Sun exposure in babies could mean cancer later | Via @CNN


June 8, 2011 by themommahen


We all know the importance of sunscreen. We also all know how much hatchlings (and therefore us parents) hate putting it on. This article mentions incidental exposure — walking to and from places. riding in the car…So, do you and your kids make it a part of your daily routine when getting dressed or just put it on when going outside?

(Thanks to the husband for flagging this one.)

    What does the article say about long days at Jordan Lake slathered in baby oil and iodine during adolescence?

    And Afro Sheen (yes, to those of you who don’t know about that fad)? Yeah, I’m pretty sure that took some years off our lives. So I did that, and now I’m worried about whether or not I put sunscreen on my kids before we go out the door to go to the grocery store.( For the record, I didn’t do that today and usually don’t. Is that wrong?)

Walking in the snow So beautiful. But please let the power stay on. Morning chicken duty is always more fun when snow is falling. A little cold today. #brrr #beach I'm gonna Momma Hen you all for a minute with a gentle reminder that giving kids access to social media accounts -- whether theirs or yours, whether they're "old enough" or not -- without any guidance or oversight is not so different from letting your kid drive a car on the highway without any training. The damage may not be physical, and with a little luck there wont be any damage at all, but...images seen cannot be unseen, words said cannot be unsaid, things heard cannot be unheard. Birthdays are meant to be celebrated, even when it's back to school after an extended break. #12
