Mummy, eye pain pain. (Due to natural curl, Yvette has a mushroom-head hair style. Her hair length has long exceeded shoulder.)
We been hearing this from Yvette for more than 2 weeks and we decided to bring Yvette for a hair cut. Off we went to the Junior League at United Square. (We have asked her many times whether she wants to have hair cut. She agrees.)
She didn’t fuss & was super cooperative. The hair cut took less than 15 mins to finish.
Yvette before the cut.
And after cut…
Hehe, we couldn’t take a picture of her with her new hair style. It was short and bob. We like it so much. So much neater.
She got two stickers too.
Since I removed Yvette from disposable when Yvette was 20mths, I need to bring plenty of plastic bags. This is to to bring soiled / dirty items home when I changed her out. Although it is not too difficult to find plastic bag while we are out if we have forgotten to bring extra, but I really find we are producing waste by using plastic bag all time. (Usually I reuse the plastic bag as trash bag when I removed Yvette’s soiled/dirty items.)
So I been looking out to find a suitable wet bag. I been reading Mummy’s Reviews™ even since I stumped upon her blog via this entry. Since then I know about this brand.
We were at Tangs today after Yvette’s class and I spotted this familiar brand immediately. I picked up the cotton diaper and have a feel of it. This diaper is really different from Bumwear. The material is definitely lighter and it is flexible. It can be used from cloth diaper to training pant. I like the colour too.
So I look around and see what other product in store and i spotted this – Moo Moo Kow™ Wet Bag. I remembered MieVee recommended a wet bag to me. I accepted the concept and think I should give it a try although it is not the same brand she recommended. This is a multi purpose bag too and it got a handle attach to the bag (where the wet bag recommended by MieVee doesn’t have it.)
P/S: This is not an review. It is a product I think it worth getting it (especially it is selling at 20% off at Tangs now) although I have not used it.
Not me, I am not the one who cut Yvette’s hair this round. It was the stylist who we been using for home service. My sister did her rebonding at home and Grace was here.
It was not the first time Yvette met Grace and she was getting much comfortable with her around too.
We kept asking her whether she wants to have hair cut but she was indecisive. Finally before Grace was going to leave, we prompted her again and finally she decided. She said Ok and then Grace asked her to bring her chair over to the balcony there the cutting of her again. (She is due for a proper hair cut. The last cut was more than 4 months ago.)
She took her chair and sat onto it in the balcony. She remained still most of the time and was fully aware what was happening. Of course I sat with her and talked to her. From time to time, I also need to hold onto her and playing iPod with with her.
Grace didn’t cut it very short for Yvette and she did not use a razor too. And here’s the end result.
Grace charged me S$8 for the cut (which I find it is ok. My SIL find it expensive.) and I am thinking we shall let Grace cut Yvette hair in the future.
Here are some of our Parenting Experience on getting a child into mood (over coming their fear) for cut:
- Whenever we passes by hair salon, we will pause (most of the time) standing out there and telling Yvette the people in there are cutting their hair.
- We brought Yvette along to salon when D needs to cut his hair. This has further letting Yvette understand of the “meaning” of cutting hair. (Sit still when hair need to be cut – I will explain to her the procedures from time to time in the salon.)
- I am lucky to have a stylist who come to our house to do my hair for me and Yvette gets familiar with her. (So Grace is not a stranger to her although she only see her like 4-6 months interval. Tots has superb memory. Mind you!)
Hope our experience helps.
We were back to National Skin Centre for Review over Yvette’s skin condition this morning since our last visit 6 weeks ago.
Although we know Eczema will not go off even when the duty care is being carried out but we should see improvement and I am happy to let the Doctor In Charge know that Yvette’s condition is more or less under certain extend of control.
Throughout the last 6 weeks, we only encountered once patchy rash appearing on her tight on 24.07.10 and nothing worse than that ever.
However, if you ask me how come she had those rashes appearing, honestly, I have no idea.
Going forward, we will be going back to the GP and will not be visiting this doctor again unless Yvette’s skin condition worsen.
