Hi everyone. I live in Houston, Texas and we have some of the hottest summers around. Down here if the heat doesn't get you, the humidity sure will. Today it happened to be 106! My youngest nephew turned 1 today and they had his birthday party outside at a ranch with horses and lots of other farm animals. It was super cute and we had a good time, but I was dying in the heat! There were about 8 or so other little babies out there under the age of 1 and the rest of the kids were older. I couldn't help but notice that most of the babies were sweaty and real pink in the face and some of the parents weren't really making sure they had enough to drink. Am I the only one that thinks this is very strange???? I mean little ones can over heat so easily. At least thats what I've always been told. Now I'm not a mommy yet (will be in September!) so maybe I'm just inexperianced in this particular area. But it just seemed odd to me. I mean I don't think I would have my baby out in that heat even if they were....10! Lol I guess compared to everyone else I'm going to be one of those over-protective mommies.
Please give me some feedback on this!!
