The day the hair fairies came to school

"Mommy, the Hair Fairies came to my school today. They checked our hair for head lice!"

Can I just say how awesome it is that someone has created a business around going to preschools and peeking at all those tiny little scalps in search of nits--and then charging parents to get rid of said creepy crawlies? According to their website, they treat lice infestations with nontoxic shampoos, a far cry from the chemical Rid treatments I endured once or twice in my own childhood.

In case you're wondering, Z was (and is) lice free.
