Lice is a pretty expensive problem......my bill for this was around $60
I think we may be in the clear. After a coconut oil treatment, a homeopathic treatment and four 30 minute inspections I have found nothing on M's head. I got checked twice yesterday and I am in the clear as well. That is not to say my head is not itching any more, because I am itchy due to thinking about lice. I find it very strange that I found a lice on M but nothing else. I am deciding that it was just perfect timing and remaining vigilant on daily checks. Seems doing weekly checks on a kids head is really a good idea since a bad infestation of lice is much much more work than a small one. I think it is a miracle I never had lice growing up in florida. That state is just filled with bugs and the humid, warm air is a perfect breeding ground for all things icky. I am shuddering thinking about it. No wonder I fled the day after I graduated high school.
Our close call was a good excuse to vacuum and steam clean my floors. And wash windows, flip the cushions on the sofa, re-arrange M's room and do 8 loads of laundry. Today the cleaning continues on. I have guests this week and I really excited to start planning menus and grocery lists.
Meanwhile, enjoy some photos from this past week. Last thursday was a dress-up marathon for these little ones!
