We had our first (and hopefully last) run in with lice this weekend *shivers*.
What was worse is that The Person and I had to do our hair as well and we found a little critter or two in our hair. So grossed out. Do you know how difficult it is when you have long thick hair and that damn comb is so tiny and fine.
Then when you’ve shampooed and gotten rid of those horrid little things you have to pretty much boil everything; bedding, pillows the whole shebang. It’s a bloody nightmare I tell you and I am so glad that we haven’t had to deal with this before. Plus Fysh is blonde so we caught it a little late – hence us getting it probably. I have no idea where he could have picked it up, apparently none of the other kids at school have/had it so it’s not from there. But oh well, at least it’s all sorted now, my head still itches at the thought of it though. urgh. And according to the shampoo we’ll need to do it again this weekend just in case.
Guess it’s just one of those things you have to deal with as a parent.
One of those things no one ever warns you about.
