Planning a little personal re-engineering? Here's a special way to break it to the kids: A new book that explains Mommy's nifty new nose and super-tight tummy to the tots. It's written by a plastic surgeon, who says a lot of moms tell him they don't know how to explain their bruises, wraps, and resulting perfection to their kids.
"Why are you going to look different?" asks the daughter of her mother in the car ride back from the doctor's office.
"Not just different, my dear — prettier!" exclaims the mother.
OK. On the one hand, if plastic surgery is your thing - and fine by me if it is - then why not have a good book to help the kids understand?
On the other hand....eeeuuuuchhh!
