A friend had her baby last week and it was a boy. They had him circed even though they both said it was going to be awful and didn't want to be in the room. The husband went so far as to say he didn't even want to be in the hospital when it was done. I dropped a few things off there today and the mom was telling me how awful it was watching them strap the baby down, etc and how he's been screaming all day. The poor kid had his eyes really wide and looked shell shocked. I almost started to cry. Then the mom proceeds to tell me "If you have a boy that's definitely the worst part." Why on earth would she tell me how awful it was and then assume I'd have it done? I was floored. Usually when people go through something awful that affects them like this obviously did her they warn people to not do it. I just don't get the reasoning behind this, but maybe I'm missing something...
