Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after. ~Henry David Thoreau
Bubbe, I'm afraid that you got your father's fair skin. The sight of the sun, turns your cheeks pink and your ears red.
Year round, I am constantly slathering your skin with sun screen.
And your skin is sensitive - not just any old store brand sun screen will do - it has to be a very special, hypo allergenic, made for babies only, sunscreen.
Actually seems to be a good metaphor for you in general.
You look all tough and big and grown these days.
But, really, your the sweetest, most tender, *almost* eight year old boy I know.
So, while you may think you're getting all grown up, remember this about yourself - Wear a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen.
I mean it.
