I was planning on an early night tonight. I had given myself permission to crawl into bed once the kids were all tucked away.
But like usual, my plans don’t always work out.
I could tell my 8 year old had gotten a second wind and knew if I tried putting both her and her sister to bed, she would end up bouncing off the walls and keeping my early-to-bed daughter awake. So, I let her bounce around in my room.
I was getting my bed ready for her when she complained for the millionth time how her head still itches. Realizing that she was about to lay her itchy head on my pillow, I told her I wanted to take a look just to make sure there wasn’t anything wrong, knowing full well what I was really looking for.
Whoop, there it is.
And bonus! The other one has it too.
I guess I’ll just have to wait till the morning to check out my boys.
So when you’re over-dramatic daughter tells you her head itches, don’t blow her off and tell her it’s probably just a dry scalp. Cause you’ll pay five days later when you have to stay up till 11 at night doing laundry and combing through her hair. Ugh.
Linking up for Five Minute Fridays.
