrap dresses at 8.30am. Usually I am very careful with my appearance but not at that time when I am trying to remember two sets of paraphernalia for two children, and more often than not always forgetting something! But if I was going to a school play or something I would make an effort.
