How do your uncircumcised and circumcised sons relate to each other and dad? - Page 2

They did! They've said "wow, it must have hurt!" and "whoa, that's crazy!" My daughter also said she would never do that to her babies. :D

Thanks everyone for all the encouraging stories of your families and advise.  I gave birth to a beautiful 9#3oz baby girl on Sunday night.

They really don't compare peni. :wink They know that boys have penises, and that's about it. Our circed ds is 6, and it has been explained to him what happened, but he was pretty mum about it. I imagine we might have questions in a few years maybe, but I highly doubt they are going to be inspecting each others' penises.

It was funny to me the other day my 10 year old circ'd DS said something to me about "when the baby's winky finishes developing ..." I'm like, it is finished son.. That was the 1st time he really noticed it was different looking than his! I just found it amusing that to him it looked like it still had to change somehow

DH is circ'd , two ds's are not (14 and 18)  I know you were asking about a circ'd and intact son so I will share the differences between my two intact sons first.  DS18 has a short, just to the tip foreskin.  DS14 has a very long overhang of foreskin, hangs over as much as a half inch.  Now I haven't seen either of them naked since they were about five so things could have changed and I'm certain they haven't seen each other naked since they were taking baths together.  They are both intact and they did notice the difference between their foreskins.  Noticing does not necessarily mean trauma to either party.  They noticed-"Wow, his is so long"  "Look, his is shorter than mine"  It never went beyond that.  

 

With their circ'd dad they never commented on circ status-only hair and overall size.  

 

I did explain to older ds that dad was circ'd, he was not because back then, parents didn't know any better, but now we know it isn't necessary.  But I was the one who brought it up, he never brought it up after I told him that.  

 

Both boys heavily into sports and have been in plenty of locker rooms.  No problems.

 

To be honest, there really is nothing to handle.  Answer any questions that may come up, answer honestly, and simply.  It will really be no big deal.
