however, after that when i asked him about going back to the salon again in a few months’ time to have his hair trim shorter, he said he doesn’t want to go to the salon to have his haircut, he wants me back to cut his hair, aww~~~ still mama’s his best hairstylist 😀 considering the last 2 haircut i did for him was not too bad, not too bad at all ;P
1st Haircut for Tot
we had wanted to bring him back to the hair salon he last had his haircut, but even the kiddy ride in the salon couldn’t even get the hairdresser at arm’s length to him, and so i had to attempt my 1st boy’s haircut (trimming the fringe is not counted) in the comfort of home…and tada!!
it wasn’t easy, the husb was afraid i chop off alot in an impulse, kept asking me to just trim an inch ONLY, i’m like, “how much is an inch, how do i measure when i’ve a less than willing lil’ tot squirming around the whole time?!” i mean, to even be able to trim ALL around was quite a feat already, but the end result, i must say i’m pretty proud of myself, all things considered.
the tot’s new haircut. sat in a kiddy ride machine with steering wheel while the very friendly, patient & encouraging hairdresser snipped his long mane away. he was ok for most part except towards the end when the shaver’s needed (we had wanted the length to be much shorter than this). he was brave & tried to keep his discomfort in, but the last straw was when a chunk of his hair fell onto his arm. he stared at it in horror, shivered in fear & finally let out a loud wail. and he couldn’t stop for almost an hr, only stopped occasionally to catch some breath, poor kid.
cousins & great pals in the making
the tot wanted to show some affection
although nat’s looking uncomfortable & slightly disturbed here, but he actually smiled & grinned at the tot when he saw the tot’s face up close (i came extremely close to nat, but he couldn’t focus his gaze at me, but he did with the tot almost immediately). his delightful expression at the tot seemed to say, “hey i remember you! you played cars with me while i was in mommy’s tum! did you bring those cars?!” (the tot “drove” his toy cars over Reb’s huge tummy everytime he saw her, haha).
a big hug before the baby went off for his nap.
