Big Sexy Hair

Avery was admiring her reflection in the side of our car. (She was waiting for me to get outside and unlock the door.) When I walked up to her, she said to me, "my hair looks so beautiful and curly. Don't you think so?"

I said, "oh yes. It's just gorgeous."

She said,"yep! It's nice 'n sexy!"

I said, "well, I don't know if I would say that".

She said, "why? What does sexy mean? I thought it meant beautiful, curly hair."

I said, "I guess it can mean something like that."

I did another lice treatment on my kids. I figure it's better to be safe than sorry. Anyway, the product recommends doing it 7-10 days after the first treatment. I'll probably do it tomorrow too. Again, just to be safe. I also washed pillowcases (again) and sprayed their pillows and mattresses (again). I threw away their pillows on the day it was discovered. The critters live in them. If you don't get rid of them, they'll keep coming back from now, until the end of time. I'm hoping that by spraying the new ones, it will keep it from coming back because they never had the chance to settle in. It's so annoying that you can't simply treat their heads and have it all go away forever. You have to treat their entire environment. Like, the whole house from top to bottom. Bedding (on every.single.bed.in.the.house, ugh), coats, back backs, shoes, everything. It's so tiring. I've vacuumed so much in the past week, I'm surprised the vacuum hasn't dropped dead. I've even steam cleaned my carpets. I've sanitized/done everything I can think of. If the monsters come back, I don't know what I'll do. (I know exactly what I'll do. Throw the biggest, screaming hissy fit you've ever seen.)
