Well, we had a good run. The last time the girls had head lice was in daycare about 4 years ago.
There are head lice going around at school at the moment, and all the kids have been inspected. Mine were both cleared, and I've been checking their heads for the past week, and it looked like we were OK.
Then A started complaining of an itchy head, so I checked again. Nothing.
And again. Nothing.
And again last night.... ah.
A's reaction when I told her the reason for her itchy scalp:
Me fearing Y's reaction when I told him the next morning:
|Could be my husband's life philosophy.|
So this was 8.30pm last night.
Yes, that's right - Homeland time.
I MISSED HOMELAND!
I had no lice treatment at home, because we hadn't had lice in 4 years. I looked up The Internet for home remedies then smothered A's head in olive oil followed by yoghurt, knowing it was doing BUBKUS.
She rubbed yoghurt into my hair as my own head was feeling quite itchy by now.
We had showers, combed our hair and moved M's hairbrush into her bedroom away from ours.
M forbade either of us to cuddle or kiss her or get within a foot of her.
And today, A and I are home, with a bag of reassuringly chemical-filled lice shampoo and defense spray, and Grandma is coming round to keep us company.
