Yup my conversation about circ'ing with my Dh was pretty darn simple too. I told him it was NOT happening, period. Told him why (unneccisary, painful, reduced sensitivity, ect) and then asked him what he thought. He said that he agreed with me and it wouldn't be done.
I think I'm pretty lucky to have my Dh. We were both raised very mainstream, and after I found Mothering it was one thing after another I brought up to him. No spanking. Ok with him once we discussed gentle disipline. No CIO. Ok with him. Breastfeeding as long as me and kiddos want. Sure, no problem from him. EC? Sure, that totally make sence to him!
(and I thought he would think I was a fruit loop for that one!)
Homebirth... needed to show him why that was a good choice. But then he's all for it. No/selective vaccines, again had to show him why that was a good choice, but he's all for it now. Slinging? He doesn't think I'll do it as much as I think I will, but he's just fine with it...
And he always tells me I'm gonna be a great mama.
Well he's gonna be a great dad for keeping an open mind and being willing to do whats best for our kiddo.
Ok ok, I'll stop gushing about him already.
