My sister & BIL had their first child last week. They had a boy & chose to keep him intact. They attended a discharge class before leaving the hospital along with all the other new parents leaving that day. The nurse teaching the class asked for everyone that had boys to raise their hand. She said several hands went up. The nurse then asked how many circumcised & all hands went down! Guess she didn't have to go over circumcision care. This just really made me smile:)

That's awesome, but I guess that seems like it could be a little awkward for parents and even still makes it seem like it is 'okay'.  I mean, you don't just cursorily have a show of hands for something unless it's pretty non-controversial.


So glad for the 'all hands down'!!

Was this in TN? If not, what state? That's awesome news. Congratulations on your new nephew!
