Wombat had his first hair cut today. He cried like it was the end of the world! The barber had trouble cutting straight even when he settled (if you could call it that) as he was sobbing so hard, poor little lad. He was sitting on my lap and from the time the barber put the cloak on us to the time we left, he acted like he was about to get his head cut off! What was this stranger doing in his personal space and ACTUALLY TOUCHING HIM? Outrageous! Of course, the teething didn't help, and by the time it was our turn it was getting close to nap time (he didn't nap at all this afternoon as a result)... but at least he got the big FIRST out of the way, and he was much happier on the way home, not to have hair tickling his eyes and ears anymore...
here's a before pic:
and here are some after pics in the car on the way home, once the tears had subsided (with duckling's help...)
In other exciting news, the tomato plant that his little cousin planted for our Christmas present produced its harvest today - three lovely golden little tomatos! We had them for dinner and they were delicious and sweet!
