Sometimes, it seems that life just couldn't get any better....and then it does!
Conversely, sometimes it seems like it couldn't get any more stressful, and then your daughter brings home a note that says a child in her class has head lice. And your sanity begins to crack, just a tinchy bit.
And while your child doesn't have head lice, it *feels* imminent. So you quarantine her in the most loving way you know how, by sending her into the basement as soon as she enters the house. Where you get her undressed and wash all her clothes, backpack and lunch bag in the hot cycle. Twice. And you give her a bath. And you wash her bedding. In the hot cycle. Twice.
And you vacuum the whole house. Twice.
And you check every one's heads. 19,309 times.
And even though, no one has lice (yet) those cracks in your sanity start to get bigger.
And you think you might have to start homeschooling.
Or, you'll have to set your house on fire.
I am praying for the BIGGEST hedge of lice prevention. And will be very busy on guard the next several days. Weeks. Months. Years.
