Summer: Day 43
Today I earned a Mother of the Year award.
My children and I are white. And when I say white, I don't just mean we're caucasian. We're reallyyyyy white.
White like Liquid Paper.
White like rice.
White like cotton balls.
White like snowflakes.
White like polar bears.
I recently posted on Facebook that my "translucent fair" make up was too dark for my face.My sweet children got a LITTLE bit of their daddy's slightly darker skin tone, but still. We are very pale, white folks. Today we went to my sister's house to swim. My sister & I decided to stay indoors & talk while the kids swam. For a couple hours.
I forgot the sunscreen. You know, for the kids who usually wear SPF 600.
Tonight I've applied about a gallon of refrigerated aloe vera to some very lobster-ish shoulders, cheeks, noses, arms.
Oh yes, I'll be stepping on stage to do my acceptance speech shortly.
