Yes, I know its Sunday and I promised the results of my survey, which I’m not even going to bother to link to because I’ve hyped it mercilessly already and you’ve already had your chance to enter.
But first, I just had to write about this god-awful book I found. I’m sorry, there is just no other way to describe it. The book is called, My Beautiful Mommy and it is a picture book that explains to little kids about their mothers having plastic surgery.
The book is by Dr. Michael Salzhauer, who is, of course, a plastic surgeon. He says he was moved to write the book after many of his patients had "mommy makeovers" (could the term be any more patronizing?) and didn’t know what to tell their children.
"It sounds like a joke, but there really is a need to address this issue," Salzhauer told Reuters.
Doesn’t sound like a joke to me, it sounds like a nightmare. Here’s the link: Mom’s Having Tummy Tuck? What to Tell the Kids.
Read it and weep. Or decide to go live in a cave somewhere. I might come join you.
