Snip Snip Snip

Brought the kids for a haircut on Monday. CE's hair has grown very long already, covered about 1cm of the ears. Although he's not complaining (and the front hasn't touched his eyes yet), I'd better cut it before everyone thinks I have 2 girls (also to stop his hair-tying requests). As for XY, her fringe has started to irritate her eyes. High time for a visit to the salon.

I purposely brought both of them together so that didi can see jie jie having a haircut, hoping he'd give full cooperation when it's his turn. Jie jie didn't give much problems. She even told the Aunty to cut a bit only as she wanted to keep her hair long. But she likes to open her eyes big big to look in the mirror and talk while the Aunty's cutting her hair till the hair went into her eyes and mouth.

When it was didi's turn, he refused to sit on the chair. So I had no choice but to carry him. He didn't like to be wrapped in the plastic sheet too. And he didn't allow Aunty to touch his head. I tricked him with a lollipop. Told him I'll open it for him after he's done. He seemed to buy it, holding it while I carried him, Aunty snipping away, without any protective sheet. There was hair all over our hands, legs and clothes. As he didn't like the sound of the shaver, scissors were used. So it's slower. After he's warmed up (Aunty tried to play with him), she used the shaver to tidy up the back (with a little bit of protest from him). When he's done, he's totally forgotten about the lollipop.

After lunch, XY asked for a lollipop. I gave CE 3 licks, rinsed it with water, then gave it to jie jie. Well, I did keep my promise of a lollipop treat.

slavemom said...

Joanne, Mummy Gwen, Healy, Juana & Doreen:
luckily he din demand for more. Maybe he knows it's a big treat edi as I dun usually give him sweets. 3 licks better than no licks! hahaha

Paik Ling, yeah... I suppose fussing abt here n there is still better than crying like being slaughtered. hehehe

Jac, hahaha edi cut b4 the complaint. :p

Siew Ting, no problemo. :)

HN, thx for dropping by. That's wat I heard too. ;)

Yatie, it's easier if u know how to snip snip urself. Saves $ too.

Unc Lee, from RM5 (those Aunty shops/Indian barbers) to RM30 (children haircut by pro hairstylist). He's not tried the fancy salons with tv or toys yet. :)

Jazz, I hv to carry him.
