I'm a Bad Mother - again

Actually, as Crash pointed out, we are Bad Parents. We went on a picnic today to Federal Park in Annandale. Apart from Charlie being fairly horrid, especially in the first half of the exercise, and Ben not quite living up to our responsibility expectations, it was quite a pleasant afternoon - spent with Toni & Andrew and their girls.

However, every single one of us got sunburnt. Despite my having insisted on the boys sunscreening up before we left the house, and getting Charlie into a hat for the first time in about 2 years. We failed to reapply on arrival - which was made doubly bad by the fact that Ben insists on doing his own sunscreen, so many bits were missed. And we failed to put any on Elissa. She was in shade all day, but it's not like I don't know that's not enough. One of the worst burns I've had was in the Brewongle Stand at the cricket. We also failed to put any on most of ourselves. Sheesh. I feel guilty and stupid. Elissa's face is burnt. Try looking at a 3 month old with a burnt face and not feeling like DOCS should be knocking on your door. Ben's worst bits are similarly accusing. *sigh*
