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).

That totally sucks Mendy!!!

I love your new family picture...I wish I could see it up close, everyone looks just perfect!

Greg and Nicole Jensen said...

Sorry to hear the bad news. We have had all of those things except pinworms. I am just waiting around for that one. Good luck on the nit-picking.

Julia A said...

Amen, sister. Them bugs won't know what happened. Glad to hear you're winning the war.

Jenni said...

Oh yes lice is the WORST! Ugh! I'm sorry you are going through it! Nit picking is no fun, but I'm sure you'll kill them all in no time!

Jess said...

Sorry about the molluscum, that was our fault.
And you don't mean to say that you're not planning to shave your girls' hair to get rid of the lice??! :)

Cami said...

OH my. It's true. As horrible as the pinworms were, I'd take them any day over lice. Yuck.

Margaret said...

Eww. Just reading this makes my scalp itch.
PS Is tonight the night? If so - I'm sending good thoughts and wishes your way. Know it will be great.

Jann said...

Lice is pretty awful, but neither are any of the other things you are dealing with. I hope it is all a memory at this points.

By the way, you did a fantastic job with your group dating class. Really fun with great information for the kids.

Oh, so sorry!
