I can’t begin to tell you how much I hate lice. Why oh why is it that I discover the little buggers just when we’re at the get hair done and we’ll be ready to leave for school point? This morning is the third time that has happened to me. Suddenly we go from being well and truly on time – early even! – to rocking up to school 20 minutes late with wet hair all round. All 3 kids had a head full of creepy things, there was no way I could responsibly send them to school without treating them. Bugger, bugger, bugger. Anyway, must have been the quickest 3 way delousing I’ve ever done.
Of course I then spent the next few hours with my scalp itching like crazy and convinced I could feel something actually crawling around up there. I gave in at 1pm and did my own hair. Didn’t find even one single bug.
I think I hate them even more than the real ones….
….no, perhaps not.
