Illustration Friday: Burning

Burning cheeks: the realization that polka dot footie pajamas are no longer okay to wear to school. My daughter is four. She has pajama day at her preschool. I'm assuming that, at some point, she probably won't think wearing pajamas to school is the best thing ever. When exactly does that happen?!

Hahaha! I love this Bethanie! Your little characters are so precious. Those rosy cheeks are perfect. My girls are grown and out of the house.... but I hear they still wear their pjs out to the store sometime. They never outgrow it :o)

Ha ha Bethanie ....I love this and do you know that when I was at school (a long time ago now) I would sometimes have that awful dream that you have forgotten to wear school uniform and you are the ONLY one in your PJs!!!My cheeks were as pink as the ones in your painting!
I hope your daughter loves her 1st day.

So cute. She has great style in footie pjs. Maybe she'll be a trend setter, and everyone else will ditch their normal school clothes. :) Great illo.

I still have that conversation with my five yr. old most mornings. "pajamas are so great, why wouldn't everybody wear them all the time?", it's hard to argue with that logic. Wonderful illo! Well done!

Funny, so many people have had the pajamas at school nightmare, but we also secretly just want to live in them. :) Thanks everyone...
