We've managed to avoid this one for the last 4.5 years of school. And we thought we had made it through this time too. Not to be however.
Yup, Liam has lice.
His school has been suffering through an infestation this year that they just can't get rid of. Last week kids were walking in the front door and after a quick check being turned around and walked back out again. Each day brought 4-5 new cases. Even the teachers were getting it and being sent home. Carpets and padded chairs have all been removed from the classes and daily notices have come home.
When Liam was observed to be scratching his head today he was sent to the front desk for a check. And nits were found. I got called to come pick him up. I had them check me too while I was there and I am nit free!!
Now were are home with the washing machine humming away. Hilary has gone to get the required shampoo, comb and sustenance to get us through the day. And then the nit-picking can begin!
