Don't read this if your sensetive to suggestion
Ok, don't say I didn't warn ya!
So yesterday my kid comes home from school and she is scratching in her hair.
You guessed it: headlice!... The same thing every year!!
I asked her how long her head was itchy and she said 'since yesterday'.
It's the goddmn school. Every year in the first week of school they get a note saying there are headlice found in the class and if we would please
check our children. School started almost two months ago and they still have the lice problem.
Don't those parents see their kids scratching? Don't they check them? How is it possible that you don't notice that? How is it possible that they
don't act once the school told you your kid has it. It's not like we live in a 3rd world country, a lice lotion doesn't cost that much.
So anyway, I went to the pharmacy right away to get a lotion and they had this new thing called Rezultz, which is supposed to work after only 10 min,
instead of the usual 12 hour treatments.
Then got home, put the stuff on her hair, changed beddings, put the stuffed animals and coats in the freezer, boiled all the hairbrushes, removed the
pillows in the livingroom, etc etc, it kept me busy till late at night.
In the mean time I can only think "lice lice lice lice lice lice lice" and my whole body start to feel itchy. I checked my hubby's hair, he checked
mine and both of us where clean. But I'm still itching. So by midnight I can't stand it any longer and put the lice lotion on my hair as well just
to be sure.
This morning my kid is cured from the itch, there are no more beasties found on her, but me on the other hand, the itchy scratchy feeling goes on and
on. So my hubby checks me again: nope nothing there.
aaaarch! I'm going insane over here! I'm seriously considering getting more lotion or taking a bath in some disinfecting substance!
(do you feel it yet?)
btw, all ideas to get this out of my system are welcome!
