My 3 year old was born with a dime sized birth mark on her cheek. The Dr.'s have classified it as a mole, and a safe one b/c it grows hair. I think she's a beautiful child with it. What bothers me is that kids already point it out and notice. As she gets older, it's going to get worse. Let's face it, kids are mean. I mean, it's a big hairy mole, it will be like a target sign for mean kids. We have found a surgeon to remove it, but my husband is not totally on board. i would never have it taken off unless both of us are in agreement. He doesn't understand what it's like to be a girl, trying to fit in, etc. He thinks it's "cute". It is right now, she's 3. When she's 12, SHE isn't going to think it's "cute". Is it wrong to have this removed?

No princessbeth, it won't get bigger thank God. I might even consider leaving it if it didn't grow black hair. I just don't see how there is any way to spare he self esteem with this as she grows. I just can't get my husband to understand that. Thanks for your input.
