Extract from latest email: Jxx, we both know how forgetful you are so this is a reminder to get suncream for the children. Atlantis Organics All Natural Sunscreen 30+ is the one they are used to. Apply it 3 times during the day and more if they are outside. Axxxx is particular sensitive to the sun so be careful with her. I don’t want them sunburnt. Sun hats and a cap for B*** are a must.

Now, when we were together boots own childrens suncream was just fine. Re: her comment "and more if they are outside" now can anyone tell if they have ever caught the sun inside. oh and where the flippin'' ''eck am I supposed to get this organic crap from anyway. Not that I need to know cos I will use what I have always used and the children, in 5 and a half years of summers, have NEVER been sunburnt, ever!

I wish that were an option but apparently my maintenance is discounted for the period of time that they are with me, therefore I have to provide everything they need whilst they are with me as my maintenance doesn''t even cover half their food bill at mothers.

Morrisons value at £1.99 is what we use and has had a brilliant write up.

I agree that maybe mentioning suncream was a good idea but not in the way she said it.

As for dictating the make - I dont think so!!!

My partner ex is just the same.

My partner has to provide everything for his children when he has them.

His ex has made such a fuss about the cost of providing dinner before he collects them for contact. She has held up the financial consent for over a year because of it!!

In the end my partner has agreed to pay £1k to cover this additional cost!! (Wonder if she will get a bulk discount when she spends it all on chicken nuggets and chips??)

Well there are two things, your reply and what you do....
In terms of reply

When the kids are with me I''ll use whatever suncream I fecking want, and how often I want.

Thank you for the reminder however it really is unnecessary. I personally find that that the Natures Choice suncream distilled from the tears of Unicorns works far better.

Ok I''ll make sure they have sun protection.

Obviously sun protection is important but assuming you are doing your bit, carry on as you are :-)For this reason option 3 as an answer is a sensible choice as it makes no comittment regarding make of sun cream or how often it is used.
