Their ears ache from being forced to constantly listen out for scratching (and our nagging for them to do so!)
Their mouths drain from having to keep saying ‘No Scratching’, as instructed by us!
Their tummies burst from lack of exercise (counting calories may be harder for men, is it? lol)
This is the BEST – their fingers hurt from being scratched or peeled by our eczema toddlers, endorsed by us because better to peel yours than mine! (My girl does love to peel her fingers, and sometimes content herself with peeling her dad’s)
This is the 100th of my “101 Things that Moms with Eczema Child Do Differently“, a tongue-in-cheek look at the many unique situations that we face. For more cartoons, click here to view.
Watch out for next week’s FINALE 101th, it’s a SHOCKER.
Step 2: Leave a comment in this post with a link to your EczemaBlues Cartoon board (be sure to enter your email address so that I can contact you to redeem the prize) If you can’t manage to get the comment through (it’ll be moderated, so check back within a day), tweet me (@marciemom) to let me know.
The contest ends on 8 July (whichever time zone you’re in), judging will start from 9 July and the winner be announced in this blog on 11 July. The winner will get USD25, direct transfer from my paypal to yours! If for whatever reason the paypal transfer couldn’t get through, I’d use the US$25 to purchase something you want (including delivery charge) from a site that accepts paypal.
Something for Everyone: If you’ve taken part in this contest and like to have an electronic version of my A to Z Animals are not Scratching! book (selling at US$1.99), please leave a comment asking for the ebook in this post (with your email filled in) so that I can send it to you.
Make my day – while you’re on this site, do subscribe to my email list and newsletter (at top right side banner). I’m not making this part of the contest, cos I know parents are busy, but if you can find the energy to submit your email, I’d be very happy!
Judging: Judging for the Winner will be by Marcie’s Dad, who will decide based on which board tells a compelling story of your family life, few pointers:
1. Name of board must be correct “EczemaBlues Cartoon”
2. Description of board is relevant
3. Sufficient number of pins to tell your family story
4. Description for the pin that tells why that particular pin applies for your family
5. I’m (of course) assuming that you know how to pin. Pin from my website, and NOT save the cartoon to your computer then load it back to pinterest.
It is amazing isn’t it? I’ve managed to draw 101 cartoons that Moms with Eczema Child do Differently! This last segment is the final season, and aptly terms FINAL BREAKS where the focus is on all sorts of breaks!
The most obvious being – THE LACK OF COFFEE BREAKS!
And I didn’t even think of EXERCISE Breaks, only goes to show how long I haven’t had the chance to do so!
