  1. Oh dear! I’m so sorry you had to go through that but I’m glad you’re able to sit back some and find some of the silver lining in it. I had head lice over and over again as a child. Once my Mom cut my hair so horribly short that I looked like an 8 year old boy in my school picture that year. I hope this is your one and only encounter with the pests.

  2. Ugh — this is why I so seldom comment, can’t type on this keyboard to save my life.

    Trying again: I read but rarely take the time to comment – sorry! God Bless you and all your family for getting through this. Thank you for sharing honestly, I so often think I am alone in my not handling things so smoothly right off. WOW – oh, wow — your mil and you are saints in my book!! It is such a treasure to hear how He brought you through and how you were open to see all the ways He blesses us — even when we feel like we’re sunk! 😀

  3. Thank you for all the comments!

    Casey, I’m so sorry you had to go through this more than once! I have instructed my children that from now on, we will NEVER share hats, scarves, coats, etc. with anyone. Heck, I’m afraid to try on clothing at a store now… or sit in a movie theater… or have my head touch ANYTHING. ewwwwwwww.

    Elizabeth, thank you for commenting! My MIL has been such an inspiration to me. She just lost her husband two months ago, and yet here she is, fighting the good fight with a smile on her face. Her enthusiasm never dims. I hope to be like her when I grow up!

    Rebekka, my husband has already threatened to shave us all! 😉 He was looking forward to being balf, but the rest of us voted him down. Can you imagine a family of 10 bald people? hahahahahahaha!

  4. You forgot one other positive outcome: your house is really, really clean.

    I have heard that tea tree oil is a great preventative for lice. They hate it. So you could put tea tree oil in your regular shampoo (or get shampoo with it already added) and then use that whenever they wash their hair.

    Your MIL sounds wonderful. I wish I had even a smidgen of that saintliness.

  5. Ouiz – Rock On girl! Once again, you prove how awesome our God is – and how He works through the strangest circumstances! You continue to impress and amaze me! Welcome back to the blogsphere! You were missed!

  6. Beth, thank you! He did, although it was a rough ride…

    Hope, you’re right — my house is the cleanest on the block, thanks to my MIL!

    SCG, thank you! Like I said, this has been a rough month, but after we settled in and got our heads wrapped around the idea that this is what we were going to have to do, it got better.

    Still wish you were here. I would have cried on your shoulder (I would have worn a shower cap, though, so you wouldn’t be afraid to be near me! LOL!)
