A BAD HAIR DAY

I wanted Hannah’s first haircut to be special and had always planned to take her to Melonhead for that first experience. I couldn’t wait to choose between the Spiderman chair or a pink racing car. However, being less than seven months old and still wobbly when sitting, I didn't want to risk a run-in with a pair of scissors, no matter how professional the stylist. In an upright position, the bangs reached past her brows and began to poke her in the eyes. Unless Hannah planned to lay down for the next couple of weeks, I didn’t think her hair could wait for a trim. We didn't always use hair clips either so we did what had to be done. I thought it would be a good idea to give her bangs a trim...um, remember Dumb and Dumber?

I laid her down on the bathroom counter while my husband performed the procedure. Hannah was good and didn’t wiggle, writhe about, or cry, yet she came out looking like we had placed a lopsided bowl on her head and snipped away. At least she still looks cute, but there are professionals out there for a reason. There were a few strays that I got the next morning during breakfast, but it's just not a good haircut.

The good news is that her hair is out of her eyes and she's still a happy baby. The bad news? Her Christening is next week and she looks like Jim Carrey.

Let me know what you think.

Haha, this is so funny! The typical Chinese parents who give their kid a bowl haircut albeit inadvertently.

She looks sweet as ever but honestly Y, what were you thinking???? LOL!

What matters most is Hannah is happy and healthy. She is still a happy and healthy baby regardless of what hairstyle she has. She certainly feels more comfortable with shorter bangs. Look at her sweeeeeeeeeet grin...she is telling her Mom and Dad that she likes her new hairstyle which makes her feel very comfortable. No worries, Hannah is still a healthy, happy, cute beauty.

Hey Yvonne it's Tania Paniculam. Just wanted to say that I think this blogging thing is great. I have read a few of your enteries, and I think you are a great writer. As for being a hairdresser....ummm...but hey, she looks soooo cute! Take Care.

Personally, I LOVE Jim Carrey - but not for his hair. Her smile says that she might really like that look though...
