Baby at the sea side

18 Jul

As an adult, more precisely as a red-haired adult, going to the beach is a crusade. 50+ sunscreen to put on every 2 hours. Long sleeved anything or a pareo to cover your entire you from the entire sun. A towel. A hat. Sun glasses. Don’t go to the beach between 12pm and 5pm and preferably not even after 11am and not until 7pm. Don’t use oil, water, sand, foil paper or anything that can reflect light on you. Stay covered at all times and if you have any freckles (yes, we red haired people are usually covered in them) make sure to have them checked yearly and do your best not to expose them… Basically, to make things easier stay in doors and watch “Baywatch” if you feel like going to the beach, or go at night time and have a cocktail instead. Getting drunk is ok no matter your skin color !!

Taking a new born baby to the beach is more or less the same but worse.

If you are like me, not following the “red haired beach rules” you spend your summer looking like a red lobster and chilling down with yogurt on your body and potatoes on your shoulders hoping to look normal again within hours and start the roasting session again in the morning. When you have baby, as you’re not sure how to take care of yourself, you avoid taking the risk with him and so you basically just don’t go to the beach because he’ll never be too protected (so you think) and the day light only will (so you think as well) burn him for life… And so you keep him indoors like Dracula until the sun goes down.

Should try the mountains instead…
