Nivea Sun Kids and The Missions
We all know how important it is for our little ones to cover up in the sun. It’s no different in the Mission household; just ask any of the Missions.
Princess, Put your hat on if you’re going outside, Monster take your water and play under the gazebo, Drama, put the sun cream on and put a t-shirt over that bikini. I’m known as moaning mummy on a sunny day because I’m constantly watching out for the first signs of sunburn or worse sunstroke.
Every year from April to September the Missions are out in our Campervan, so it is vital that I found a sun cream that will protect their delicate skin.
Whenever we go away camping the same checklist comes out, Hats, Sun Cream, Little pop up Sun tent, water bottles, you get the idea. This year as we are preparing to go away little Princess was watching as i loaded the bags. "Mummy why dont cows, sheep and pigs get sunburnt?"
"Because they have thicker skin, than us" I replied She skipped off end of conversation...So i thought.
"Mummy...I have been thinking and the reason why they dont is because they roll about in poo all day" she proudly announced
"How did you work that out?" I asked her "Well, you see they all are very stinky so they must roll around in Poo, and that must be there sun cream".
She does have a valid point, farm animals are a bit smelly.
So off she trotts and comes back with this...
Yep you guessed it...Cow Poo!
I had to stop her from putting it on her face.
I was thinking more along the lines of Nivea Sun for kids, but whatever floats your boat.
Extra TLC for those little darlings...
