“As deaf parents, my oh my!!!! We tried so hard not to bust out laughing - Luke really wanted him to pay attention so he could show how to sign ‘you’re welcome.’ It was just so pure and he only meant well. It will not be long until he realises that not everyone is deaf or knows sign language. My heart! My baby! The barber does not know sign language but my goodness! So easy to communicate since the Spanish community typically uses body gestures anyway! It all went well and he’s just so handsome! The barbershop is such a special place! His great Abuelo went to have his haircut there. His Abuelo has his haircut there all the time, his dad grew up going to that barbershop and now Luke got to have his first haircut there!” says a part of the detailed caption posted along with the video.
