I had this great idea for our last week of Camp Mommy to shoot a music video. But first! Phoebe would HAVE to get her hair blown out. As soon as I pointed that hair dryer to her scalp I found the first bug, then another, and I put the hair dryer down and tried to think fast. I turned to the other one and did a quick inventory but predicted I only had one case of lice to reckon with.
I knew it was only a matter of time until the lice came to visit.
What I learned from lice:
Better appreciation for the phrases: “with a fine toothed comb” and “nit picking”
I miss the touch involved with parenting little children. Finely combing through my daughters hair for hours and hours was less of a burden and more of a bittersweet reminder that I no longer change them, dress them, bathe them, feed them, or brush their hair for that matter (which is why I caught the licey bugs a little late in the game!)
I care for my girls and will comb through their hair for hours and hours if that’s what it takes.
I could work for Hair Fairies. I was 100% dedicated to obliterating ANY sign small or smaller of those evil evil creatures. I decimated that family in a single DAY!
The best way to treat lice is to pick every last trace of them out of the hair, no chemicals required. I OBLITERATED those pests in a single sitting….never had to use any chemicals after that.
Look at all those lessons I’ve learned….No need to repeat.
