Yesterday we went swimming at our little clubhouse pool. There was a grandpa there that lives in our gate, with his 8 grand kids. Sometimes, all these grand kids can get really annoying...like last night when I saw a 9 yr. oldish girl TOTALLY blow her nose into the pool....but that's not what I'm writing about today.
One of the grand kids at the pool was a little fairy princess aged girl. I'd say she was about 3. Probably a year or so younger than Katie. She had on a too-big swim suit which showed tons of her skin and I could see her MASSIVE racer-back swimsuit shaped SUNBURN. From her shoulders to her neck, I could see grey & brown peeling skin exposing that bright red tender flesh underneath. The peeling areas were DEEP and her skin was still bright red along her arms and legs. All I want to know was, HOW DID HER MOTHER LET THAT HAPPEN? When she got burned, she was clearly in a swimsuit which means she was in a swimming situation. Where was the sunscreen? This little girl was fair with white-blond hair. I seriously felt a wave of nausea come over me when I saw her burns close-up. Could that be considered abuse/neglect? Maybe the dad was in charge when that happened.
