    Default Mad and embarrassed

    Ok so all of you my son started kindergarten a few weeks ago and you all told me all these horror stories. Well there is one you all forgot to tell me, the gross stuff that passes through schools. After three days of being there Cameron caught what we thought was a little cold. Well fast forward 2 weeks and he was still coughing, so we took him to the dr. and it was bronchitis (got that beat though)
    Well Friday my husband and I had a wedding rehearsal to go to (I was the photographer and he had to play his guitar) so Cameron stayed with my sister in law. We got home around 7:30 or so and Mark went to pick him up and he didn't want to come home just yet so we let him stay a little while longer. My sister in law called me and said that Cameron had been scratching his head alot. SO she checked him and guess what she saw!!! Yep you got it, LICE!! I was SOOOOOOO mad and embarrassed. My kid is not a dirty child and we scrub his head nightly (I know lice is not a dirty kid thing, but still) so I sent my husband out at 9:30 to get a remedy for it and we doused him with the stuff and combed and combed until almost midnight. I boiled all of his clothes and bed sheets. The next day I didn't see too many lice in his hair except for a few dead ones. He stayed with another sister in law Saturday while we were at the wedding and said they didn't see anything. Well he got home today and I saw like three little dead ones on the nape of his neck so I went BACK to Walmart and got a stronger remedy and I combed his hair out with that painful little fine tooth metal comb again for about an hour. There is NO LICE AT ALL now!!
    Now I have to tell his teacher tomorrow that someone brought lice to school and they need to check EVERY head, I just hope nobody makes fun of him or avoid him at all. In fact I pray that his name is never mentioned. It scares me to think of anyone making fun of him for something that is NOT his fault. He didn't start it.
    I am sorry this post is so long but I had to vent, stuff like this makes me angry because somewhere out there is a child scratching like crazy and the parents aren't paying attention to it. I know it happens and it is nothing to fret over, but it makes my skin crawl.
    Thanks for listening to me rant. I am not usually a freak out sort of mom, but this is something else.

    In "my house" language they are "disgusting little ______" that MUST GO!!! hee hee.
    We didn't actually call them lice in front of Cameron, I didn't want him to go to school proudly announcing he had lice. We just called them little bugs. Don't know if that was the right thing to do but it seemed right at the time, plus I am taking him to the school nurse first thing tomorrow morning and have her clear him to go to his class and plus telling his teacher and let them put out the head check announcement.
