It's naughty....very, VERY naughty.
Why?...because when you say it mommy get's all scared and anxious and starts hyperventilating. And her head starts itching.....really bad.
At least that is what happened the day we found a little creepy, crawly, egg laying nasty in G-McBabe's hair about 18 months ago (just a few weeks after Mr. Golden Locks was born).
A few weeks after the start of school, we got the customary "lice" letter home one day.
You know, the "it's that time of year again when we typically see an increase in head lice" letter?
I hate that letter.
But....not more than I hate the "Nits (lice eggs) and/or lice have been found on a couple of students in the 3rd grade" letter.
That letter came home today.
For a few seconds I thought about falling apart. (Breath, breath, breath).
Instead I just did a little scream inside......
Why now? I'm not medicated (at least not for a few more days).
How do you expect a "sister" to deal with something like this unmedicated, y'all?
I looked at the paper....I looked at G-McBabe.....and then I said,
"You do realize we are going to have to do a head check today, right?
Poor kid....he knows his mama all too well. Let's face it....she can be a little psycho.
We FINALLY got to it tonight just before bed....
Luckily....so far, so good (all heads checked, all heads cleared).....and I didn't even panic, at least not more than once.....or twice. :)
We ended the day with the "do not share hats or coats or scarfs talk"....the "stuff your coat inside your backpack talk" (what are they thinking making kids share cubbies?)...the "I know you love your friends but just don't get too close to them" talk.
Oh....and I prayed.....HARD!
I think we have it all covered.
Did I miss anything?
