Just had a thought. When my baby sister was born, my dad had a beard and a moustache. (She called it his "mushbeard"). When she was about two, he shaved it all off. I had never seen my dad without his beard before either, but I didn't freak out (being older). My sister, however, hid under the sink and cried for half a day "bring back my daddy." He just crouched there for hours, trying to convince her "I am your daddy," and telling her she needed to come out. And she would say "then where's your mushbeard?"
How much worse is this point of confusion going to be for little Korafay?
