Sadly, I must admit that my sons are circ'd...and we are not done having kids. I chose to circ them because I really didn't know as much as I do now (parenting is an evolution)...I was wondering if anyone here has BOTH intact and circ'd sons? Is it awkward at all or are they ok with it? Please don't flame me...I really just want input <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I know someone IRL who has 4 circ'd sons and one (two soon if her surprise is a boy) intact son. None of her children have even noticed that he's different.<br><br>
They regret circing their first four boys... and they knew better for the three after the first one, but were worried about them "matching" because they were so close in age. She told me that that was not a good reason and she'll always regret that.<br><br>
So, for them, it's not awkward at all. She just tells them that she made a bad decision and that it was more accepted back when she chose it for them, but that she wasn't going to choose it for their little brother because she knew better then and it wasn't as accepted. She dealt with her feelings about it possibly being awkward and found that it really wasn't once she made the decision to leave her son intact.<br><br>
love and peace. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

There are more than a few mom's here that have circed and intact sons. I welcome you here and am so glad that u have educated yourself on this issue and will not be putting any more babies thru this horrific procedure. I am sure some mom will come along and tell u there stories.<br><br>
When you know better you do better is the main motto here.

If little bean is a boy, then we will have two circ'd boys and one intact boy. We know nothing then - not even to research it, but have since realized it was something that we will never do again.

Hi, I also started a thread for this awhile ago. Ds #1 is circ'd and #2 is intact. Obviously all future sons will be left intact as well. The birth of ds#2 really helped bring some healing to my incredible guilt, but I will always regret what we did to ds #1. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
