Yesterday while Little Monkey was staying home because of a cough, I found a problem. I went to shower and wash my head really well (because it had been itchy) and found a creature. Not cool. After my shower, I checked Little Monkey’s head and found live creatures and nits in his head. My day went from not so great to definitely bad. I was freaking out! After some phone calls, we headed to the store to get some lice medicine to take care of the issue. We started washing EVERYTHING. GrandMom came over after work to help me out with treating my head too. It was a hassle but I’m hoping that we have taken care of the problem.
Little Monkey went from this look:
To this look:
Good news is that he doesn’t seem to mind the short hair cut. I like his hair a bit longer, but this made it really easy to treat the bugs. Hopefully this will be our first and last bout with lice with Little Monkey. I’m sure it won’t be….since Little Monkette will probably get them at some point too. Hopefully we got them all and they don’t come back though for a really long time.
