The revolution’s started; the truth is being spread
It’s all about the PJs – they’re no longer just for bed
Perhaps for you it’s leggings, or your fluffy dressing gown
Whatever comfies float your boat, are the togs to rock the town
I’m clearing out my wardrobe – if you’re stretchy you can stay
Tight skirts – thanks for the good years – but it’s time you went away
My pyjamas never let me down, from being pregnant and beyond
They’re my multi-purpose beauty and of them I’m more than fond
So crawl and play there in your yoga pants, wipe your kid’s nose with your fleece
Be proud of your stained hoody, your tracksuit bottoms are showpiece
Don’t forget to rock your onsie anytime that you desire
We’ll keep it real in loungewear and set this style on fire
No more breathing in to skinny jeans or wishing I looked sleek
So there’s dribble on my shoulder and my boob has sprang a leak
In life this ain’t the crucial stuff so women, mums unite
Post your #notskinnyjeansselfie and join the comfort fight!
Viva La Revolution!
I’m joining How to Survive a Sleep Thief and Hold Me, Don’t Hold Me in their revolution! No more bowing to media pressure or non elasticated waistbands – pyjamas ARE the new skinny jeans – we can make it happen! Let’s take leisure wear international – it’s time for real parents to dominate the internet. Share the messsage and your #notskinnyjeansselfie on Facebook or Twitter, tell your friends, nominate ’em, celebrate the real you in all your comfortable glory* – let’s have some fun!
*Or don’t, that’s fine too of course – you can also just enjoy my silly rhyme and snap of my favourite outfit below – so long as you know the terms Yummy or Slummy Mummy are both equally a bit vile and we are all brilliant whatever we wear (or don’t wear of course #nothingagainstnaturistshere)…
You can also share your finery on How to Survive a Sleep Thief’s Facebook page if you wish, and check out some other international pyjama loving mommas over at Mummy Spits the Dummy and The Joy of Cooking (For Little Assholes).
And to have future posts of mine whizzed directly to your inbox, you can subscribe by clicking the follow blog via email thingy at the top of the right sidebar – that’s the one!
