6 reasons why your kids will look better than you on holiday
1. They don’t care about other peoples’ opinions
While you hide fully-clothed under the umbrella they’re running, jumping and having fun without a care in the world. It’s hard to undo years of self-consciousness from that Year 9 school trip to the beach where you flashed everyone when your bikini top was ripped off by waves.
2. They’re all glowy
Because you’ll never forget to slather factor 50 on them it means they have a barely there tan. And, while it’s not big or clever, there is always, ALWAYS a bit we miss when applying factor ourselves and end up with a pink patch as evidence.
3. Floppy hats on little heads are cute (and stylish)
But floppy hats on big heads are... well, just another annoying thing to tote around, along with the arm bands, inflatable flamingo, bucket and spade, water bottles, sun cream, towels, snacks, that-book-you’ve-wanted-to-read-for-ages-but-probably-won’t-get-to.
4. Mini accessories are super sweet
These adorable sunglasses are so stylish. Black plastic sunglasses - with a stubborn bit of sticker on the right lense - grabbed last minute from the petrol station, because you forgot to pack yours, just don’t scream stylish.
5. They can get away with matching outfits
This is less cute for you and your husband. Who really wants to match the Mister’s 12-year old slightly see-through speedos with the faded palm tree print? Plus, these lovely swimwear re not only stylish, they’re great for spotting your little ones from a distance.
6. Smiles for miles
Kids have an adorable way of just smiling and laughing all the time - probably because they’re not worrying about drowning, sunburn, where to eat, what to eat, mosquito bites, the flight home, the washing pile when you get home, the jet lag… the list is endless. But they’re smiling, so it’s all worth it right?
