Why You Should Not Allow a Seven-Year-Old to Apply Your Sunblock for You

The whole time Mary Liz was rubbing the sunscreen into my skin, I thought, "I really should go over my shoulders again," but I didn't want to hurt her feelings and make her think she did a bad job, and by the time I'd finished everything else (stuffing the gigantic, half-deflated flotation device in the car, putting sunblock on the eight-year-old, quelling the bickering for 2.4 seconds, etc.) I'd forgotten about discreetly re-doing what I suspected she'd missed.

Oh no! If it makes you feel any better, I'm sporting a very similar look, and I don't even have any excuses: that's just how I put sunblock on MYSELF.
