I am very happy this morning. I did something which I wanted to do for a long time. I had my fringe cut and now I have a baby doll look! I dunno how my husband is going to react when he sees me as I never have such a hairstyle before. And myself, also not used to it yet. I also cannot imagine the shocking look of my clients' face.

Anyway I brought along my demented granny to my hairstylist for her haircut too. She had made everyone in the salon laughed like never before cos granny is so cute! As she is demented, she said many weird, funny stuffs and questioned everyone in the salon like she is the matron there. My granny used to be a housekeeper for a British family for many years before WWII til after. So she lived in a mind of the past most of the time. Dementia people have short term memories as their brain cells are not developing and as a matter of fact, they are dying. But if they are on medications, it can slow down dementing process. Well, granny is a petite old lady and she still has her sense of humour and very good PR skills. Although she kept repeating the same old thing, she can also make nice remarks to people and make them happy.

Oh granny! I wish you are not demented so that we can really spend good times shopping and going out. I really miss our good old times. Now all we can do is spend time at home, watch TV, or go for walk near the park. To think about it, better than nothing we can do at all. So granny, lets get funky and rock!(at home )

It is sweet of you to love your mum that way. Its now or never. Then no more... Something you would not regret and something we can show about how to love the elderly who are always being casted out.

i can understand how the feeling like, my mum was demented too, when she just got it, she keep asking me how old is my daughter and what grade she was in, after about five min she ask again, until i got annoy and stop answering her, but she still asking about it. sometime i feel that when we were young, our parent were so patient and want us to keep repeating what we have said to then on our first speech, they got excited, just like my daughter, on her first time calling me daddy when i came home, feeling tire while opening the front door, she suddenly from the dining table, shouted DADDY.....!!!that where my heart melted into the air and was full of joy and happiness that straight can be seem on my face....HAHAHAHA!!!
Till todate, i always very biase and still prefer to have a daughter then son, although i only have 1 daughter, but i don mine to have another kid, but still i prefer a daughter.

Good work Serene, take goodcare of your parent and grandparent, keep them company when ever you have time, we never know when we will miss them, but it really painful when someone close to you is no longer with you, just like me

I can empathize with you. All of us should treasure moments with our loved ones.

Its nice to hear from someone sharing the same thought. I think its really heartwarming. Im always ready to serve the old and needy within my means. Well my profession also involves such commitment to them. Really happy. I would never forget how these old people smile or react whenever we reach out our hands and hearts to them.

I'm glad you can get along with your granny... it's obvious that you love her, even though she is suffering from dementia. Well... lots of young people nowadays have no patience for elderly. My heart hurts everytime I visited the old aged home for volunteer work.... I hate seeing the sorrowful faces and the lonely eyes of those old citizens there.

So, I'm happy for you. You did good! That's why you deserved a baby doll look.

Make it your challenge.... turn me ON!!
