I could give you a blow by blow of yesterday's battle with the headlice that has been going around Kaia's school, and finally hit her. But, I won't, because you are probably all scratching your heads as it is. I still am. None of that story will ever be in a scrapbook (if I ever had the ambition & creativity to scrapbook in the first place).
What I will show you is why it isn't fun with Kaia. She has my hair. A very full head of hair. Just trying to see the scalp is an adventure. I have my hair cut so that it is thinned and can lay flat on my head, but I didn't always.
My hair was naturally puffy, the curl was not. The perm probably made the puffiness worse. Luckily today, I have a good haircut and a straightening iron. As for free time? Not so much, I will be spending at least an hour a night with the special metal comb (the plastic ones broke in Kaia's hair) making sure she is lice free.
For more photos that won't be in a scrapbook, and stories that won't make your skin crawl as much as this one, head over to Kristin's at We are That Family.
