Ok, I probably should not be posting all of this. But it is my life and my rant and the chips are just going to have to fall as they may.
At the end of last year Jessie came home from school with head lice. Eeuw. But we dealt with it. As some of you know, she is 4-1/2 and has never had her hair cut. I have not had my hair cut since she was born and it is between my waist and my butt. She passed them to me. Eeeuw. We dealt. I nitpicked until my fingers bled. Literally. But we got over it. It took through January, but we got.over.it. (Though my head is itching again just thinking about it.)
I just came from the school and, oh joy, now they have pinworms going around! What the hell is it with the south?!? When it was announced that there were pinworms in one of the classes many parents piped up with really grotendous stories of how their parents had to deal with them... I never had lice, I never had pinworms, I never had cooties of *any* kind! Is it because I grew up in Montana and life there is just too harsh to pass around all this s*it?
Now I have the joy of looking at my child's butt in the middle of the night with a flashlight... and that is just the beginning. I am opening a bottle of lovely California red right now and drowning my sorrows in AJB Super Tuscan 2002 and 'The Princess Bride' on dvd (J's pick for a treat as D is out of town and she misses her Daddy) .
