I was recently reading tips to save time and a bunch of people said they dressed their kids at night for the next day and that is how the kids sleep?
Would you or do you do this? Why or why not?
Um what? I in no way would be comfortable wearing jeans to bed so why would my kid? Not to mention, he's a sweater and only wears an undershirt and underwear to sleep. I have never heard of that before and honestly it's a big UGH factor to me.
Yeah I was a bit skeeved. I know I've let them stay in things if they fell asleep in the car...say a summer dress (like a nightgown) or sweats. I wouldn't do it all the time as it is not comfortable to me to sleep in my regular clothes.
Plus, wouldn't they be all rumpled looking in the morning?
My thought is, if you can't get your kids dressed in the morning on a daily basis you are either 1. Not waking up early enough and/or 2. have 15+ children.
Not in the article, but I know I've read before that people lay out breakfast the night before. Like pour cereal in bowls...and not cover them...ewww.
Seriously if that's how you need to save time you are doing something wrong.
Thats gross. Set the dang alarm for 5 minutes earlier, lay out their clothes the night before, and teach your children to dress themselves!
One of the best things about living in extreme cold is I dont see a bug from Oct till Marchish, so the leaving out of dry cereal would be OK for me for part of the year, if I let my kids eat cereal.
Clothes to bed would be gross. Both my kids are sweaters. They would be soaked when they got up in the morning. Ewwww!!
The only one who gets to wear the same thing out in the morning that they wore to bed is the baby, and that is only if I am having a rough morning and wish I could stay in my PJs I like to dress him the way I wish I was dressed every day.

What???? That is so weird to me. It takes all of 5 minutes to get your kids dressed in the morning. I agree with a PP - every once in a while when T was a toddler and fell asleep in the car I would just carry him up and put him to bed in what he was wearing from that day (assuming it wasn't something uncomfortable to sleep in like jeans.) But it would never cross my mind to dress him for tomorrow at bedtime. Just....what???? LOL

Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
Where is this article? Would love to read it, it must be full of other awesome ideas. Yeesh.
It was a link on another website I was reading and I can't find it now. I will keep looking.
