It seems when summer rolls around some rules are suspended according to kids. What is it about these two months that turn our world upside down? Some things I have heard:
“I don’t need to take a shower – I was in the pool”
Sorry Junior, you still need soap – chlorine, kid pee and whatever else is floating around in the pool is no substitute!
“Its light out – I can’t go to bed!”
I don’t give a damn if it is light out 24/7 like Alaska – your bedtime is 9pm and it doesn’t change because the days are longer now.
“I get tan so I don’t need sunscreen”
This one goes for you adults also – just because you tan doesn’t mean that you aren’t exposing yourself to possible skin cancer. Remember, a tan is actually a sign of sun damage. Put on that sunscreen!
Any crazy things you hear from your kids?
