A HAIR CUT!!
My mum was totally troubled by all the idle chatters with the aunties and grannies whenever she brought Xi En to the playground downstairs.
The well-meaning advices by these aunties led to Xi En’s first hair cut! It’s the belief that a first hair cut will aid in future thicker hair growth.
His hair is fine (I thought so in a different way) and little – thus we did not conduct the traditional first-month hair cut/shave. Of course we couldn’t have done it anyway as he was still in the hospital fighting to survive then! Who cares about hair cut seriously when there are other more acute matters on hand.
But the time has come.
Mum was adamant on it. Kim wasn’t keen on it. I was…..neutral.
And so we marched off to a neighbourhood barber today!:
I was probably more nervous than my boy. I was worried that he might fidget; the blades might cut him.. the worries were endless..
But it turned out lots better than I had imagined!
Getting ready – Barber Uncle draped on the superman cloak:
Totally unsuspecting boy:
First shave. Xi En was totally unfazed by it. That’s my boy.
Good Boy; sitting still:
Oppsie – Half-time; he needed a distraction. Barber Uncle gave him the sweets box which worked. The container; not the sweets.
Getting all ticklish at the back!
Barber Uncle’s hands are so BIG! No escaping from his clutches! haaaa
Hey Hey Pesto! My little cool cucumber!
