The Boy Child update

You all may recall that the Boy Child recently cut his face, next to his left eye, and required the services of a plastic surgeon. The doctor put a bandage on the boy's face and told us that he should be as immobile as possible over a five day span which fell over the New Year holiday. He was kept as immobile as one can keep a not quite four year old active boy. He was pinned to the couch by a steady diet of television, something he rarely gets to watch.

The Viking Bride had him back at the plastic surgeon yesterday and the bandage was removed. The plastic surgeon's reaction: "Damn, I do good work". We felt that was positive. It appears that the cut has healed beautifully and may not even leave a scar. That would be nice. The Boy Child looks like an angel and I was not really ready to see his perfect little visage marked, yet. Although, maybe, a scar would make him less pretty. Either way, it is still a big relief.

On the other hand, if the scar remains, tell him it looks like a lightning bolt. At some point, he'll think it totally cool. (Yes, I've finally been dragooned into reading Harry Potter.)

Scars build character.

At least that's what my parents told me.
Then again they're trying to explain the scar I have on my jaw from where I dove off the changing table as a toddler.

Of course it was kind of hard to damage my good looks when they never arrived in the first place.

Having grown up in coastal North Carolina I used to tell my friends I was attacked by Pirates and they left the scar. I however don't think it worked after about the second grade.

Heres to hoping the boy child makes a speedy and scar free recovery.

Glad to hear it is healing better than expected. I guess TV has its uses after all :-)

I was bothered by the very faint scar that my son has next to his eye (due to falling against the coffee table over a year ago) until he chipped one of his baby teeth when he slipped in the bathroom last month. I don't notice the scar anymore, as I'm too busy trying to figure out how I'm going to graphically alter every picture taken between now and when that tooth (right in front, of course!) falls out in a few years. Sigh...

I bought these in my partner since i squashed his phony Oakleys. They're quality, so it looks like I won't be filled these that easy! He prefers them, they generally complement appropriately!
