Papa’s brother-in-law gave us a little hair cutter that his mother used to own and we immediately put it to use on Ted.
His previous (and first) haircut cost us $22 and we were not keen to spend that on a regular basis (that’s the kiasu thrifty mum in me speaking).
So we set out to give his hair a good trim. It looked easy enough at the barber’s but it was not easy for amateurs like us. It took us a good half an hour which involved a lot of trying to keep him distracted from squirming too much as well as going over the same areas repeatedly because there were some stubborn tufts that refused to be cut.
When we were finally done (or rather, gave up) we had a smart looking baby, albeit with some tufts still sticking out from behind his ears and some longer strands around the nape of his neck. I do say this guy’s ready for the Chinese New Year!
