  • Thank you for taking the time to compile all these activities to create a memory-filled pajama day. We occasionally enjoy eating breakfast for every meal already, but sadly have never done it in conjunction with a pajama day. No time like the present! Also, we’re looking forward to trying out some of these other ideas. Thanks for the inspiration!
