I just saw a news report on head lice last night on the teevee. The report said that the kids who have had head lice so far this year have not been able to eliminate them with anything bought over the counter.

That there is a “super lice” out there and it will require a prescription from your family doctor to get rid of them.

I remember getting notices from school practically every single year that some kid had head lice. I was so ashamed when I discovered my son had them.

But, according to every medical doctor I spoke to and have heard about in recent years, head lice does not mean that you’re a bad parent and that you’ve let your kid have bad hygiene.

Even so, when it happens most parents get totally freaked out about it. Including me.

You were so not the only parent who had a problem with those damned chairs! When we all moved into the second classroom, every parent made an audible groan when we saw that we’d have to sit in those tiny plastic monsters. You were smart enough to stand in back with the dads, a few brave moms sat in the chairs again (after grumbling about it), and a few of us just sat on the floor. As the Australian mom who sat down in a small chair next to me put it… “Oh not again…I’ve already got a numb bum!”

I remember when I got head lice. I had it twice actually.

Some of my stuffed animals are still in plastic bags in the basement.

I love that college doesn’t have back to school nights. There woudl be no way I could fit it in to my schedule at the moment.

Sarahs last blog post..Still dead over here. Yep.

I sent The Man for Back to School night this year. It’s a good plan, although homework with The Boy is no small task. Ugh! Luckily we have the same teachers.

I hate teachers.
