School is out and all of my kids (nieces and nephew) came to visit. It is my job as an aunt to keep everyone entertained. From 5 years old to 11 years old, what a mess! Since they come and all want to do a collection of things I have decided to set up stations at the house. Of course, swimming, the doll section, the Wii, two TV zones, my nephew refuses to watch anything that has to do with dancing princesses, etc. They move around in the different areas, but the whole house becomes a disaster. Most parents probably do this, but I bought the cheapest rubber tubs and loaded the zones in each one. They fit so great in the closet and I just pile it all in, right before everyone goes to bed. The swimming tub, has to be placed outside until everything dries.

The one thing I have noticed this summer is the amount of sunscreen I have to put on each and everyone of us, me included. The SPF is going up, the type of sunscreen is crucial and I have a timer for reapplication. Do I sound obsessive? Does anyone else slather sunscreen on like that, or am I just living in an area where the sun bakes or I should say cooks them? None of the kids had a sunburn, but I missed a spot and it was obvious my obsessing over them, let to my neglect. So yesterday after swimming and riding bikes and wearing each other out, they all laid around and read, with the TV on. I couldn't help but giggle at them. The exhaustion was too apparent. They all happily took a bath and went to bed. I was so sorry to see them go. I want them to stay all summer, but I know Mommy and Daddy need them too.

Any hints on Sunscreen types or brands and SPF? I'm out and need to try something more effective for the kids, especially with sensitive skin, fair skin, light hair and of course me, dark hair with baby skin that apparently the sun loves to COOK!
