Is it just me?

Or is it the hottest spring ever? We are already in the 80's- 90's!!!

I dug this up: http://www.pregnancy.org/article/summer-safety-keep-your-child-safe-and-happy#comment-1934

A good reminder for the upcoming months! I didn't know kids needed hydrated that often LOL! Or I forgot... either way...

Good reminders! I wish I could get Tommy to wear sunglasses, he hates them! And hats are lucky if they stay on. But he knows no hat either shade or inside. There is usually a protest about that too

Hats are a no go for my boys too... Dalton Especially rips them off as soon as they are on. Sunglasses? I have never even bought them a pair. I know they will be shredded before they even leave the house! LOL! Maybe a visor? I dunno... lol

You girls aren't alone. Hats tend to be hit and miss around here. I always get groans when I'm trying to do the sunscreen too. You would think I was torturing them.

OMG the sunblock! YES he gets all pissy about it! Its like pure torture. Hence why he has the worst farmers tan. seriously every day its more and more pronounced. I will have to take a picture of him in just a diaper this weekend to show you girls. But I am glad we arent alone in the non hat-non sunglass wearing kiddo! He can be very particular!

My kids are all half Indian (from India), so they have awesome tanning abilities. No matter how much sunblock, they all end up like bronze gods and goddess by the time the summer is done. A very far cry from my very white, only freckles Irish skin Lol

Noah is definitely a white boy... fish belly white to be exact... I'm in MI so we've had crappolla weather here (well, a nniiccee warm week in March and a few days since but nothing too major) Noah loves hats and doesn't mind sunscreen but I always seem to miss one stupid spot (like the back of his calves last summer) and he always gets lots of sun on the part I've missed... they should make sunscreen that goes on bright yellow then disappears when it dries... that way no spots will be missed!! Hhhhhmmmm... I think I've got a great idea here!! LOL

Kim, Banana Boat used to make a Cool Colorz line of sunscreen like that. The colors were purple, blue, and something else that I can't remember. I think they may have been discontinued though Sad

Its the middle of May and my heating is still on! I am hoping that it will eventually warm up and we will have a nice summer for once. But England usually blows as far as summer is concerned!
