Last night, rather late, we got an email from my sis-in-law. She was up late doing LOTS of laundry! Seems as though our nephew has a lovely case of head lice.
Biologist that she is, she has pinpointed the source as the beginning fencing camp our Darling Nephew attended not too long ago.
Most of the parents here have already purchased their new fencer the basics, but to those of you who haven't-perhaps the mask and glove purchase could be pushed up a bit. We couldn't stand the thought of our kids face in something that had been sweated in by other people...we never thought of head lice. The glove-well, kids don't wash their hands, so that grossed us out as well.
I will be urging her to contact the club and let them know that they need to wash those masks!
Now join us in a collective "eeewwwwwwwww".
