OK lets start this bad luck post by saying... I'm trying SOO hard to not be a puddle on the floor!

Where to start... about 2 or 3 weeks ago...
Emily had been itching her head... A LOT! 
So of course I take a look at it and see NOTHING! (or at least that's what I thought!)
So we changed her shampoo and stopped using conditioner and stopped using the de-tangler spray thing maybe it was all bothering her scalp. STILL ITCHING!
I have my mom look at her, Rob looks at her, Robs aunt looks at her... they say they see nothing.
So about 2 weeks go by and of course I'm still trying to figure out why shes itching and what is the source of the itching....
We go out to lunch and I'm sitting next to Em. I look over at her and my eye gets caught by this movement on her head... her hair was up in pig tails... it was a bug! A BUG!!! So I take it off and show my husband who says "That's lice." Like he was saying pass the salt! 
Ive never had lice or seen it or known anyone with it!!
And my little girl has been walking around with it for 2 weeks! 
Talk about feeling like an AWFUL mom!!!
So I freaked a lot!
We all went to the doctors and they gave us an RX for this strong stuff that smelled like it could kill a cat. We put the smelly stuff on our heads for 12 hours!!! And began ripping our home apart to clean and clean and clean some more!!!

Its been a week since then... and no sign of any lice or nits. 
And believe me Ive been checking!! 
Like 10 times a day!
I seriously feel so horrible about this!

So they day after we find out we have lice is a Friday and Robs at work and I'm home with the kids like any other normal day... I'm trying to do the mountain of laundry we have now from yesterdays cleaning  (the sad part was that I was 1 basket away from being done with all the laundry on Thursday!) 
The kids were being sooo crabby so I said it was nap time... of course they didn't sleep and they kept coming out of their rooms saying they were hungry so I made them what they wanted and they eat none of it!! 
OK wait back up a little...
While I was making this lunch they didn't eat Emily said she had to go potty... I told her to go ahead and I would be in in a second, she does and then I hear Jack say "Emily pooped on the bathroom floor!" 
I go to the bathroom and see she had pooped in her pants and didn't tell me so she got it all over the place when she went to sit on the toilet :(
So I cleaned it up, cleaned her up and threw her clothes in the washer...
OK back to lunch
The kids AREN'T eating it! And Jack is talking about how he pooped in his pants and blah blah blah... I know another bad mom moment but I was on the verge of losing it anyways! I told him that I didn't know what he was talking about! In the meantime the laundry is ready to be switched so I go to the laundry room which is right off the kitchen and start switching the loads... and the more clothes I take out of the washer the more it smells like poop!
And I get most of the "clean" clothes into the dryer and see two small nuggets ... I pick one up not knowing what it was (DUH! right!?) ...
well you guessed it POOP! 
I lost it!!
I yelled "Who pooped in the washer!!!?!!"
Like someone really would have taken a dump in the washer! LOL!
But Jack replies "I told you I pooped in my pants Mom!" 
So I clean out the washer and re-wash the clothes.
I tell the kids to go lay back down and really take naps this time! They go while I clean up the lunch they didn't eat.
OK about an hour goes by and I go to check on them... I go to Jacks room and it smells like poop!!!!!
I walk in and ask him if he farted, he said "No I told you I pooped my pants!" and he points to the corner of his room... he has a hiding spot between the wall and the dresser and he changed his underwear and shoved them in there!!! I made him go sit on the potty while I took care of the mess and I checked hi butt to wipe it... but there was no poop!?!?!? I asked him how he was clean and he pointed to his rug...........
I was soooo MAD!
I cleaned him up  and then took all his toys out of his room for that! I seriously took EVERYTHING OUT! I felt so bad :( 
 So Ive made it through this week mostly bad luck free, a free things nothing big... until this morning!
Jack comes out of his room this morning and I asked him why he was wearing different clothes and he goes into this long talk about his dad and the potty and honestly it didn't make any sense! So I went to his room and in his hiding spot were his clothes that he had taken off and then pee'd on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I really don't understand why he is doing this... he has been potty trained for almost a year and has never had so many accidents as he has had in the last couple of months!
Whelp, Emily comes out of playing with Jack and says she pooped in her pants... I clean her up go to put the dirty clothes in the washer and see that I forgot to start the dryer and that the clothes in the washer are soaking wet! :(
Why oh why?!?! 
I feel like my insides are gonna explode!!!

Oh and the kids and I are going to Rhode Island next week without Rob (this is the first time they will be away from him and only the second time in 6 years that I will) this doesn't seem like a huge deal but my kids are seriously attached to their daddy and when he goes to work they act like he's never coming back!
I'm not sure how I will survive next week without him...
Hopefully my bad luck wont follow me there!

Aw hun! What a horribly rough week! I am so sorry hun! I think I would be a mess also! I really hope that everything gets better and I will definitely be praying that the bad luck stays away!
Maybe your son is having accidents as a way of acting out. Have you had your hubs talk to him, like a man to man talk?

I'm thinking about you, beautiful, and I hope your weekend proves to be filled with good luck!

Take care pretty mama!

I am so sorry you had such a crappy time, but that was so funny :( I'm putting a sad face there because I feel bad for laughing, but... you'll reread this post in a couple months and it will be funny :) Like really funny. Lice! Poop! Poop everywhere! You poor thing! I have nothing that tops that.

Oh my goodness, you have been having a rough time!

My cousin used to do that when he was little too. He was just starting potty training at the time, so it's probably different. I think his had something to do with the fact that his brother told him that there was an alligator in the toilet.

It seems like Jack is trying to get attention in a way. I would just try to emphasize the appropriate place to do business and praise the heck out of him when he makes good choices.

Thanks guys! And I do see the humor in it! At the end of the day I can laugh with my hubby... but I wish the poop would stop!!! Please make the poop stop! And now Emily tells people she pooped in the washer!LOL!!!

oh wow....

yeah... that all sounds incredibly frustrating. i have never known anyone with lice, but my cats both had fleas last summer, and that was particularly aggravating. it seemed like weeks before we could get rid of them! and to have never-ending poop in your house from two cute little poop machines? something to laugh at later, but yeah. at least there will be a time when you won't have to clean up poop anymore!

oh my gosh! this sounds awful, but i agree with coralene. you will look back in a couple of months and laugh at all of this.

sending you my happy thoughts.
