Yay For Lazy Saturday (In Which She’s Still in her PJ’s at 1:00 in the Afternoon)

I should feel guilty.  I should.  It’s a gorgeous day here in our neck of the woods. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping.  The children are happily playing with cardboard boxes or running with scissors.  I am blessed beyond measure.  And to top it all off, I was still in my jammies by 1:05 in the afternoon.  And that’s important to note.  You know why?  Because I have friends that just LOVE to rib me about staying in my PJ’s for far too long on the weekends.

But, here’s the thing:  Sometimes, it’s simply a matter of lack-of-time-to-get-out-of-them.  Because Sweetdogs need supervised pit-stops.  And Sweetgirls that like to attempt pit-stops all by themselves and then wipe ALL BY THEMSELVES also need to be supervised. And Sweetboys that grow an inch per day need frequent refueling. And there is laundry to do from the attempts at The Wiping. And there is wiping from the Missed Pit-stops. And, and, and…

Now, don’t get me wrong. I thank God daily, as often as I can, for the opportunity to be a mama and a wife.  I know there are Sweetladies all over God’s green Earth with hearts breaking for those very opportunities.  I also know that far too many of my friends, without kidlets, especially, just don’t understand that sometimes, just sometimes, I’m still in my jammies at three in the afternoon because I haven’t had a spare 7 minutes to take a shower.  Or make a pit-stop of my own.  Or, you know… Get out of my PJ’s.  Oh, yes indeed!

  1. Thanks so much for visiting my site! And you know how much I love a Saturday in PJs until 1. :) My theory is this…I get up at 6:30 six days a week, and all of those six days we’re rushing around to get to school or church (and my husband’s a pastor and I’m in choir so we’re there extra early). We need a day of rest…and for us, that happens to be Saturday! No shame or guilt here!

    • Oh, Monica, it’s true. Isn’t it? We get up at 6:30 every morning, as well. Getting the opportunity to just not rush is a gift. :) I really enjoyed your blog and look forward to reading more!

  2. My sweet Misindeedy! You are a girl after my own heart! My kids are twice or more the ages of yours and I often still find myself in PJs far into the afternoon. She’d the guilt girl! Afternoon PJs are a staple of motherhood and wifedom and pet lover and domestic goddess. Embrace it!!
