Got LICE????



So, now that we're all feeling better from the Flu......Megan goes to school and gets sent home because they say she has HEAD LICE.....All Over! YIKES! Luckily, Ryan is home to go pick her up (while I feed/attend to Matthew)and we plop her in the shower to get her ready for the Lice Shampoo Treatment. To our horror, the label read that it should be applied to DRY hair. OOPS! So out she goes, Ryan dries her hair, applies shampoo....wait 10 minutes (an eternity for Megan) then rinse. Next, the gel and comb through to get all the dead lice/nits out....my job. Well, I carefully apply gel to 1/2 inch sections to look for the lice.......I can't find ANY.????Perplexing. I do find lots of DANDRUFF....HMMMMMMMMMMMM.

So, my friend calls up...need any help she asks. YES! Am I blind? Well, she can't find any either but concurs about the dandruff. Her daughter had it the day before and she found 25 total so she knows what to look for. HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. Then back in the shower to rinse and do regular shampoo just for fun. 3 Showers for Megan;)Feeling a little lucky and grateful that maybe it's a false alarm. I'm washing everything just in case. Good thing there's just one more day of school left til vacation. I checked both girls tonight again and NOTHING! I think I'll take her to the nurse in the am to have her take a looky to be sure. Wish me luck!

Oh dear! Way to be so on top of the lice! I hope the nurse confirms that she is lice free...

That word is profanity in my books. So sorry to hear about it. Let me know if you need anything!

Ryan's classroom in infested right now too! I'm so glad he's a boy, with boy's hair. It would be so hard to keep lice at bay with lovely lady locks.

Here's wishing for dandruff!!!! lol...
