Why did God make Lice?

It's 1:00 a.m. and I'm just going to bed because this evening around 6:00 p.m., Abbee found a curious little bug in her brush. After examining her hair in the sunlight, I confirmed that she has the disgusting little creepers crawling in her hair. So, when I got home from church, I treated everyone's hair, washed sheets, picked nits, vaccuumed furniture, boiled hair brushes, and I'm still not finished. I've gotta vaccuum the van, re-wash the linens everyday for a week, and pick more nits. Thankfully, I've only seen bugs/nits in Abbee's hair and no one else's. But, that will not stop me from obsessively checking everyone's hair everyday for the rest of our lives.

Our good friend Alex helped us keep our sense of humor (he was with us when we made the discovery). Abbee was recalling aloud that she had worn Hayden's cap on Sunday to which Alex suggested, "Just call him up and say I'm sorry. When he asks what for, say... Oh, you'll see in a couple of days!"

That totally cracked me up!

Anyway, I guess God is trying to force me to Spring clean...I was really hoping to skip that this year! Is anyone's head itching???


  1. Luke asked Abbee if she could hear the eggs cracking when the baby lice came out!!

  2. Is this something we could celebrate at Pappas too? :)

    Just kidding, I'm sure that's no fun at all!
