Head Lice - It's True - page 6

Tuesday morning I was brought a bug in a zip-lock bag. The bug had been just removed from a head. It was a, robust, adult head louse - judging by it's size. It appeared to be very agitated as it was... Read More

    Awww, and to keep it OT, did your son learn about lice, both private and public, in school?

    I've been a mess since my kid went to college. I'm a real mush when it comes to my boys.
    They bust my chops all the time and Dawwww, I miss that!

    Hang in there. It's all good. I promise.
    I'm so sorry for your friend's loss.

    Well huffmannurse, by now you know I have an opinion about everything and I must and want to disagree with you. First of all, YOU brought that bundle of joy into this world and have been there ever since to put your needs behind his/her needs, you've been there through "thick and thin," joy, anxiety, good times, bad times, cuddles, fights, fear, celebration, worry, worry, and more worry. You have come to that bittersweet time to let em go so Girl, you have earned those tears. This is a time to cry for joy and celebrate this wonderful child and wonderful accomplishment. Second, I promise, your compassion and love for the music teacher will be much more appreciated by you sharing your emotions with her versus your attempt at a stoic, stiff upper lip, performance.

    Even being this burly, testosterone oozing, specimen of masculinity that I am - I cried as #1 graduated, #2 graduated, and all the end of year activities for them, and I'll cry at #3's graduation, and #4, and #5. I put in the time and I earned it; their mom, my sweet petunia, helped too of course but she cries about everything.

    Yes, as a matter of fact he has learned about both types. Both at home and school. Kids who grow up with parent that is a school nurse... are soooooo lucky :0

    Why is it that the head lice looks like it's giving 4 thumbs up, but the "public" lice is only giving 2 thumbs up? Shouldn't it be the other way around??
    I guess the 'public' lice had the unfortunate luck of landing a home on the 92 year old with cooter jewelry?

    I have been cracking up over this thread; I was way behind on my catching up, so I just read and chuckled, cackled, and snorted through the previous 4 pages. Ah, it's good to laugh after a double-crappy day. You all are so funny and smart and APPRECIATED!

    Bedazzled parts, cooter jewelry, "public" lice...

    I am not a school nurse but I hope you won't mind if I hang out here more because you are fun and cool.

    I'm not a school nurse either, but this seems to be where to cool kids hang out!
