My worst fear has now been realized

One of my children has nits. I spent $79 at Walgreens in a panic. That did not include wine...

Just wait 'til you get 'em...

and you will need lots of wine. as well as whine.

my advice to add to your arsenal - a pair of readers - eyeglass magnifiers, the strongest. we got 3.0's I think. it took us several months to finally get rid of the little beasts. the glasses were the trick. we were missing too many of the nits without them.

really, it's more common than you think - your child caught them from another child whose parent didn't treat them quickly enough... and that child caught them from another... and so on.

try to to worry, really!

My kid caught them too - it happens - and I'll let you in to a secret too... they get threadworm now and then too - from some other kid who plays in the sandpit after scratching their ass! Or opening a door handle after scratching... or sharing crayons after scrating...
Nothing you can do about it - it happens!

Your job is to treat it as quickly and effectively as possible - and it looks like you did that.

Be proud - you didn't do anything wrong and neither did your kid!
