Are there any hygienic or medical reasons for kids to wear pajamas, as opposed to clothes, for sleeping? Yes. While it might seem reasonable to put a child to bed in comfy, loose-fitting clothes, there are two good reasons not to: Hygiene and fire. Kids come in contact with a lot of bacteria during the day, and an evening bath can rinse some of those microbes away, decreasing the risk of infection, Dr. Lisa M. Asta, a San Francisco pediatrician and spokeswoman for the American Academy of Pediatrics, wrote in an e-mail.

The summer before Megan Walburn's senior year at Washington College she met someone at a cookout who worked at WJZ. Soon there was a writing test. Then a gig freelancing. She has stayed at WJZ (our media partner) for the last five years producing, and now executive produces the network's 11 p.m. news broadcast. "News is ever-changing, which means my job never gets boring," said Walburn, 26, a Brewers Hill resident. "In some jobs, people watch the clock from 9-5. At my job, I find myself wishing for more time in the workday.

All over America, Boomers are climbing back into their pj's.In 1968, when Rex Reed published a collection of celebrity interviews called "Do You Sleep in the Nude?" it was still a marginally racy question to ask a stranger -- but when the stranger was under 30, the answer was often yes. In 1978, when Jill Clayburgh got out of bed in her T-shirt in "An Unmarried Woman," millions of women in the audience identified immediately. Like them, she was young, attractive, with-it, and didn't own a nightgown.

Planting season takes on a different character every year. This year's rain produced prodigious peony crops. It gave us backyard gardeners not much time to plant right after the frost date in early May. Either rain fell, or the ground was too saturated to plant. The skies cleared for the weekend of May 20. Local nurseries swarmed with customers at early hours, and almost every household in the neighborhood had someone out weeding or planting. By Monday, May 23, I had to restrain myself from going out into the garden immediately after breakfast.

Question: : Do you know about the "wet pajama" treatment for childhood eczema? Wet a pair of cotton pajamas and wring them out. Put them on the child, then layer a pair of dry fleece pajamas over the top. Leave both pairs of pajamas on overnight. The child's body heat creates a layer of high humidity that hydrates the skin. As a physician, I treat older patients, but this approach cleared our son's severe eczema in three days. Answer: : Thanks for sharing this unusual treatment.

WHEN LONG-TIME buddies and youthful entrepreneurs Jon Ressler and Chad Weaver decided to sell novelty slippers this holiday season, they figured they'd need something to set their kiosk apart from all the other carts that crowd the malls at this time of year. Certainly, the employees would wear the big, fluffy slippers while at work. But when Ressler's girlfriend made the outlandish suggestion that the employees wear pajamas, too, Ressler jumped on the idea. "She was kidding. She didn't think we would actually do it," said Ressler.

Like many young girls her age, Kamryn Lambert was particular about her clothes. She liked bright colors and nice fabrics, and they had to be stylish. Whenever she went to the hospital for treatment of leukemia, Kamryn took along her latest favorite outfit, and wore it in the hallways, much to the amusement of the nurses and doctors. "It endeared her to them," said Kamryn's grandmother, Debi Katzenberger, who yesterday recalled the horror with which the 9-year-old girl greeted the drab hospital gowns the children were provided.

Guilty. Whatever the jury decides regarding the charges against Michael Jackson, after yesterday, we'll forever find King Crazo guilty on two counts: jaw-droppingly awful fashion sense and unfathomably bad judgment. What man accused of molesting a boy in his oxygen-fortified bedroom comes to court in pajamas? Jackson had tried to call in sick to court yesterday, and so the pajamas and bed-head look might have been aimed at convincing the judge that he really was ill. Or perhaps because the judge ordered him to court in one hour, after clearly not buying the pop star's sore back excuse, Jackson didn't have time to put together his usual dapper trial look.

The best part about Internet shopping is that you can shop till you drop from all of your favorite stores without having to wear shoes or look for a parking space. The worst part, we've found, is not being able to know how that dress or pair of flip-flops or smart little hat will look on you before you pay shipping and handling. Coach has come up with the perfect solution to this problem. Click a handbag that interests you on www.coach.com, and select an option called "Try This Bag On."

In the three years that she battled leukemia, Kamryn Lambert spent more time at the University of Maryland Hospital for Children in Baltimore than she did at home with her family. When she was home in Pasadena, Kami, as she was called, would often accompany her maternal grandmother, Debi Katzenberger, on shopping trips for pajamas. "She rarely ever got to go to school, so her way of expressing herself and being able to always be fashionable was to always buy really fun or cool pajamas when she returned to the hospital," Katzenberger recalled last week.

On Monday I had to wear pajamas down to breakfast. No, it wasn’t because I was ill. No, it wasn’t because I had no clean clothes. And no, it wasn’t because I was feeling lazy. It was because I had to keep myself from going out into the garden right after breakfast. For the previous two mornings I’d bolted out the back door the minute I bolted down breakfast. I didn’t read the paper first. I didn’t do the word scramble I normally do before starting the day. I barely combed my hair.

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, a Holocaust fable, is meant to be a heartbreaker about the moral lessons to be gleaned from the friendship of two 8-year-olds, a Jewish concentration-camp inmate named Shmuel (Jack Scanlon) and the Nazi commandant's son, Bruno (Asa Butterfield). It plays like a cautionary tale about the perils of naivete. Although John Boyne's book has become a middle-school favorite (and the plot does work better in print), I found the movie impossibly basic and sanitized as a "never again" parable of the Final Solution - and simply wrongheaded as a story about children.

New York-- --Actress Megan Lawrence is wearing a hip pink Indian dress over white cotton pants. Her lips, however, sport retro red lipstick, the same shade as her perfectly manicured nails. Her lips and nails say "Gladys Hotchkiss," the 1950s secretary she portrays in the hit Broadway revival of The Pajama Game. The rest of her getup -- which includes fuzzy animal slippers -- is pure Megan Lawrence. Her husband, also a Broadway actor, describes her as "a college-dropout hippie who made good."

Boots never ride into the sunsetIt's fun to try to figure out why fads take hold and hang on. With some, there doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason for their sudden burst, and they usually fade as fast as they appear. Slap-bracelets are a recent example. But cowboy boots are different.Women have worn cowboy boots for some time, but it's hard to miss their increasing popularity.One suspects that the boot's success with women has less to do with its sturdiness than with its origins. It's part and parcel of a romantic American vision.
