Tuesday, Aikman asked if we could have PJ day. Of course, I said that Wednesday could be his PJ day.

So, I was wondering… how many people insist on having their kids fully dressed each day, before school begins? That’s what we typically do…. eat breakfast, get dressed, make bed, brush teeth… and then school starts by 9am.
I’ve always been a follower of the “Fly Lady” mentality that you get ready each morning, all the way down to having your shoes on. Okay, okay… well, everything BUT the shoes! (I’m a Southern girl, and I only wear shoes when I leave the house to go some where. Now, now… I don’t want to be hearing any “barefoot” Southerner jokes in the comments!) This “get ready for the day” mentality has filtered down to us homeschooling, and it kind of keeps us on rhythm (and makes me feel better during the day to know that the beds are made and everything is ready IF we do need to rush out of the house to go somewhere).
So, what do you do? Do you insist on getting your kiddos out of bed and ready for the day before school starts? Or are you relaxed and let them have PJ days often?
Looking forward to hearing what you do!
