So DH is going to be a first time father. And we both have an anxiety disorder so we have found that for big (or potentially disagreeable) events, if we have discussions in advance and come up a plan together, things go so much more smoothly. For this event, it is paramount we have these talks.
So we had the circumcision talk just in case. It was very easy, surprisingly and straight away came to an agreement. "I'm not circumcised, why should my son be?" and I totally agree.
We also had the catholic baptism talk. I was raised catholic. My daughter was baptized. Although I am not involved in catholic church any more, for some reason I still feel this is important. It's like I am having flashbacks or something. Anyway, DH said that was fine with him too. My family is still catholic and many of my friends are non-denominational christian.
But the question now becomes...what else are we going to have to discuss? It seems like there are a ton of things, but I just can't remember everything from 7 years ago! I know it seems like I am anticipating this too far in advance, but it sure has made our relationship so much better. I really need to avoid arguments with him at all costs. It's too stressful for me.
