Back to nursery

We arrived back from holiday yesterday, I didn’t get a chance to blog while away as I had no real internet connection on my laptop or tablet but I did post some pictures on our Instagram and facebook pages, hopefully I will get some time to write about our break this week as C is back in nursery.

Today was C’s 1st day back into nursery so of course that means the obligatory 1st day photo šŸ˜€
I personally love these photo’s and love to look back at the ones my parents took on our 1st days of school.

So here it is C’s 1st day of Preschool ( nursery) 2016



Front door


Today was herĀ first full day in nursery as last year she only did mornings,Ā I chose to send her for 2 full days and one half day this year for a couple of reasons.
1) I am going back to be a student so will be in uni or on placement most of every week.
2) As a form of childcare because it would be too much for my mum to have her everyday.
3) To help her get used to longer days before she startsĀ school next year.
4) she is a social child and loves to play with other kids, so nursery is a great place for her to interact with other kidsĀ and learn as well.

I’ve just been to pick her up and she loved it šŸ˜€ she played in home corner with the dolls, had outdoor play and got messy with playdough.


Time to wash her uniform for tomorrow, I think I’m going to have to buy some more uniform tops as her others are too small, I have a couple of skirts and a pinafore so that’s no problem.

We have little visitors… head lice!

Sorry if I have made you itchy, I know that I am every time I even think of nits.

Since C started nursery in September I have been waiting for them to appear, I had bought combs ready and on Friday after her scratching for a couple of days I combed her hair and found just a couple of the little buggers.

You’re probably wondering why I didn’t do it sooner, well she had had her nasal flu vaccine a week before, had a cold and came out in a rash on her neck that I assumed was connected to the vaccine or viral.
We gave her Piriton and after a few days of her still scratching I checked her hair where I found theĀ evil little buggers.


So on Saturday morning I smothered her head in Tesco’s head lice treatment and then left it for an hour, added tea tree oil to her shampoo and washed it out. I then combed it again, only a few there, so I think we caught them early.

I have been washing her hair and using a conditioning spray that I have added tea tree too and combing daily, only juvenile ones there so at least I know that they will soon be gone.

I just hate the little invaders but suspect that we will have visits from them again in the future as kids will be kids and the way that they play in nursery and school means that they easily spread.

Remember to check your kids heads regularly!
I’m now off to wash my hair and check it again as they make my skin crawl just thinking about them.
