Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

If you were cuddling with your kid late at night and you saw lice...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
If you were utterly exhausted and about to slip into a deep sleep...your kid was already out...and then you saw a louse run through your kid's hair...

Would you pretend you didn't see it and go to sleep, promising yourself you'd take care of it first thing in the morning? Or would you drag your exhausted ass out of bed, get your kids up, run to the store, and work through the night cleansing their hair and sheets and everything else?

I would have to get out of bed. It wouldn't matter if it was in my hair already or not, I'd keep having that itching feeling.

I would put olive oil in their hair and wrap hair in towel and send them to bed.

Next day, it takes far too many hours to clean up that mess, and comb the hair out. Kids asleep, one more night isn't going to change much....

Morning

I'd let my kid get rest because the next morning was going to be a nightmare. (plus, the only store in our village is already closed)

Plus you really need that morning sun to see those little nits.

Quoting smurfbitebug:

I would probably flip the fuck out, honestly. Lice and bedbugs, man. I have never encountered either and yeah. I would be that chick for a minute. I would.



And then I would buckle down and take care of it right then and there.

This. I had lice as a kid and it wasn't too bad, but I would probably be the one headed to Walmart at midnight if my dd had it.

I would get the mayo, cover there head in it, wrap it in a shower cap or plastic sack tied tight and let it sit for the night.

Or maybe I'd put gasoline in his hair like another mother did a couple months ago. (I'm completely kidding, btw)
