I was prepping the Genius today for her upcoming surgery this week. I wanted her to know it was coming but not too far in advance. The doctor had done a real good job of explaining it to her, but we went over it again. I asked how she felt and she said, "I think I am a little bit excited and a little bit scared. I am scared because my nose might turn purple and excited because soon my bump (her word for the scar) will be gone and no one will ever ask me about it again." I reminded her that her nose turning purple meant it was healing and that it will take several surgeries and several follow up appointments. She was taking it in stride when the Hippie blurts out, "Well, I am MAD! Sissy will have a pretty purple nose and mine will be plain blonde." Kids. Ya gotta love 'em!
