Riley: Dad told Grandma and Grandpa that he had told me that I shouldn't share with my friends that I have lice. Grandpa said that I would. He was right! I shared with my friends at school.
Me: You did? What did you tell them?
Riley: I don't remember. But I told anyone who wanted to get close to me that they had to stay far away because I had bugs in my hair and I didn't want them to get it.
Me: Honey, we got the bugs out yesterday, remember? There aren't any in there anymore.
Riley: Oh. Really??!! That's great! Hadley told me that she has lice too.
Me: She does? How did she tell you?
Riley: After I shared with the entire class that I have lice, Hadley said that she has lice too! I didn't feel so alone with my lice. It was like someone else had it too and we were together with our lice.
