My daughter's teacher sent home a letter that a child in the class has lice. I told her she can wear her hair in a pony tail and that she is not to share hats or such with the kids in her class. I also told her for now that I didn't want her hugging anyone(she hugs everyone!)because they transfer from head to head contact. I do not wish to deal with lice at this time. She told her friend that she couldn't hug her because she had lice. I feel awful:(
I know that lice isn't a big deal but it is a pain to get rid of. Right now dh is sick and unable to help if there is a lice break out in our house. I have 4 kids ranging in age from 2 months to 7 years. My girls have looooong hair. I've dealt with lice in the past at daycares and in my home when I was caring for a couple of girls. I would rather not go there. But now my concerns have transfered to my dd and she hurt her friends feelings. crap!
Lice are a huge PITA, I wouldn't be worried about being a spaz, my sister used to get them all the time when we were little, she had really long hair. She got it so much my mother cut her hair really short! If you do get them, don't forget to treat the car! I think that's where my mom went wrong, and sis was getting re-infested from car upholstery. They sell a spray you can use in the car. Good luck! One of the reasons I am grateful to have a boy, I can shave his head and nobody will look twice!
