If you follow mommy23monkeys on Facebook then you may know that we found LICE *gag* on Nathan’s head yesterday.  Let me make something perfectly clear…


I overheard Bob having a little conversation with him in the late morning and Nate said, “my head is itchy.”  I was getting ready to go run some errands and didn’t pay much attention.  Went on my merry little way.  When I came home, Bob met me in the driveway.

“I think Nathan has lice.”

I just looked at him like he had three heads.  My little boy does not have lice!  How does a little homeschooled kid with barely a social life even get something like this?!  I took him inside to have a look.  Surely Bob has been smoking crack.

What I saw were about 4 little brown “bugs” crawling around.  YUCK!  But I told Bob, “these are not lice, Nathan has fleas.”

For some reason fleas seemed better than lice.

But a quick google search confirmed.  Lice.

Dirty rotten little bastards.

Bob went back to the store to buy some (holy shit SO expensive) lice killing products and Operation Delouse was put into full force.  I spent the entire afternoon yesterday treating everyone’s head (including my niece that I was babysitting….sorry Bro), gathering laundry and then cleaning the boys’ bedroom from top to bottom.  Let me tell you how much fun that was.  Not.

Last night my washing machine started giving me errors.  Please for all that is Holy don’t go out on me now!!

Have you dealt with lice??  Please help.  Send reinforcements.  Give me some tips.  What products have you used to get rid of them?
