This week's Photo Hunters Theme is Cooked.

Since I've been talking about sun safety all week, I decided to post another photo of my fair-skinned daughter's recent sunburn. Bad judgement combined with forgetfulness on my part, and now her face and neck area are cooked. She's smiling, so hopefully it's not too painful.

Thank you for such an important message (and finally getting your comments back up - mine were off for a while last night too which I never do!).

My kids and I are all fair-skinned so I've been chanting the Australian saying "Slip, slap, slop" repeatedly -

Slip on a shirt
Slap on a hat
Slop on sunscreen.

OOHH, that looks like it hurts!

Jennifer said...

Awww...poor sweetie. Doesn't look too terrible though.

I had the same problem with my comments - guess it's a blogger issue...ugh!

I thought about sunburns for the theme. Good pic.

Oh dear! Very good interpretation of the theme, but so sad! I struggle to remember the sunscreen too. They are in such a hurry just to get outside, sometimes we dont' remember.

Have a great weekend!

Now this is looking at it from a different angle for sure.... ouch! Hope she does ok and doesn't blister!

Liz Hinds said...

Oh, bless her! I never remember smiling when I was sunburned so let's hope hers isn't too painful.

Good take on the theme.

Oh dear, I hope it will heal soon. But look at her smile! Ah, children. Lovely shot by the way. :)

Ouch! That doesn't look fun at all! But a good take on the theme. Thanks for stopping by. Oh, a jello cake is really simple. Here's the recipe for lemon jello cake, but you can use any flavor you like.


1 pkg. Yellow Cake Mix
1 (3 1/2 oz.) pkg. lemon Jello
3/4 c. hot water
3/4 c. oil
2 tbsp. lemon extract
4 lg. eggs

Dissolve lemon Jello in hot water in the large mixer bowl. Cool to lukewarm and then add the oil, extract and cake mix. Beat until smooth. Add eggs and beat until very light and fluffy. Pour into cake pan that has been greased and floured. Bake one hour at 350 degrees. Turn out on wire rack to cool.


4 tbsp. lemon juice
1 1/2 to 2 c. powdered sugar

what an interesting (but painful) take on the prompt
my fair skin son was often getting burnt growing up even though we used sun care all the time
thanks for dropping by for my photo hunt

Cheryl said...

Oh, you did have my original idea! I hope it does not repeat often as that can lead to cancer! She looks adorable from what I can see.

I saw this earlier and hope that she's feeling better. Sunburn could give a little discomfort. I'm
glad she's smiling because it's a good sign that she's okay.

Samantha & Mom said...

Ouch! I'm glad I'm furry. I don't need sunscreen. Do cats need sunscreen? Great take on cooked.
Be blessed,
Samantha, Tigger and Mom

That is a nasty sunburn. I remember as a child i went swimming almost every day and had horrid sunburns.I used baby lotion to soothe the irritation at that time :)

*lol* We have the same idea, different species!

Hope your daughter is not in pain and healing!
