My mom (who did choose to or allowed my brothers to be circumcised) asked if were planning to circumcise DS. I had been expecting this question and wasn't sure how I would respond... but in the moment, it just seemed like SUCH a crazy idea that I'm sure I looked horrified and said, "He is SO tiny- I cannot IMAGINE handing him to someone as saying, 'Here, cut off a part of his penis! That's awful.'" That was the first and only time she's asked. I'm still wondering when I'll have that conversation with MIL; it's possible she and my mom have already discussed it. I would LOVE to have heard that conversation...
I'm not sure when/if I'll even have a conversation about proper intact care. We live far away, so it may not even need to be discussed.
