The op just wanted to share her story. She asked for it to not be a debate and for people to share similar stories. If you don't have a similar story to share you shouldn't be posting here at all....just my two cents.

To the OP-

You said you were concerned about what you will say to each boy about why their penis' look different and I just had to chime in.

DH has 5 brothers. 3 are circumcised and 2 are not. He has no idea who is and who isn't. I don't know if it's because hes not observant or it didnt matter to him much as a child. But i do know he's never cared.

You have to forgive yourself for the choice you made to have DS1 circumcised. You really do. You made the best decision with the information you had at that moment! Hind sight is always different.

I glad to hear the difference didn't matter. That's very reassuring.

I am working on forgiving myself. It will take time.

Its cool no hard feelings from me DS is seriously the only adult interaction I get so I try not to be nasty or hold any grudges we are all parents who love their kids regardless of any personal decisions we make for the. We all want what is best.

Re: Circumcision has profoundly affected every member of my family...

If anyone feels unsure of sharing their story here, please feel free to send me a PM. I would love to chat with you. Even thought this thread got away from me and got slightly off track, I am still finding it very helpful. Sharing my story is very healing for me and I really do appreciate the input. It's nice to see it's turning back around and becoming polite, again.

You are right, I have no idea what you both said in your PMs... none. I'm only going off of what she said which was that you invited her back after she "bowed out".

this was supposed to be a cathartic and healing thread for the OP... Not a debate.

The OP said that she welcomes polite respectful questions, too. (No debate, though) And she wants similar stories to be shared.
