It’s my mom’s birthday on Monday and without thinking I told her I would make her a birthday cake.
Then I had a bit of a problem. My eczema flared up and I made the mistake of grabbing the wrong bottle from the linen closet, so instead of putting lotion on my arms, I put body wash on them. Needless to say, I burnt my arms really badly and didn’t realize my mistake. I spent a week trying desperately to get my arms to heal, then I made the mistake of using what I thought was the lotion on my arms again, as well as my stomach.
I had to go to the doctor on Monday to get help. I have never in my life felt so stupid.
But finally, after almost 2 weeks, my arms are starting to heal. So today I made my mom’s birthday cake. Now all I have to do is get my dad to come over tomorrow and pick it up.
And I have made sure never to mix up lotion and body wash again.
Happy Birthday Mom!
