Ew! Gross! Yuck!

List of disgustingly gross parasitic and/or viral ailments from which one or more of my beautiful children has suffered:

Warts? Check.

Molluscum? Check.

Toenail fungus? Check.

Athlete's foot? Check.

Pinworms? Check.

Lice? Check.

Frankly, I thought the pinworms were the worst thing in the world. But hand on heart, I'd rather deal with the ick-factor of pinworms every month for the rest of my life than deal with the combo ick- and endlessly-pick factors of lice one more time.

It's nearly done me in, but I am winning. Some little parasites think that they are going to compromise my daughters' heads? Think again, little suckers (no pun intended).
