We don’t chop off ears to prevent ear infections. We don’t remove baby toenails to prevent fungal infections. We don’t cut off body parts anymore when a wound becomes infected. In the very unlikely event your son does develop an infection, we have antibiotics.
This is exactly how I felt. I didn’t want T to go through that pain. To put a newborn through something like that, it makes me cry to even think about it. They don’t have a say for themselves. They can’t do anything but scream. What helped me make my decision was watching the beginning of a circumcision procedure video. I didn’t even get far into the video and had to shut it off. But I don’t say things to other moms who has had their son circumcised. Whatever your reason is, that’s yours. I have my beliefs and you have yours. We deal with enough as is as mothers, we don’t need to put down other moms just because of what they chose to do. If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it at all. Simple.
I don’t think people will notice when I move… No one calls me. No one texts me. I text them or call them to see if they want to hang with T and I, and we get ignored or ditched. It’s so easy to say “omg, i miss you and want to see T.” but when it comes down to it, they’d rather be off doing something else than hanging out with me. It sucks not having any friends that I can talk to or hang out with.
Even my “best friends”. I think my boyfriend is getting tired of all of my girl talk… Hahaha.
