Think you’ve heard all of the funny parenting stories?
Here’s one about lice.
Someone was recently speaking about it, and it made me laugh.
One of my kids brought home lice once.
It was awful.
But I have boys, so it was pretty easy to get rid of it.
I shaved their heads.
My older boy has very dark hair, so even with a buzz cut he had a dark cap.
My little guy was blond back in the day.
He looked goofy with a shaved head, but he didn’t care.
I told him that he doesn’t need to discuss the lice with his kindergarten class.
It’s nothing to be ashamed of.
It’s just private.
He had to be inspected by the school nurse before he was allowed back in class.
Of course, that meant that we were late.
He made a Grand Entrance into his classroom and declared loudly, “I have lice!”
So much for discretion.
All the kids oohed and aahed.
By the end of the day, all the kids wanted to have lice.
They all wanted a buzz cut too.
Even the girls.
Yep, the kid was a trendsetter, even back in kindergarten.
