Tying Up Loose Ends

Last summer when we used the Landeez Chair with Ben at the beach, we needed to purchase a small belt to keep him in place. We bought it at a small hardware store for $3 - fastener and all.

A few weeks ago when I took Ben for a haircut, I remembered the belt was still in the trunk. If you have seen the photos of Ben getting a haircut, you know he can hang upside down, turning a regular visit to Supercuts into an Olympic event for me. Ben would leave with a new haircut and I'd have sore muscles and a bad back, and possibly a few scissor stabbings.

This time, we used the belt around his waist and it was just enough restraint to keep Ben in line. He realized about 1/3 of the way into it that he was not going to get out of the situation so he sat back and watched Bob the Builder on the small DVD I brought.

Not that I am counting, but one point for me.


  1. Try giving him sips of his favorite milkshake between snips. It does work for some. Joan

  2. I'm really not anonymous, just don't know any other way to get it to post.

  3. Hi Joan - Smoothie is a great idea because Ben&Jerry's is next door and I could get it there! Thanks for the tip. And I knew who you were :)
