A few weeks ago I get a text message from a classmate of Carly's Mom. "We have fun in first grade with little bugs."
Ok, headlice are going around. Oh, I don't have Carly. So I call Mom and let her know.
I check Carly's hair often. I don't have credit cards to use. So $30 for special shampoo, extra flea spray (same ingredient as the RID, but cheaper and bigger) for teh rugs, beds etc.... followed by a $50 to $60 at the laundry mat to get all the bedding washed in one blow..... SCREWS up my BUDGET royally.
A Mom calls me about PTA stuff this morning. She then beats around the bush and finally asks if I know of any problems with little bug in the 1st grade room. Why yes, I got a text message a couple of weeks ago.
This woman has been BATTLING them since JANURAY... and DIDN'T let any of the other parents know.
Our school doesn't send home warning letters.
I am PISSED because this mother has been battling them for what 6 to 8 weeks and hasn't said a word. Where 3 weeks go the other Mom WHO LET PEOPLE KNOW has bene tryign to figure out where her daughter got tehm from.
Yes, it is a note that no one wants to read..... but it needs to be told! You can't "hide" because you think other parents will flip out. Heck I am flipping out because NOTHING was said until child #2 (or possibly more)......
3rd child now affected. father came into teh FH witching Friday night. Of course he was blaming child #2 (the mother who spoke up) so John put him in his place. That another parent kept her mouth shut and has been spreading them around since Jan. He dediced that parent #2 isn't evil. I talked to her Saturday, her DD is still clear, but she's not dropping her vigilance.
