Hello to one and all and a happy Wednesday to you too! So, for this week's Works for Me Wednesday, hosted by Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer, I want to tell you a tale of what didn't work for me one time. When my now 4 year old daughter was just a two month old infant, I learned a very important lesson. We lived in the Arctic Tundra known as the Adirondack Park in Upstate New York. There wasn't a lot of sun during the winter. On the first nice spring day, I decided we needed to get out into the fresh air. I put her in a long sleeve shirt and long pants. I slathered her in SPF 30. We were outside enjoying the sunshine for a couple of hours when I noticed she looked a bit pink. I brought her inside and she got pinker. By evening, she had blisters on her face. I was so confused! I had used sunscreen. What gives? Well, the lesson we learned is that SUNSCREEN EXPIRES. Did you know that? Yes? Congratulations, you've probably never burned a two month old infant until she blistered. No? Please know that sunscreen is only good for a year or so. Don't burn a baby to learn this lesson. Some sunscreens now have expiration dates on them. Otherwise, the common advice is to get a new bottle of sunscreen each year. Not burning the baby? Definitely works for me. Have a great week!
