Nits is the word....

Gosh, no me?
No, it took me by surprise too!
Yes really!
I’m just so, well so moved.
No Really!
Thank you.
I would just like to say that I couldn’t have done it without my son.
And his friends.
Without them, none of this could have happened to me.
I know, I know, it is thrilling.
It is something that has never happened to me before.
I am almost struck dumb with the emotion of it all.
Really you are all too kind. It should have happened to me when I was much younger.
I am now the proud possessor of ….NITS!
My joys is boundless, I couldn’t be happier – NIT!
OOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH it’s horrible! I can’t stop itching even though I’ve done the Lyclear and the Tea-Tree oil shampoo. I just know they’re still there creeping and crawling in my hair. Living and breathing and excreting and sucking and eeeuuuugggghhhhh doing stuff.
I have managed to go 45 years give or take with nary a nit to speak of and now I feel like I have been infested and I feel horribly dirty and yucky and all because I will cuddle my boy and let him sleep in my bed despite knowing we have had over the past few months a nit problem. I know it was all a matter of time with me living so dangerously but I really thought I’d got on top of them. Now everything is in the laundry and all the hair brushes and combs are being disinfected. Some I fear will just have to be burnt.
I have well and truly learned my lesson and never again will I get complacent about nits. As a family we will all be checked and my trusty nit comb will never be far away as soon as I see my boys fingers reach up to scratch their heads out will come the Lyclear. One can never be too careful you know.
I shall stock pile Tea Tree Oil shampoo and conditioner and no I don’t care if my boys tell me it will make them smell girly…this is war folks and the nits will NOT win!

Bring back the good 'ole nit-nurse into school I say. Gawd. Not much fun for you but it all made great reading. Hope you sort the blighters out soon!

Oh, dear, TW!
This seems like an "insult after injury" event. Your house is budged, and so are you.
The indignity of it all.
I hope the little bug***s are gone in short order.

Sugarplum Kawaii - blighters sorted...I hope!
Rob-bear - does feel a bit insult to injury, but I will prevail and we will be bug free!

Oh Tattie - BIG sympathy from here. I remember the summer of '97 when my then-wee Lillypad came home from Brownie camp with nits. Endless days of nit-picking followed - that and endless loads of vacuuming and incessant laundering of bedclothes and clothing. BIG sympathy!

Been there, got the tee shirt.I am now an expert nit picker and had to go through my wife's hair recently. She has hair like a thick stand of hazel. Perfect hiding place for pheasants and nits. I can share my knowledge off line if you want.

There used to be something called Zeta Zeta , many years ago , that killed everything .
It stank , stripped hair of all oils and dimmed its colour , even stripped the varnish from wooden hairbrushes . But the head lice DIED . The nits still waited in the wings , of course ....
Good luck !
( word verification is spooky ! noshnogl .)
