No more bugs!

It is day 11 since discovering the little friends who had started to make their home in my daughter’s hair.

On day one we used the special shampoo and picked through her hair… very very thoroughly. We also vacuumed the whole house and laundered almost everything that could be laundered. Then, I packed up all of the soft toys that could not or should not be washed and put the bags on our back patio.

Day two and I picked through her hair, vacuumed, laundered more stuff, changed her bedding, crossed my fingers and called it done.

Day three, more hair picking, vacuuming, laundry and bedding changes.

Day four, you guessed it, hair picking morning and night, no laundry, but changed up the pillow case on her bed.

Days five, six, seven and eight, more hair picking twice a day.

Days nine and ten, hair picking and the usual laundry.

Day eleven… I have cautiously determined that the bugs are gone. Knock on wood.

My head still itches though, but I’m pretty sure that it’s just due to my skin being dry because of all the dehydrating liquids I’ve been consuming.

About dirtyrottenparenting

I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home. I love Mondays because I can return to the world of adults, go to the bathroom alone and have nearly uninterrupted conversations with others.

    It is the absolute worst! I told my husband that if one of the kids ever gets it again I wanted all of us to leave and stay somewhere else for two weeks so the bugs can die and I won’t have to wash everything in the house that can fit in the washer! Nice thought but then they came back a few weeks later (one original I think held on and stayed alive) and we of course stayed in our home and I did nonstop laundry and combing for days. The worst!

  2. This is one of my biggest fears right now! My daughter has so much hair, so I keep it in twists or plaits as much as possible and hope for the best…
