Hi mike - I just stumbled across this page. I have a venous malformation on my lip. It's very noticeable. Growing up, I had countless number of doctors and dentists ask me what it was and I never knew, so I just said it was a birthmark. It is hard growing up with something so noticeable on your face. I agree the best approach is to just explain its a birthmark. If she is bothered by it later in life, you may want to look into whether it can be treated. Mine didn't start bothering me until recently. Just this week I began treatment for it. Fingers crossed it works.
