A Window into Life in the Suburbs


"Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these." Luke 12:27 (NIV)

Uniforms in Bed

Last week, a couple of ladies I know mentioned that they put their kids in uniforms before going to bed so that there are no big hassles trying to get kids to dress in the morning. I know from experience that the mornings can be the most stressful time of the day for mum so I'm not unsympathetic.
However, thinking it over, (I'm a bit slow) I've come to have some questions over this.
Now, I'm not a fastidious mum at all nor do I care much for ironing... I rarely do any ironing, quite frankly. So creasy uniforms don't bother me in the slightest.
But I was wondering what the long term consequence of doing that would be. I'm a big picture person and I'm more concerned about the kiddies getting into habits that they will have trouble getting out of as they get older.
Or is it something that they grow out of? Or do you have to wean them off the habit?

I'd like people to comment especially mums with older children or adult children. Like to know your thoughts. I'm not sitting in judgement of anyone here, just curious about how all this works in your family.
