A little bit ago I talked about how I tend to get a little overwhelmed with expectations. I get overwhelmed when I hear about ladies who do projects with their kids and plan fun days out and who are very purposeful and organized with activities. I think these women are incredible and there is a part of me that wishes I could get my act together enough to be one of these moms. Unfortunately, I am not, nor do I think I ever will be. So here’s what I’ve planned to do over the summer. Yep. You saw that right. This, any variation of this. With a book or without a book. In the pool with them or on the side. With my kids screaming & doing cannon balls in the back ground, popsicles outside, BBQ scents wafting through the yard, this will be my summer. However, I am the only white person in my family. I am the only one that really sees the effects of the sun on their skin. My husband is rarely in the sun and my boys just get darker and darker but never burn. So while I occasionally put sunscreen on them, it’s not catastrophic if I do not. For me on the other hand – catastrophic. But you know, it’s hard to find a sunscreen that you like. One that doesn’t feel sticky or greasy. One that covers enough but not too much. And definitely one that is easy to apply. No one wants to sit there sweating while they try to rub in their sun screen! And seriously, who has time for that? The kids are ready to jump in the pool the second they see it, sunscreen needs to be easy to apply! That’s why I have seriously been loving the new Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration™ Weightless Sunscreen. It goes on so smooth, doesn’t feel like you have anything on and smells delicious! I actually don’t mind putting it on at all. So now I can feel really good about doing nothing all summer. I will be having a good time getting all the vitamin D that I need but with all the protection I need! Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration™ Weightless Sunscreen is water resistant up to 80 minutes, so I really can just chill by the pool with no interruptions. This is definitely going in my summer beach/pool bag.
So if you’re looking for me this summer you will find me by the pool, with my kids, smelling like I just got back from Hawaii. That’s my kind of summer. Who’s with me!
