jackalope

amanda's comment yesterday reminded me that i snapped another photo of jack post haircut. he actually loves his short hair (this is the cut he gets every summer.) it's not pink, purple or heliotrope, but he did pick out a red gel for himelf...



day eleven found us in the pediatrician's office, getting a prescription for the good stuff. if, by good stuff you mean gooey cream that he will have on his head for 8 to 14 hours. turns out the little buggers are resistant to the Rid. tenacious little nits!

You are a saint. And Amanda's Jakalope was hilarious.

Ooh, I hate even the word "nit"! Let's hope the good stuff works pronto and you can put all this behind you...

I'm glad he's resorting to a bit of creativity at this time!

Yikes, I hate it when viruses and buggy-insecty things develop resistance to toxins. What was God thinking when he created head lice??

ok seriously, why do we have to have a prescription for the good stuff? why on earth is that not available over the counter so you don't have to have a "day eleven"? that's craziness, i didn't even know they could be resisitant to RID. i'm so sorry! good luck with it all.

Jack doesn't look the least bit perturbed in any of the pictures. What a cute boy you have!

Why, oh why, do you always have to wait for the "good stuff". Why can't you just start with the "good stuff"?

Love the hair cut and color! My husband's boys are never against getting a hair cut. They always ask for "mohogs." I always think, "It's just hair, why not let them have fun during the summer." But I can never bring myself to allow a mohawk. We have indulged them in some colored gel with a faux-hawk, though.

I had to read back several posts to understand what was going on and now that I am caught up all I can say is, "Oh NO!"

I haven't had to deal with lice so I can't even give you any good advice. So sorry. For you AND Jack!

Oh, and he really was handsome in that Christmas picture!

Hopefully this will be the last of those nasty bugs. Love the new do!

I am glad you didn't shave it all off! He's got such blue eyes- lucky guy.
He is a cutie!

I hope you survive that almost-certainly-biohazardous "good stuff!" Sheesh.

"Tenacious little nits"....hmmmm...I'm going to have to file THIS phrase away for future usage: like when I go back to work teaching middle school.
