Apparently I Missed A Couple of Spots

This is proof that sunscreen does actually work...if applied appropriately. Obviously I failed. But I guess you can look at the bright side--at least the other 98% of his body remained burn free. Poor baby. I feel horrible. Fortunately, he hasn't even really seemed to notice. I, on the other hand, want to soak in an ice bath just looking at him.

Another mommy lesson learned the hard way. So, I suppose I'm no longer in the running for the Mother of the Year award? What do you know...disqualified 3 years in a row. Motherhood is hard work, I tell ya.

I did the same thing to my mom when we went to the beach years ago. She had a nice wavy line across the middle of her back where I didn't go all the way to the bottom of her swim suit. I told her it was to remind her of the waves of the ocean. She was NOT amused :)

Don't worry, you are NOT the only one to make this mistake! I guess Spencer was traumatized by his own sunburn because any time he sees any sort of red spot, anywhere on his body, he says "oh no, I got a sunburn!"

My Wine Personality:
For the most part I’m a chardonnay, as I consider myself to exhibit a somewhat sunny and mellow disposition (most of the time), but because I find a tremendous amount of joy out of showering my two kids with hugs and kisses, I also possess the subtle sweetness often found in a riesling. But don’t be fooled. I love a great outdoor adventure and am willing to try anything once. This occasional display of boldness is thought to match that of a cabernet, whereas my appreciation for nature suggests that I have an earthy component to my personality—very characteristic of a merlot.
