When my sister came up with the idea to get all 3 of both our sons circumsised this year, I thought I should start telling Imtiyaz about it, eventhough I am not certain if it is the right time to do it this year. 🙂
I guess I scared him out of his wits by saying all boys need to have their penis cut! Hahaha. Tried to explain using the simplest term and it’s not easy, you know!
I did say if he had his ‘penis cut’, he’ll be able to follow both his Babah and me go solat in Makkah. As if he’d understand! 😛
He was quiet for a while, deep in thought. Then he asked,
Mama, cut with what?
Not scissors, maybe just a shot of laser lights… but only a little bit. But you can’t do it yourself ok, only doctors can do it!
I had this fear he might attempt ‘cutting’ it himself! Hehehe.
That was a few days ago.
This morning, in the car, he woke up and was quiet for a while. No mention of penis, or scissors whatsoever from either side. But suddenly, he said,
Mama, I don’t wanna cut my penis.
Uh-ohhh… a nightmare, perhaps? Now I really wished I’ve had it done when he was born… that would be so much easier!
