Yesterday Devin and Lauren had their 7 year old well check (a little late, they were 7 in February). As we were sitting in the doctor's office, I realized that I was wearing the same clothes I was wearing the day before when I was in the office. Embarrassing, yes. But hey- when you have to make 3 trips to the pediatrician in 4 days, and you haven't done laundry... well. Things happen. So, we are sitting in the exam room. Devin is on the exam table and Lauren is on my lap. While she is sitting there, and I am answering doctor questions I notice that she keeps scratching her head. So, as I am talking, I start to check her hair. And, sure enough, she has lice. And so do Devin, Connor, and Declan. And me. Gee, just a little embarrassing. This is our first infestation, and I hope our last. I'm starting to feel a little bit like Job here... with the lice, the strep, and the plague of ants in my kitchen. And if someone doesn't clean up around here soon the "dung-heap" description will certainly be appropriate.
I guess I've moved on from pee and vomit stories. I'm up to parasites.
But on the plus side, I just got an email that the bath store has room freshener on sale, and they have my all time favorite scent- lemon! I am going to drag the boys over there after their gym class this morning. Talk about bulls in a china shop- all that glass and two crazy little boys. I plan to ply them with candy and shop quickly. I need some air freshener! The honey suckle was obviously not a success.
Warning! We have cooties!
