The other day I was getting my daily dose of Studio 5 when they had a panel of three ladies talking about blogs and journals and things like that. They talked about how most people don't write about things that could hurt or offend anyone when they are reading "your" thoughts. I have pondered alot on this question the last few days. Why am I holding back from writing things on my blog that might hurt someone. They are my thoughts, and feelings. If I kept a faithful journal I would write these "personal" thoughts in them. So why am I holding out and not letting my real feelings out on my blog. I know that people read it, and for that I am grateful for. But this might as well be my journal, in fact one day I will turn my blog into a book and it will be a keepsake for my kids, grandkids, and so forth. So here's to not holding back anymore. If I offend you or say something that may be hurtful it's not intentional (sp?). It's how I am feeling, and sometimes it is just easier to write it than say it. So...with that being said... I need some advice. Since I know and have heard ALOT of baby advice in the last few months from EVERYONE!!!!!!
I really need your opinion. I need your advice, I need your help, I need someone to help me out here...
Today while taking a baby class (which by the way there was about twelve couples there, out of the twelve couples there were only three that were having girls, all the rest of us are having boys)... so undoubtedly the topic of circumsion came up. According to this website...http://www.circumcision.org/ they have said
"Based on a review of medical and psychological literature and our own research and experience, we conclude that male circumcision causes serious, generally unrecognized harm and is not advisable."
I figured I would just get Little Scout circumsied. No questions asked that is just what I would do. Well I feel now that I might need to be a little bit more informed about this procedure. Anyone out there got any advice? I am willing to hear both sides of the story here and will let the information I receive from you go into my head and actually stay there unlike some of the "unwanted advice" I have been receieving ever since we announced we were pregnant.
Your thoughts, advice and own experiences will help me tremendously in determining what situation is best for our baby.
