"Bald people are Special, too."

We're peacefully driving home from Sean-Peter's OT appointment this morning when Olivia abruptly asks me to turn the music down.

"I need to tell you something, Mommy!" she calls from the back of the van.

"What is it, babe?" I look at her in the rearview mirror.

"People are different from each other, and that's what makes everyone special."

"Um, you're right, Olivia." I wait to see if there's more she wants to offer to this epiphany.

After a short moment, I'm not disappointed.

"My Uncle Rich is bald. That's what makes him special."
Aw, Rich... You know that's not the only thing special about you, don't you? We've got nothing but love for you out here, really...

I don't know if it's the bald head, but I know all Rich's nieces and nephews think he's special. As do we all!

Wow! That.is.something...special! Now show us Olivia's funny face she made in return. I know she made a noble attempt but, seriously, can you beat that?

I was thinking Olivia was really insightful!
And now Uncle Rich is famous with his bald head on the Internet! ;)
