Oh! I got it!
I read that you hold his penis up to urinate in the toilet and couldn't imagine what was going on over there, LOL!
He's standing up!
(I guess a lot of children learn that way?)
Anyhow--just have him sit!
And, of course, children only spend a part of their day in care, but the whole of their lives circumcised.
But I do get the OP's point about care--in some circles, it's just assumed that after your baby is 6 weeks old, you're going to WANT to get back to 'what's important.'
(No kidding, I've heard that!)
Cut the ties--it isn't just the language that bothers me--it's the stereotypes of certain behaviors. He doesn't act like he's African-American? He acts like who he is!
When she calls, just say, politely, "No Thanks, I am extremely uncomfortable with the way you think and talk about race, my child, and my husband."

Ha! Don't count on it!
We lived < 1 hr. from my ILs when we were first married, and we knew that we wanted to be closer to my family--back in the house I'd bought when I was a 'yuppie'--before having children.
Now we are--about an hour from my folks, 3-4 hours from his, and very...
My father was raised in a secular-Methodist family, my mother was raised in a devout Catholic family--more Irish than Roman if you know what I mean!
Mom left Catholicism when she left home for college and when she and my father married after 8 years of dating (they started when she was in high school) my grandfather refused to attend the wedding and severed ties for about 4 years because she and my father had chosen to marry in a very liberal Presbyterian church. ...
I just saw it on a thread (am I allowed to say which?) called 'Complications of Circumcision.'
I know there's another page that shows what complications look like in the adult male--I'll never forget one image where the skin of the glans and about half way up the penis looked more like the skin on your knee than that of a penis!
Yep I'd use them.
Exclusively for any and all occasions pertaining to the individual who sent them--birthday, anniversary, thank-you, halloween, thanksgiving, new years, flag day. . .
How many did you say there were? LOL!
And I'd sign my name Teresa Smith' on all of them for consistency's sake.
Hi, Cousin Jane,
Just wanted to wish you a very happy Presidents Day.
Hope you and all your family are healthy and well.
The Smith' Family
