Today we played "barber shop". Tanek wasn't exactly a willing player but he endured the best he could. It beat the alternative of going to get his hair cut somewhere else. First off, this black cover didn't stay on for anytime. We had hair all over him and me and everywhere. I am definitely NOT a beautician. I don't really know how to cut hair at all, but I worked at it until at least you couldn't put a ponytail on top of his head. Everyday one of his favorite things to say to me is "Nana, you are not sad, you are happy". I always tell him yes, I am happy. While I was cutting his hair he sat there and said "I'm not happy". Usually he always says he is happy. Well after we got his hair cut and gave him a shower and got all the hair off of him and me and he was all clean and hair free he was happy again. I am sure the haircut will need some adjusting by mommy and daddy, but it is a work in progress.
Above the look of dread. Below, I'll humor you for a short time. Let's get it over with.
