About a month ago, Randy and I were able to squeeze in some personal time into our über busy summer. We also brought Raviv with us, because his hair has grown long again.
This time, however, he immediately complained when he was put on the chair, unlike the first time he had his hair cut. I guess it was because the babies’ barber shop was busy that time. The barber suggested that Randy just carry Raviv while he chops off his hair.
When the barber asked us how we want Raviv’s hair to be cut, we were stupefied. We knew we liked his earlier haircut, but because it was summer (and Raviv’s head easily sweats, as in! Kahit naka-aircon!), Yaya Isay suggested “Skinhead!” I hesitated for a bit but his Tatay agreed. Yaya Isay even furthered, “Gusto ni Ma’am Emma (my Mom) ‘yan Ma’am, malinis daw tingnan.” So I agreed. And so while Randy was carrying Raviv, the barber started shaving off Raviv’s hair.
Presenting, Raviv “Baby Ama” Ladaga (if you don’t know who Baby Ama is, it is Robin Padilla’s jail inmate character in one of his earlier and most popular movies. He had his head shaved there too, and looked like a total sanggano):
Hay, I honestly dislike it! In my opinion, Raviv looks like a shaolin! Worse, he sometimes looks like a batang kantong yagit to me, especially because his skin was burned (brought about by his almost daily backyard swimming in April).
Others like his new look though, especially his Ninong Irvin. Whenever he enters our living room, his Ninong Irvin would start chanting: “Ba-by Ama! Baby Ama!” They said he looked tough–that no playmate of his would lift a finger to hurt him. Almost like he’ll most likely be the play yard bully. Nooooooooooo! Bring me back my sweet, innocent-looking boy!
Anyway, I’m consoled with the fact that his hair will grow back long before I know it (but it’s been a month, and he still looks like a shaolin). Sigh.
Tell me what you think!
