So, I was over at my mother's house this afternoon with my two year old daughter and, because of the heat, my mother got out the inflateable pool and filled it with water for Alice and my seven year old half sister to play in. Well, my little girl having fair skin and red hair, I'm constantly slauthering her with sunscreen whenever she's out of the house. I made sure to make her get out of the pool and dry her off and reapply every hour or so. When it got dark and I dried her off and changed her clothes and checked her carefully for any sign of sunburn and was happy to see that her that she had just the slightest tinge of pink on her cheeks.
Well, as we got home I began to feel chilled and my face felt like it was on fire and, when I looked in the mirror, my entire face, arms and chest were tomato red. There were even marks on my shoulders from my mother's lawn chair. I can barely move.
Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever tried so hard to protect your children that you failed to protect yourself? I just want to feel like I'm not the only idiot out there.
