Officially tick season!

And what a way to find out. Kaitlen just had a shower and we were getting ready to go to Bens brothers house and he has a 5 y/o daughter whom kaitlen just loves and Emily always has her hair done and i knew K would want me to do her hair too. One of the few times she lets me touch her hair. So i sprayed detangler in it and decided to use my fingers as a comb and i saw something brown on the top of her head. once i moved her hair out of the way i could see it was a tick and it was imbedded in her skin....uggg gross. So i told her to hold on she had a peice of dirt in her hair and i had to pull it out. The poor girl would have freaked if i told her she had a bug stuck in her head. She did say ouw when i pulled it out, but then was fine. now to treat the yard............

Better a tick than lice ... several friends have fought the lice battle lately with their kids, and I get exhausted just listening to how much clothes washing, vacuuming, hair washing, nit picking, bagging up of pillows and toys, etc, must be done. But you're right ... anything crawling on your kid's head is downright disgusting! Get Ben spraying FAST!

I have somehow managed to escape lice and scabies. I have many years ahead of me get a lovely visit from them so i won't hold my breath.
Cody hasn't had any letters sent home about lice so thats good. I remember when thomas was in 1st grade there was this one girl who constantly had lice.

Yeah anytime we here about lice around here we prematurely run to walmart and get everything we can to clean our house and hair even if we do not have it cause that stuff is awful on the kids. It is not hard to get it either, just a difficult thing to get rid of if you have girls especially.
It is not a dirty thing to get just dirty to keep it is what I say!
