Mo's Bris

Monday, July 30, 2012

Today is Mo's bris.  A much anticipated event.  A day to introduce him to our friends and family.  A day when he is announced as a Jewish little boy into our community.  We wanted to keep this a small affair because we are overwhelmed and because the day is so very special.  It is turning out to be a bigger affair than we had imagined originally but it will be ok.  I wanted to be able to invite many of the people who really stuck by us this year.  We will be happy to feel all of the support and I am so looking forward to seeing everyone. On the other hand, even in the best of circumstances, a bris is hard on baby and parents.  After all - it is a circumcision.  No momma wants to see their baby go through something like that.  Also, I am worried about the expectations about where people think we are emotionally - my feelings are so complex about our lives in general.  Plus, my first priority is to Mo - so I will probably be busy nursing in the baby's room and changing diapers.  I may not even  get to spend time with guests. And, as much as I want everyone to meet Mo and coo all over him, I want to keep him close to me and away from germs or dangers.  I know it will be an evening that we will remember forever and as much as I am looking forward to seeing friends who support us, I am also looking forward to Tuesday - lying around, cuddling with my baby, in my cozy and quiet house.

I hope it went ok for you (and Mo) Abby and that it wasn't too overwhelming for you all. Thinking of you x.

I hope how ever it goes it will be the way you want it to be! Congrats to Mo and all of your family. I can just imagine Maxie by Baby Mo's side through it all. Best wishes as always!
