Well, we are definitely atoning today, this Yom Kippur. Yesterday just before I was going to leave to pick up the girls so we could go to shul for Kol Nidre the daycare teachers from their school called to tell me BOTH GIRLS HAVE LICE!
I called Lice Squad to come help us out but they were all booked up, so I took the pesty situation into my own hands, picked up supplies from the pharmacy and then picked up my two little bug heads.
I don't know why this is, but Toronto is an absolute hot bed of lice. It is ALWAYS going around the girls' school and apparently its the same at other schools in the city too. Such a freakin' pain! Or itch, I guess.
I did Big A first and just found a few eggs...Little A on the other hand, ughhhhhhhhhhhhh! I think every louse in North America had taken up residence on her scalp. At least thanks to the shampoo, they were already all dead. Disgusting!!! I treated myself as well, just in case, but came up clean. To be on the safe side, I'm going to be combing out their hair again AT LEAST once every day for the next 7 days, until we have to do the treatment again.
In the end, I spent last night and this morning doing a zillion loads of laundry, and confiscating stuff from the girls' rooms to put into air-tight bags for a while to suffocate any little critters that might be hiding.
In a way its kind of fortunate that its a holiday for us today as Adam and I aren't working and we were going to keep the girls home from school anyways.
Have a happy hump day!
