The idea of a normal, healthy newborn IS theoretical to him at the moment, as is the idea of circumcising it. That's all I meant. It was no judgment of him or reflection of the child's integrity.

By the same token, I don't agree that they necessarily need to come to an agreement right this instant. The only course of action that isn't reversible is actually circumcising the baby, and as you said, the baby won't even be here for several more weeks. Hence, there's no need to force the issue today.

My husband just called a few minutes ago, and said, "so, I've been thinking about it all day. If its something you really don't went done, you have my support. I don't want to fight about this anymore."
That is wonderful!
