First Lollipop

CE had his first FULL lollipop last Friday. He's eaten lollipops before but just a few licks only. At first, he bit it. He doesn't know how to lick it inside his mouth. After a demonstration from jie jie and some practice, he's a pro already. And he really enjoyed his treat.

So why did he get to eat a whole lollipop on his own?

Because he behaved very well during his haircut (his 5th).

~ hair combed neatly by the barber ~

Notice the cut and bruise on his forehead? He hurt himself 2 days earlier (Wednesday). He was running and slipped on the floor mat. Fell face down and knocked his forehead on the tiled floor. Anyway, the cut is barely visible now.

I brought him to the Aunty's salon but it was closed. There's an Indian barber right next door, where he had his very first haircut when he was 20 months old. Too lazy to bring him to the fancy salon with toy car (difficult to find parking), we ended up in the Indian shop.

As usual, he protested when the barber wrapped the plastic sheet around him. I've tried to prepare him weeks ago. I've been telling him that if he wants to have a haircut, he needs to be wrapped up. I even demonstrated with his towel (as often as I could remember) after his bath. Every time he'll say "Ok" or "Yes". But when it comes to the actual situation, it's a different story. Can't really trust kiddo's words yeah. :D

So I gave him a lollipop to hold and kept asking him not to pull the plastic. Promised him the lollipop after he's done. It sort of worked. He didn't fuss much but when he saw a lot of hair on the sheet, he tried to blow them away or push them with his hands underneath. But overall, I'd say that was one of his most well-behaved sessions.

CE look so smart! Maybe because he behaved well thru the hair cut session, so the hair cut is nicely done.

He is so obedient ya. When mommy said cannot open the lollipop, he just obey the instruction.

When I saw the cut on the forehead, my heart had a chill. cos' my elder one had a cut when he was 1+. And the forehead split open. Had to go to A&E on CNY somemore! *sigh*
