I spent a little time trying to figure out the best sunscreen for my fair-skinned toddler. Basically, you need to slather it on – like if your family was at the beach all day an entire 8 oz bottle would be empty if we used it as it is tested.

Realistic View:  find a relatively all natural sunscreen. Protect from UVA and UVB rays. No Parabans.  We bought Caribbean Solutions – natural/biodegradable lotation. It is a botanical /mineral blend. Of course I just read that I’m supposed to reapply every 45 MINUTES!

Check out Slate’s idea of defining Hockey Mom. It seems that it resonates with people where I live in Minnesota — but what about the warm climates. Does Sarah Palin’s label of Hockey Mom mean anything to a surfer mom??
