Sunscreen Or Else!

 Now that the warm weather has arrived in New York, I’d have thought our morning “get ready for school routine” would be much simplified.  No more getting on coats, hats mittens, boots and trudging through snow and freezing rain to get to school.  Sounds logical, but I’m wrong again!

 The last few days of blissful sunshine have reminded me of the warm weather morning scramble.  Now I’m trying to drag the Little Man into the bathroom to not only brush those teeth (most of which still need to fall out – go figure), but we need to get sunscreen applied and find an agreeable hat.  Sounds easy enough, right?  Wrong. 

"We're going to need more sunscreen!"

 Anyone who has ever applied sunscreen to a child knows that you’d have an easier time wrestling alligators than trying to get a kid properly lathered up.  It’s like the perfect storm of parenting.  You’ve got no gold at the end of the rainbow like the beach, water park or pool to justify the sunscreen, you’ve got a tighter timeframe to get to school than Jack Bauer trying to save humanity and you’ve got a unwilling participant who’d rather be playing Lego Star Wars with those precious morning minutes. Tick tock.

Parents, please remember to take the time to get that sunscreen on your kids.  They’ll thank you in thirty years when the dermatologist isn’t explaining what carcinoma is to them.   Fortunately for me, the Little Man has come to accept that there is no escaping dad with a Supergoop Quickstick.  Jack Bauer has nothing on me…

    I laughed so hard when I read your article! It is so hard to get my child to put her sunscreen on! I have been doing a lot of research on sunscreen lately because my little girl keeps breaking out from the sunscreen. I found this great website that has wonderful articles! You should check it out!
