My Son

I've never been able to tan... and I've never much cared...  Until last summer, when I spent a lot of time outdoors burning despite loads of sunscreen.  I think what got me though was that my son (one at the time) walked away with a gorgeous golden tan by the end of the summer (even after being piled with equal loads of sunscreen).  The difference?  I'm almost entirely German.... my son's father is African American.  On a normal day he looks to have a very similar skin tone as I do... but get him in the sun and he obviously responds differently.

Am I going to go out and try to tan?  Heck no.  Do I admire his gorgeous (tan) skin?  Of course.
