Brave Daddy

Daddy did something very brave today. He decides to bring little Nic out for a hair cut ALL BY HIMSELF!! My maid and I were actually quite worried that he couldn't handle him but I tried to refrain myself from discouraging his effort to bond with him. We just keep reminding daddy to be patience with him if he is unable to soothe him when him cries. So after briefing him on what to do and what to expect, the two of them took their first ever "Daddy and Son" outing.

After an hour or so, daddy came home with a half naked and very quiet Nic. I was impressed and thought "wow! Daddy is so capable. And Little Nic is so co-operative" (He cried the last time my MIL brought him to the barber) But I was wrong. Once I took over to cary and hug him for being good, he cried so pitifully! When I asked him what happen, he just kept crying and pointing to daddy and said in between his cry "naughty!... daddy!...." His this unexpected reply makes us laughed out loud! But of course, inside, mommy felt the heart pain to see him cried till this state!

According to daddy, Little Nic was fine in the beginning until they started to use the electric blade to cut his hair. Think he got frighten by the sound and started to struggle and cry. Daddy couldn't pacify him and he kept on crying until he vomited. The guy asked daddy if he still wants to continue. Since it's already midway through, daddy gave the guy the go ahead signal (that's the diff between man and woman...mommy would have called for a paused or even forget about the whole thing.). And so poor little baby cried throughout the entire haircut and all the way home.!

Daddy said Little Nic got tired of crying while on the way back and therefore was quiet when he first stepped into the house. My maid jokingly commented that it's more likely that Little Nic's complaint had fallen into deaf ears (daddy) and therefore give up crying till he sees us! My maid very imaginative and funny, right?!

Poor Nic..I always wonder, between the barber and the father, who has the greater fear of touching a toddler's hair...Anyway, daddy completed his assignment, at least deserve a pat, right ? =)
