Major Regret

It is difficult for me to even write about this because it means admitting to doing something I find morally reprehensible: circumcision.  My husband and I disagreed on this subject and he does not have this level of regret.  He is still living in "his" reality which was that almost all boys were circumcised in the U.S. in the 1970s.  Of course, I don't want my son to be the one with the "weird dick" in the locker room as a teen, especially when he has a genetic predisposition toward a slight build and a late-onset puberty.  The thing is, now that the damage is done, I have seen a lot of moms changing their sons' diapers and at least 50% of those boys are intact.

I can only hope he doesn't hate us for doing this to him.
