I love SheHooMustWearKevlar, I really do, but I live in fear of the 'Family Christmas Pyjama Parade' she insists on every year!!
It's a quaint idea, I have to give her that, but then perhaps 'Quaint' is not the correct word that might be used to ascribe to our eclectic family....
Now Nana's Tiny Boy looks really cute in his PJs annually, he is skinny and rangy and could actually pass as The Christmas Elf!
Tiny Girl has only featured in one of the many Christmas Pyjama Parade Snapshots so far, and obviously she can look too cute for words.
But there are some members of the family to whom the word 'cute' cannot possibly be attributed..
For starters, the online shop from whence cometh the Jarmas, is somewhere in the heart of Shanghai where the people are biologically tiny and the PJ sizing is totally crazy!! Some of us (no names mentioned )need a triple X in Texas sizing, but the Shanghai sizing really needs to stretch to Octagon X in order to cater to today's average proportions.
And all clothing from this particular delightful Christmas Shop should bear the label 'guaranteed to shrink' !! It's really not a problem I suppose because the seven year old Family Elf fits nicely in Grandpas pyjamas after the first wash!! The labels also bear the fire hazard warning 'Garments must be tight fitting to avoid fire hazards'. And believe me these fashion statements 'fit where they touch'.
SheHooMustWearKevlar also has a quirky sense of humour! The first family Christmas colour choice was red and white stripes, can you possibly imagine us clad in very clingy red and white striped little numbers, sitting en masse on the family staircase
The mind boggles...
Then there was the green and white stripe year, the Christmas ornament pattern year, and 2022 even stretched to the burgundy and white snowflakes of the University of Carolinas football team - the Gamecocks!!!
I dread to think what Kevlar Girl has in store for us this Christmas!!
