Beware of the lotion... buy the stick

So today we went to the B-wood Waterpark for the first time. It was fun.... however, I have a note to all you "new moms". I'm sure most of you other moms have already learned this lesson, but for those of you who haven't, you may want to take a listen....
My anxious full-of-energy son was so excited about being there he did not want to sit still while applying sunscreen lotion. Now, on a side note, I am a sunscreen nut!!! My kid is crazy crazy white and I don't want to know what happens when he burns. So, I was wrestling him trying to finish off his face and apparently got a little... maybe a lot... in his eyes. Of course I didn't realize this until we were in the water, he was screaming, and his eyes began to swell. I AM SUCH A BAD MOM!!! He couldn't even open his eyes. To flush it out, The Boss had to man-handle him and hold his head down while I sprayed his face with a shower head. I felt like I was torturing him. It was an awful feeling. For about an hour he couldn't really open his eyes. But 3 hours later he was his happy, giggly, cute little self. So......... apparently there is a little face stick to apply suncreen on your childs face, so not to get it in his eyes, mouth or nose. We got one today. Beware of the lotion and buy the stick!

Oh the poor baby. Did you at least snap a picture of you guys performing the surgery?

I always lose the stick, but there are lots of "non-sting" lotions if you get desperate.

We are so sad that we could've seen you guys and we didn't. We had no idea your in the Bay Area. Now, we know. The reason why we are in Denver, is for Jordan's internship at a Law Firm. If he gets the job here, we will be traveling to San Francisco more often. Hope to see you guys in the future. Your boys are so cute. Sorry to hear about the lotion in the eye.
