Lice = Time With Mom

Sometimes, when you have 6 kids, it’s difficult to give your undivided attention to any one of them at exactly the time they want/need it. I suppose that’s true for any family, really, no matter the number of children.

Of all of our kids, though, Mia needs the most attention.

It became clear that I need to carve out extra time devoted exclusively to her when she looked at me all puppy-eyed and said:

“Remember when Bell gave all of us lice a few years ago? That was kind of awesome because you spent a lot of time just, like, brushing my hair and just hanging out with me in the bathroom…just you and me.”

She instantly broke my heart and made my head itch.

Surely we can find time for fro yo and hair brushing while avoiding that pesky lice infestation from back in the day.

Is your head itchy? It’s totally itchy, isn’t it?
