K- came home last night and told me, "You know, J- told me that A- has lice."
"K-, I need to check your hair."
"But mom, I wasn't even around A-."
I asked her if A- had said anything. She said no, that it had only come from J-. I told her that it is important that she not say anything to anyone and that if A- did have lice, it wasn't her fault and sometimes that just happens.
Then I checked her head. It checked out a-okay. I also have her use tea tree conditioner, which is supposed to act as a repellent. We started using that last year during the VBS lice incident.
Let's face it. Head lice happens. I had it several times as a kid and survived it just fine. It's not to say that I want to deal with it. Yuck. I did e-mail Mrs. S- with a heads up. (No pun intended.)
In the meantime, K- went to school with her hair wound up into Gabriela knots.
Smiles in my day:
- I'm stunned at how many kids got the word 'leprechaun' right on the spelling tests last week. The wall was full of excellent spelling tests. Hooray!
- Getting some school work pulled around last night. I'm busy pitching an idea for a membership drive to the Principal.
Have a great day!
