Kiara has LICE again!!!!! And these little minute pests caused total chaos this afternoon!
The school calls me at 14h45 – please come fetch Kiara she has lice!!!!! Now lice is not really life threatening! My desk is PILED high with tons of work that I HAVE to get through before I leave! So I called my mom who was at home already and went to fetch them!
I figure either she will wash Kiaras hair or cook! Get home NEITHER is done!! So I quickly spray Kiaras hair and figure I have 15 minutes to get dinner going. So I fry the onions and throw the stir fry in – while its frying I run Kiara a bath cos now I HAVE to get that stuff off her hair. It CLEARLY states no longer than 15 minutes. While I am putting her in I smell the meat burning. (And hear a yell from the lounge – somethings burning)
Run to put the stove down and throw in the veggies and sauce! Cameron has smelt the food and is now suddenly RAVENOUS. So I heat up their noodles and throw in the gravy.
Back to Kiara to wash her hair – which is pretty painless but then I have to brush it. She starts crying – I brush anyway. She starts yelling – I brush anyway. Then karma whacks me and I slip and push her under the water and nearly dislocate my knee. She is crying. I WANT to cry and the dinner is burning again!
I take a time out. Call my mom to answer something Kiara HAS to ask her – turns out she wants to tell her that I hurt her.
Calm is restored and dinner saved. I keep brushing till it seems to be ok (if you look at the pics of Kiara you will SEE why brushing her hair isnt simple).
Take her out and quickly dry her hair (ok I didnt DRY it I just made it less wet) and dish up for us.
Oh but while I was in the bathroom I noticed one of them hadnt flushed the loo – so I flush but the water is getting closer and closer to the top – I step back bracing myself and eventually it stops INCHES from the top. I took the toilet brush and just pushed and eventually whatever it was seemed to disappear and it went back to normal!
We all manage to sit down and eat dinner in relative calm! While my mom gets up oblivious to the chaos and takes Quadi to dog training.
