Baby no more : ((

Thanks to everyone for your support and care. Toby is good and we have an appointment on 11th October to see a specialist. There have been no temps and no signs of any seizures since, so I'm pretty confident it was just "just" a febrile convulsion. I have been watching him like a hawk!

Mullet-free house





For non-Australians: The mullet is a hairstyle that is short at the front and sides, and long in the back.[1] Often ridiculed as a lowbrow and unappealing hairstyle, the mullet began to appear in popular media in the 1960s and 1970s but did not become generally well-known until the early 1980s. It continued to be popular until the mid-1990s.


Here is a mullet from wikipedia - Year Five kid, poor thing, what a rotten mother to not only let the hair grow as such, much less let him out of the house for a school portrait! Sheesh, the things some parents do to their kids!!!




Toby had his first haircut 



He is a baby no longer. I hate it. He looks like a little boy. Before you know it he'll be at school and then interested in girls, then challenging our anti-mullet house rule. I kept his curls and one curl is in my locket.


I wasn't going to upload this one, but after reading the Mikes' blog about the piggy bank, I decided to take the focus off sweet Eva and humiliate myself.


Note to self: don't give Toby a home haircut



Hey, at least I didn't use a bowl.

Whoops! Looks like you got a little carried away with them clippers. In the States, we say that mullets are business upfront but a party in the back. Ha, ha!

In Hawaii, one of the more popular cuts put upon young children by father's too cheap to than them out for a real haircut, is called "ching ching Bowla cut." The last word in the slang is the key to understanding what this phrase refers to.

Per proper protocols for any 12-step program:

"Hello, my name is Michael, and my father gave me and my two brothers ching ching bowl cuts."

Despite her threat, mother did not divorce him that day.

Hmm... I always thought the Mullet was a Southern American invention. I'll be happy to let you claim credit, tho'. :-)
