Can I borrow your headgear?
A letter came home from school about head lice yesterday. Nice. And since that is the last thing we need crawling around over here, I went straight to my hippy friend at Metro Market and she set me up with some Tea Tree Oil Shampoo and concentrated Tea Tree Oil to put behind the kids' ears. She said lice do not like Tea Tree Oil and somehow it "gives them the impression that you are not human". Ok. Well, hopefully the hippy will win out on this one, because it would be awfully nice if this worked as a preventative measure. And in my germaphobe world, option two is pulling Henry out of school. Seriously.
Get to the funny part already! Well, in reading through the pamphlet the Health Department sent home, I found these words of wisdom, "Use disposable shower caps when headgear must be worn by different children." I'm not sure what's grosser, lice or sharing headgear? Yuck. And I'm certain that the only thing geekier than headgear is having to wear a shower cap underneath it? TGIF...tomorrow.
