Amazon’s Top Rated Satin Pajamas are a Dream

In September, my oldest, Maddie, started 8th grade, and we began a few whirlwind weeks of figuring out where she would go to high school. There were open houses, campus tours, entrance exams, and all the prep that accompanies it.

She had her heart set on one school in particular for years, and here we were, actually committing to it. I had that moment all moms know well, where your heart simultaneously soars and aches as you watch your baby leave behind one chapter and enter another.

Maybe I’m in the in the minority here, but I think teenage girls are the best. My daughter and her friends are lovely, smart, confident young women. They are eons more emotionally mature than I was at that age, don’t take themselves so seriously, and have great senses of humor. 

Here we are on New Years Eve:

Watching her come into her own, especially in such a challenging year, has been pure joy. But I realized that the next few years are about to fly by even more, so I suggested we find something to do together, every week, like a standing date.

Since we both love true crime and murder mysteries, we decided to watch something in that genre every Monday night, and because her sense of humor is as dark as mine, she started to call it “Murder Monday.”

Over the last several months, we watched everything Netflix and On-Demand had to offer. But by the time the holidays came around, we weren’t, as Maddie says, “feeling very murder-y.”

So now, we’re watching The Crown. lol. 

We look forward to our time together all week. One morning, she was heading out to school, lamenting about how boring it was going to be and how Mondays “are the worst,” but then turned, did a little dance and said, “Oh! Murder Monday!!”

Keep Them Talking

One of the best pieces of advice I ever received for raising teenage girls, was, “Just keep them talking.”

And that’s what we do on our Monday nights. She’ll talk for hours about anything and everything. I get all the “tea,” and I soak up every minute of it.

Like clockwork, at 8pm last Monday, I changed into my pajamas and headed to her bedroom. When she saw me, she said, “Um, I LOVE your pajamas! Can you get me a pair?”

— Record screeches. —

“You want a pair of MY pajamas?” I asked, flattered and stunned.

It’s important to understand that we are style opposites.  She is painfully cooler than me. 

She wears Doc Martins and band tee shirts, and I’m in … J.Crew and LOFT. She thinks I have great style “for a mom.”

So, of course, I immediately pulled out my phone and ordered her a few pairs because, THESE ARE THE GREATEST PAJAMAS EVER! And, I can’t remember the last time she actually liked something I was wearing for herself. 

Amazon's Top Rated Satin Pajamas

Silk Satin Pajamas: Under $30 XS – XXL 

They feel indulgent but are under $30. I’m super impressed with how they wear and wash. Their quality for the price is incredible.  And I’m not alone in my love for them, they have thousands of 5 Star Reviews on Amazon

When I like something, I tend to go all in, so I ordered multiples.

I have pink (above), white and navy. Maddie is wearing the teal (you can’t tell in the picture, but it’s a gorgeous color) and has a black pair.

I’m wearing a large, and Maddie is a small. We are both about 5’10.

Love what you shared. Thank you so much! I have a 20-year-old daughter and we love to do things together. Very heartwarming!

I have a 25 year old and she still loves to come home and “hang out” with me. Our thing after our cozy book reading days ( Little Women, the Little House series and many others) was The Gilmore Girls. As it was full of allusions ( cultural, historical, literacy, etc) we had a fun game of it. She’s in Austin about to begin her last semester of law school but pending testing will be here tomorrow for a few days before classes start. Based on your recommendations, I ordered the champagne color of the PJs. Perfect for my petite petite self! So... I ordered the maroon/burgundy and blue is on the way! Tomorrow, my girl will of course NEED a pair and she is 5’8! They came quickly, too! Field tested and petite approved!

That's so sweet - enjoy your time with her this week! And thank you for letting me know that they work for petites too, I saw that in some of the amazon reviews but it's nice to hear it from you ladies here.

This is why I love this group, I started the same similar thing with my daughter in high school, I would talk with her we would have a Starbucks date and eventually all her friends would always ask, hey Crystals mum, can I ask you a question?? I would make time for them. She is now 27 and like my best friend, we talk, do target runs together sipping Starbucks and she has discovered my Paige jeans, not sure I’m happy about that one, might not see them again.....

My 10 year old and I do the Target/Starbucks date every Tuesday and it's so fun. It's nice to know these small little moments are building on a foundation for a life time of friendship once they get older.

Mother/daughter time is the best! My kiddo is in grade 7 so a similar age and we love our girls nights! You and your daughter look adorable!

Thank you! Wish I started this in 7th grade, it's made navigating all the external stuff so much easier.

I love the relationship you share with your daughter! I raised two boys, and although we are close, I’m pretty sure it’s not the same as raising a daughter. They have no interest in silky pajamas or manis and pedis. Haha

LOL. I have two brothers who love my mom something fierce, as I'm sure your boys do, but you're right, it's a little different with your girls. :)
