My SO and I find it acceptable to come home from whatever and just go afterpants. After work, school, shopping, errands, dates, anytime we step in the door. Especially in the summer…even if we're wearing shorts. We've been doing this in some form since we started dating...now we're pretty much at 90-95% afterpants when we're at home...including our two toddlers.
We always wear pants when there are "outsiders" over, or when we need to answer the door. But yeah, we just came home from a museum, and everyone took off their pants. Couch looks like a family of pants.
Everyone's wearing shirts and even underwear…just no socks or pants. No nudity, but it isn't like we're comfortable going outside to the store like this.
Is this normal? Is this weird enough to be damaging to toddlers? Anything I should be worried about for the future? What is the pants situation at your place?
