Why Matching Pajamas is One of Our Favorite Holiday Traditions
This month, we are all about embracing traditions – both big and small. And last year, I unexpectedly stumbled upon a simple tradition that brought me an equally unexpected amount of joy.
Let me back up a bit… First, I never thought I’d be that person to embrace family Christmas pajamas. I personally thought it was a little cheesy when I would see these matching family pajamas during the holiday season. But, that was B.E. — or before Elle, if you will. And as I’m sure many of you can attest, opinions pre-kids can be very different from opinions post-kids. I’m not sure what it is about parenthood, but suddenly you find yourself doing all sorts of silly things!
So, last year, I bit the bullet and ordered the colorful striped matching pajamas you see pictured here. And you know what? Wearing these matching mommy and daughter pajamas brought me an inordinate amount of joy! Truly, I smiled each time we put them on.
This year, I expect the tradition to bring even more joy! Elle will officially be a year and a half old next week. She is at such a cute stage! She loves clothes, shoes, purses, and so on and so forth. Basically, she’s into all the girly things – aka everything mommy is into. She notices and points out when she is matching with me. So, I can’t wait to see how she reacts to our matching PJs this year!
While I can still fit into my Christmas pajamas from last year, she obviously can’t! Haha. So, I’ve been on the search for some festive options for us this year. Since I’ve been on the hunt, I figured I’d share my findings with you.
