Sorry I’ve been late with approving comments. Lice have swept through my son’s 1st grade class, jumping from head to head and plunging parents into a frenzy of emails and nerdy lice-product researching and testing.
I would love to see a slow motion video of how these creatures make the jump from head to head. Do they see a human head coming in and start preparing like “Get ready to jump ship!” ?
Honestly, I am almost ready to just give up and live with the little buggers in itchy harmony. The combing, the washing, the picking. Hours a day of that could be spent wasting in front of the TV or computer!
My current dilemma is what to do about my son’s blue blankie that he sleeps with every night. It is a ball of string that is one vigorous wash cycle away from falling apart. I’m wondering whether I can microwave this every night to kill any offending creatures?
Oh, and a P.S. – If you’re the guy I was sitting next to on the Metra train today, talking about my blog (yes, I randomly accost strangers and direct them to CPSObsessed.com,) don’t worry, my head is clear.
