Lice

I was telling someone the other day about all the things you hear about as foster parents that you think you will not have to deal with. Until you do, and then you realize you should have paid closer attention.

So there I was at 10:30pm last night frantically looking for lice advice on the adoption.com forum while sitting outside the drugstore. The 24 hour one 15 minutes away because the one on my corner closes at 10pm.

We had gotten the note from daycare. I didn't think much of it. Then as I was helping Mr. Mohawk dry off in the shower I noticed some stuff in his hair. I'm not 100% sure but I wasn't taking any chances.

Poor thing was up until almost midnight while we deloused his head. Then he had to get up and go to his visit. He had a bad dream- he was left alone outside.

I will never let that happen my sweet boy. Never.

  1. Message me at cherubmamma@gmail.com if you want my lice advice. I've been through it before with two little ones that came to me with drug resistant lice. I was able to clear them up completely with Listerine. It's easier than picking out all the nits and it works because the alcohol in the Listerine keeps the lice from closing their spiracles (how they breathe). They then drown when you wash the hair. It's completely pesticide free so you can use it as often as necessary. The only side effect is slightly minty fresh hair. :)
