I'm sorry you are still getting comments like that!
On the pee front... Trevor does that too if I don't make sure his penis is pointing down before I put his diaper on !!
ishereal - yet another gem from yr grandma, i cant believe it! is she going for some type of record?
i got some 'strong advice' about circing from my mom - she is very opinionated and although we have a great relationship, we live on opposite coasts and i had fallen out of the habit of dealing with her particular brand of bullying. she was saying the stuff about him looking like his dad, etc. she's doing a psych degree right now so of course it was a serious psychological disadvantage not to look like your father, right? she has a friend whose youngest boy was circed in late childhood b/c of recurring yeast infections, which i think is the root of her bias. one thing that stuck out to me was about how they have to clean it and 'do you really want a little boy to have to pay that much attention to his penis?' i understand where she was coming from in a way... but i thought about it for point five seconds, and decided the world might be a little different if more men didn't grow up with socially and medically encouraged thoughtlessness about their genetalia.
but i digress. my point was, she had this one=sided discussion with me when i was like 3 days postpartum and, call it horomones, but i totally got verklempt. became doubtful, even. it totally passed, but it was a pretty bad moment.
subsequently, she just confirmed that my decision hadn't changed and that our peds agreed with us (they were super nonchalant) and she isn't trying to change our minds or anything. so that's cool.
in othernews, he peed up over his hip today when the little girl next door was holding him. i felt so bad! but she was a trooper. she went inside and got paper towels to put on her lap and wanted to hold him again.
ok sorry. i have now utterly hijacked yr thread.
@ limette - i've heard the 50% stat as well.
@ junipersmom's grandfather's little joke... i plan to totally use that!
I told him "so is being fat and in debt apparently but I'm not gonna head to McDonalds and run up my credit card bill!"
