As the girls have gotten older and gone of to School and Kinder I have constantly worried about head lice. I have been so paranoid always tying their hair up and spraying it with Tea Tree oil before they leave. I even request at school and kinder that they NEVER share a hat. But today, the day Maddy goes to creche and the day I have planned to try t o catch up on work my night mare unfolds. After dropping the girls off I quickly went to the Supermarket, I had planned every minute of the day, exactly what I needed to get done. My phone rings and it is creche, Maddy has Head Lice. I felt sick, I had no idea what to do, so off to the Chemist to get everything, and then I went to pick her up. I was horrified! I had no idea. So I spent the whole day treating her hair. She has really thick long hair, it took me 3 hours to comb it. I don't know how many loads of washing I have done. I have even treated my own hair because she has slept with me the last 2 nights. My friend George dropped Carly home after school so I also treated her hair, but found nothing when I combed it through. I just hope she doesn't get it.
So that has been my day and a real welcome to reality of school years for me! I hope tomorrow is a better day for me.
