It goes a little something like this:
"Moooooom, I'm hot."
Mom just about sleep walks into child's room and takes off child's long-sleeved, polar fleece pajamas she told dad not to put on her in the first place, but can't find a short sleeved pair of pajamas.
Mom proceeds to produce a number of very good, short-sleeved sleeping options, albeit not pajamas, all met with wails that they are not "nighttime clothes", they are (obviously, mom) "daytime clothes".
Mom kicks herself for ever defining the difference long ago when trying to convince her 3 year old not to wear pajamas to school. Tries briefly to explain why in this VERY instance it is ok to wear daytime clothes at night to hysterical child. Then, comes to her senses.
Dad arrives on the scene to produce some "shark shirt" he swears will magically stop the hysteria. It does indeed get the child to stop screaming about the shirt situation, but she moves to wailing about the fact that it's not a dress and now she has no pants on.
Mom goes back to bed not caring what the child wears to sleep, and proceeds to watch (on the video monitor*) Dad put the long-sleeved, polar fleeced pajamas that CAUSED this whole drama back on child who then rolls over, gets comfy and drifts back to sleep.
