This is what Big T calls sunscreen

This is also what happens when one gets sunscreen in the eye! YEOUCH!!

So it is officially warm weather seasonĀ – 3.5 months from late spring to early fall. (yep, that’s all we get per year around here. 3.5 months of warm weather, and 8.5 months of sucky weather, but I digress…). Warm weather season means the kids play out in the sun all day. Yes, it’s true, we as a family are not melanin challenged. However, I still feel the need to protect their delicate baby skin. So there I was, in the suncreen aisle at Target…confused, not knowing which one to get…what level of SPF? spray or lotion? Neutrogena or Coppertone? AAARGH!!

In honor of all this mayhem, I have compiled a list of my top five pet peeves about suncreen

5) I feel ridiculous even buying it. For real. Like how the average caucasian would feel buying jherri curl activator. No wait…bad analogy…anyone would feel ridiculous buying jherri curl activator…

4) Not the best smell ever.

3) Apparently it expires within a year, so I have to buy more next year???

2)Speaking of which…that junk is expensive!!! Seriously??? The Neutrogena stuff was $8 for 4 ounces. ON SALE! It is the fleecing of non-sun worshippers everywhere.

1) SUNSCREAM!!! (yeah, I got suncreen in my eye this morning).
