Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May. Today we commemorate the many men and women who have died while in the military.
I'm spending the day home with Super-Spawn. (Yes, he wound up staying home for the holiday!! YAY!!!!)
Anyway, today is a day for swimming, barbecue, trips to the beach, and relaxation! I hope you all, whether in the US or abroad, have a wonderful day!
On a mommy note today, make sure to check the Environmental Working Group's Cosmetic Database to find out just how safe your sunscreen is. They rate ingredients in products from 0-10, 0 being the safest and 10 being the worst. They don't only rate sunscreen, you can find everything from bubble bath to foundation in their extensive database.
Sometimes the things we use to protect ourselves turn out to be worse for us than we thought.
A favorite sunscreen of mine is Badger, which rates in at 0. We never get sunburns as long as it is used properly, and that says a lot since we live in sunny Florida!
Now, time for some watermelon!
