The many uses for sunscreen

Today Riley and Quinn's friend Max came to play. Look at those adorable faces.
So innocent, right?
And then there was sunscreen. A nice, full bottle just waiting to be opened.
Sunscreen can be like paint to children.
Did you know it can be used as a substance to scrub windows?
It can be used as body art.
You can use a knife to spread it over bed sheets.
You can paint tables, multiple toys, and legos with it.
A carpet cleaner perhaps?
It does change the scenery when looking out the window. Oh, and make sure you use a dish sponge and wet wipe when applying.
I was just trying to feed this sweet one when it all happened...
Three years ago I would have been so frustrated to walk into a room covered in sunscreen. I am so grateful that I am learning to not sweat the small stuff. It was refreshing to walk into the room and tell the kids not to move so I could get my camera. I laughed as I was cleaning. I found sunscreen on almost every toy. I was amazed at their speed and creativity. I am blessed to have happy, healthy children that cover the carpet in laundry detergent, nail polish, lipstick,pee and even sunscreen.

  1. I have looked at this post several times now. I am in awe and giggles the whole time. I love your attitude about it. Don't you wonder whose "bright" idea it was. Ha! Thanks for sharing.
