Seeing pajamas through the eyes of my children reminds me how much I loved them way back when.

I wonder what her response would be to the recently proposed ban on pajamas in public Louisiana from a county commissioner in Louisiana…and it turns out that the January 21st installment of the Wall Street Journal Sentiment Tracker was wondering about the response to the legislation as well. Powered by NetBase, this week’s ST looked at the social media reaction on Twitter and Facebook to all things pajama, and found that almost 42% of social media users think it is simply unacceptable to wear pajamas out in public (I better tell my daughter her days of pjs outside are numbered…).
