Lice Lesson #7: Have patience.

I know you are tired. I know that your kid’s head lice has changed your plans today. But you gotta get those lice and pick those nits. If you just can’t bring yourself to pick, then let me pick. Your panic makes you want to sprint, but if you do that, then you won't be able to complete the marathon. No matter what the makers of pesticides claim, there are no magic elixirs that can take your lice away. Just keep going, one egg at a time. Tomorrow, it won’t take as long. Less time the day after that.

What You Can Do: Don't try to do it all. It will be OK to let some other things go during this time. Take some appointments off your schedule so you can give the lice the "attention" they deserve. Take a break when you need it.
