We had some friends over to play today. Well, if you consider blood sucking parasites friends. I discovered head lice on Camille. What a treat. She must have caught it from nursery because it's been the only time she's been around other kids in the last couple of weeks (I know, we don't get out much). Anyway, we spent a busy afternoon - three full hours - washing with lice shampoo and combing out the nasties. And then washing all of the bedding so we don't have any further cases.
What does lice look like? Good question. Here is a picture I grabbed off the web. This is not my kid, nor did my kid have that much lice. Thank goodness!
If you see this, run - do not walk - to the nearest drugstore and get some lice shampoo.

Is your head itching yet?
