He's my super cute 4 year old nephew. He's got a lot of spunk and says some of the funniest things. Not to mention, there is nothing quite like watching someone discover the world
I said (like I always do), "Thanks David! It is getting better."
That's when he got this serious look on his face and asked, "How come you have that scar?"
Crap... How do I explain surgery to a little kid without giving him nightmares?
I said, "I had to have a gland taken out of my neck because it was making me sick. So a very special doctor (didn't want him to think his regular doctor was going to cut open his neck or something) had to very carefully cut my neck to get it out. So it wouldn't make me sick anymore."
He just kind of looked at me. Dang it... I freaked him out.
So I kept going, "This doctor had to go to school for super super SUPER long to learn how to do that."
David replied with, "Was the doctor old?"
"Yeah," I said. "Old like your dad." :)
David laughed and we went to get dinner. Hopefully I didn't give him nightmares or terrify him of the doctor.
