There is THAT video of a very severe headlice infestation doing the rounds on social media, which I keep clicking off instantly as it is JUST HORRID!
It did make me think though, Whirling Dervish, we have discovered after the fact, has had a couple of bouts of nits so far.
I am scratching just typing about this.
We have mentioned it to Whirling Dervish that if she gets them again her Mum (or she can) should really let us know as well (I have asked husband to also have a word with WD’s Mum) – cue a big silly mime sequence of hands as bugs leaping from head to head.
Itchy, itch itch.
I am in no rush to sit there with the nit comb and a gallon of conditioner (there may be new fandangled ways of removing headlice, but this is what I remember as a child) and it’s one of the times I will wave the ‘not a parent’ flag if it falls to us to do it.
Surely it’s not unreasonable and in my mind is quite sensible to let the occupants of the home where Whirling Dervish spends the majority of her time outside of school know, so we can all get treated rather than never breaking the cycle?
