I have to admit — when summer approaches, the one thing I dread is applying sunscreen on my kids!
And so when the clouds and cold move in with October, I am relieved to put away the sunscreen. (Well, I don’t put it far away. I do pull it out if the sun makes some rare appearances!)
Now, I know we should wear it all year round, but come on people — I live in Vancouver, read: a rain cloud ten months a year!
If we go skiing in the winter, I make sure to slather on the sunscreen to protect against the reflection of the sun on the white snow. But most regular days as we dodge rain drops here in soggy Vancouver, I don’t bother with sunscreen.
But — I am feeling a guilty about that! I know that the sun can be damaging even in the winter.
So I am wondering: Do you and/or your kids wear sunscreen all year round? (If you live in Arizona, I sure hope so!)

This week, the challenge for the Disney D-Lightful Living: Animate Your Daily Routine program is all about Skin Care All Year Long.
As I said, I don’t look forward to sunscreen time with my kids. BUT, when Disney adds some of their magic, it sure helps.
Yes, a little Phineas and Ferb definitely makes the sunscreen more fun. Thanks Disney!
