Yesterday J-Man and I went snowshoeing with some friends up in the La Sal Mountains here in Moab. It was a beautiful sunny day and much warmer in the mountains compared to town due to the inversion we are having.
I packed our jackets, hot cocoa, water, backpacks, hats, sunglasses, snowshoes, trekking poles, snacks and everything else we needed except one thing and that is what prompted me to write this post.
Here is a reminder that even though it is winter SUNSCREEN is still needed. I know this, but since we haven’t been out in sunny weather lately, I totally forgot to slather it on J-man’s face. The sunscreen is in the closet out of sight and out of mind, therefore, I totally spaced it.
It seriously didn’t even occur to me that I had forgotten sunscreen on him until after his nap and he woke up with bright red cheeks, nose and forehead. Yeah, I feel like a horrible mom. Thank goodness it doesn’t bother him, but it certainly bothers me.
So the next time you head outside with your tykes for some outdoor playtime, please make sure you smear some sunscreen on them.
You don’t want their cheeks to turn out like this…
Thank goodness we have some SkinFare to heal them.
Here is my favorite sunscreen we use.
Have you ever forgotten to put sunscreen on your tyke and it resulted in a sunburn? Have you done something similar?
