I took Annie to the doc last week for her yearly checkup and mentioned her head had been itching for days. Doc looked all over her head. Nothing. We chalked it up to her sensitive skin.
Then Grace started itching. And I got worried.
And now today – the day before the first day of school – I’m seeing little white things on my both my kids’ heads.
Please God please let it be dandruff. PLEASE.
But I don’t think it is.
Extra bonus: MY head is itching like crazy right now.
So of course I’ve been Googling pictures of head lice and treatments and whether or not I should burn my house down.
And you better believe I’m researching professional nit pickers, because nit picking two little girls with long hair?
NO. Just, no.
Mama ain’t got time for that. Or patience for that. Or sanity for that.
And if I have lice? I’m watching Pitch Perfect with a nice bottle of red wine while Nit Picking Lady has at my scalp.
I hope she likes off-tune, drunk moms who love to sing.
Update, 8pm: Oh yes, it’s lice. Oh yes, we all got it. And oh yes, I’m about to drink a bottle of wine because I just want to forget how much we paid the lice ladies to get us all clean and also the little fact that we now have 10 bags of laundry to deal with. Yeah. Good times.
Have your kids had lice? Have YOU? How’d you combat it? Natural treatments or chemicals galore?
