My eight year old son came home from school the other rday and told me about a party he was going to have at school. His teacher is always looking for new ideas and fun things to do with the kids, and will present ideas for the class to select. The latest winner is a pyjama party.
Me: "How can you have a pyjama party at school? You don't wear pyjamas at school." Him: "Dad, we can wear our pyjamas to school from when we get out of bed. All we have to do is not change clothes in the morning, and we're ready." Me: "You can't wear pyjamas to school! It’s too cold outside!" Him: "Dad, I can wear a coat on top of my pyjamas." Me: "What about your legs?" Him::"Dad, I can wear joggers on top of my pyjama bottoms. I will stay warm." Me: "You will get your pyjamas filthy dirty. I’ve seen your classroom. It's not that clean." Him: "Dad, I can change when I get home, and take a bath too. I have lots of pyjamas, so I can throw these right into the dirty clothes pile." Me: "It sounds like you have this all figured out." Him: "Dad, it's not that complicated." Me: "Well, it sounds like fun. You’ll have to tell me all about it." Him: "Dad, you should come. You have pyjamas. You should come to our pyjama party." Me: "I have to work.” Him: “Dad, you can take some time off. Send your boss an email right now." Me: "I'll see what I can do." Him: "Dad, you are either in or you are out. Are you in?" And that is how I got roped into my son's pyjama party, in my pyjamas. No photographs, please.
