Water breaks and sunscreen check!



As you guys know, My back yard is one of the few without a fence, and It accumulates children in the summer. My daughter,is an only child, and she loves to have friends outside to play.


I feel responsible for the little chicks, when they are in my yard-maybe that is the teacher in me?


WEll, today, it was so Hot outside, I made them all take a break, to get hydrated with water and slab some sunscreen on. WE have 0 trees for shade in our back yard, and I am a hypocondriac, I don't want any dehydrated kids playing in my yard.I left a quart pitcher of ice out there for them, so it could melt and they could refill the glass them selves. They usually try to drink, from our waterhose, but I do not know how safe that is?? Anyone know?

It was too cute, b/c my daughter wanted to play outside shirtless like the boys, I didn't seem why not? They all have nipples just alike. My hubby, thought different, but I didn't. It is not like she has budding breast. That won't make her want to become a girl's Gone Wild chick.

She is only 4!!!! I guess Daddy's are like that, I don't know????

Hi Amy,


It's kind of sad that society has progressed to the point where you have to worry whether or not a shirtless four year old girl is doing something taboo. We played that way a lot when I was growing up, but that was back in the 40s when parents didn't hear alot about child abductions and perverts so they probably had a false sense of security. Dad's just worried.


Innocents last for such a short time...I would have done the same thing you did, at least for this summer. By next summer she'll be one street wise enough to want to cover up.

Drinking out of the hose is safe unless it's one of those hoses that flattens out when not in use because the material is treated with 'something'. Oh, to be a kid again, playing in the water! Maybe I'll do that soon... Iwill leave my shirt on, though!
