Its a boy!

Still not use to saying that, but since it really is a boy I am now faced with the big "C" word, circumcision.  I did not know anything about until I started researching it.  My friend said I needed to watch a video of it being done, I did and it is the worst thing I have ever watched, I asked my husband to watch it and he only made it through 2 minutes and could not watch it anymore.  I know everyone has strong opinions about this subject and I think it is all right to disagree, I was just wondering why you felt one way or another, what are your opinions?

Having raised two boys, from a hygiene standpoint, I felt it was the right thing to do. I know people who have NOT had their son's circumcized and it has presented problems with infections. Its a personal thing, you need to do what you feel is right, but consider all the pros and cons.

I had a friend that made a good point who has 2 boys and said, "Do you know how hard it is just to get them to shower, let alone clean themselves!" I thought that was a great point. I think we have made our decision, i am just afraid of telling my mom, I do not think she realizes it is a personal decision between me and Brad :)She has all ready brought the topic up twice since Friday! 6 more months to avoid the topic!

The other point I would make is that someday, in a locker room at school for gym, he is going to look different than 90% of his peers. While it is a personal decision between you and Brad, remember the child too, when you finally decide. Love you.
