Now let me back up a bit, month is crazy busy and I am planning a wedding and each child has their own extra curricular activities with the exception of my youngest and life could not be any busier.
So my fiance and I had discussed earlier in the day, that we finally had a night to ourselves once the kids went to bed to plan some last minute wedding things that still needed to be completed. I went into the basement to get the laundry and I hear this awful shriek from my daughter, Kimora, the diva.
It wasn't one of those hurt cries, it was one of those cries like, "I am going to be in trouble".
My son Xavier comes running into the basement and says, "Mom, Kiki pooped in her tights and skirt" and frustrated, I walked upstairs and removed her from the stairs and placed her on the toilet to deal with that... THAT IS NOT THE NIGHTMARE..... THE WORST IS YET TO COME!
Of course, after such an incident, I brought her upstairs and threw her in the shower to clean her up and wash her hair and begin to get her ready for bed. I walked in my room to get the lotion and my fiance says "Nicole, we have a problem" so I walk out the room thinking, WHAT NOW, and he says "I think Kimora has LICE"
NOT MY DAUGHTER!
So I grab my "intelligent" phone and Google "what does lice eggs look like" and sure enough the nightmare was a reality.... my daughter has lice!
Now I started panicking and almost crying, and my daughter was actually pretty calm and my fiance was trying to get me to relax, but I am scared of house flies, let alone something that spreads so easily and clings to hair, which would be impossible to get out of my curly hair, a lot more simple for my dead straight hair daughter.
I ran to the store and bought the shampoo needed to remove the "nits" *I cringed as I typed that* and we had to dry her hair before we could throw her BACK in the shower. We washed her hair with the special shampoo, which is more like oil, and took the stupid little nit comb and began picking out the eggs. Well excuse me, I should not give credit where it is not due. I did not pick anything out. My fiance picked out all the "nits".... 4 hours later he was still picking it.... all while I researched everything you could think of regarding lice.
I even found out there are companies that you can hire to come to your home and remove the lice for you!
I had just had surgery and was in so much pain but I did not let that stop me from vacuuming the whole of the house at 1am in the morning and washing everything in the rooms. I dragged my boys out of bed to remove there sheets and check their beds and heads, and I spent the entire night scratching my head and waking my fiance to make sure there was nothing there.
Fortunately, my fiance did such a great job removing the "nits" nothing else was found in the house and nobody else suffered from the nightmare.
I would not wish this on my worst enemy, just when you think as a parent you have experienced it all.... you get smacked in the face with the unthinkable....
Parenting is a rewarding job..... RIGHT!!!!
Now we take serious preventative measures, and EVERY DAY, I put tea tree oil behind my childrens ears, and we all sleep with rosemary in our pillows, AND I use coconut oil on the kids, these are all things Lice hate!!
GOOD LUCK HAPPY PARENTING!
