The Obsession

It all started innocently enough.  On Tuesday I found a pair of footed Cookie Monster pyjamas on clearance at Sears.  I figured that since Ethan only has a few long sleeved pyjamas that he fit into at the moment, these would help bridge the gap between now and Christmas when he will get a lot more pj's.

I brought them home and got the usual toddler reception to clothes, he ignored me (and the pj's) completely.  that night though, he wanted to wear them.  So we put them on him.  He went to bed and slept.  When he woke up, Mike went to change him and put his daytime clothes on, he kicked up a fuss.  Mike didn't want to fight so he let Ethan wear them through breakfast and I changed him before I took him to daycare.

That night, he wanted to wear the pj's again.  Repeat the story from above, except that I had to promise him we would wear Cookie Monster when he went to bed that night.  Friday he wore his pj's all day (we had the day off for Remembrance Day), and we managed to take them off for 2 hours while they were thrown in the washing machine and cleaned.  It is now Sunday and he is still on the Cookie Monster kick.  We gave him an early bath and got him out of them today, but we had to pack them in his diaper bag so he could wear them after dinner tonight - we are going to his Grandma and Grandpa's for dinner.


  1. Donovan is 5 and has a super-hero pj obsession. Luckily he has Batman and Ironman so we can alternate. I'm thinking maybe Superman for xmas. :) Maybe you should buy about 4 pairs of cookie monster or perhaps he'd accept Elmo...
