Hair Cut

Last week, I decided it was time for Reuel to finally have his first hair cut. It was sort of a big deal because I have never sent my boys to the hair salon until it was time for nursery. I usually trim their fringes to keep their hair from poking into their eyes. And, I tend to have many older folks “nagging” at me about letting Reuel keep his hair, that he looks like a girl or he’s suffering due to the hot and humid weather

He is such a sweet lad. Whenever strangers mistake him for a girl and calls him “mei mei”, he would tell them in that innocently surprised voice: “But I’m a boy!” It really melts my heart

Reuel was eager and volunteered to have his turn first. When Zayden was his age, I had to “bribe” him with candy and a short play time at the playground after his hair cut I’m pretty glad I don’t need to struggle for future trips to the hair salon!

The problem with them having the same hairstyle is that we tend to call Reuel “Zayden” instead. It’s really uncanny how alike they are (from the back). I feel that Reuel looks better with long hair! I will most certainly miss his old look.

On Saturday, we had free entry to the zoo thanks to Guan’s cousin-in-law. Personally, animal captivity makes me really sad (now that I’m older) but it brings so much excitement to the kids for them to have a chance to see animals closer without having to go all out into the wild. I didn’t take much photos because we had four kids under 6 years of age–one couldn’t walk, one was learning how to walk and two who only knew how to run

  1. They do look quite different with the hair cut, and I can imagine it would take a little while to get used to it. Hopefully they like it though.

    I can understand what you mean about the zoo. It’s hard when they are captive, and how good a zoo is at looking after them (some are just eh). Kids love it though, I can remember being a kid and going to the zoo, it was so exciting! Although, I used to worry on the way I would get stuck in the tiger pit. xD

  2. Awww they are the cutest! I secretly love it when parents cut their kid’s hair. They look awesome in their new look! I understand how you feel about the zoo. I feel conflicted when I have to bring the kids out for field trip. The meercats are cute! Every other animal looked sad to me.
