Beginning of the school year means beginning the conversation.  The best method for prevention is talking about it! If you are not regularly checking your child's hair...start! To take the taboo off this whole lice thing, I am giving you a fun lice poem, a few jokes, and a picture of me and my Holmes daughter double and triple checking for eggs and alive lice, just to help get you through. 

We are all free and clear. ARE YOU???

Spring is in the air

There may be lice in your hair

We are in this together
