Unfortunately, I did not know better and we circumsized DS as birth. I am pregnant with another boy and when I mentioned to DH that we won't be circing this one, he said he wished we hadn't done it with DS but he thinks it is important for the brothers to be alike.
To be clear, this is not a battle I will lose. But, I need some advice from those of you who have circed one child and not another on how you explained this to them once they were old enough to ask. DH is certain to bring this up as a concern and I want to have a good answer for him. I would much rather persuade him than just put my foot down so I need some help answering his questions.
So, how did you explain it to your kids? Did you say you made a mistake the first time? I don't want DS to feel like his penis is somehow wrong or inferior because we did circ him so I need some help in explaining the decision.
