He was laying there so nice and I was impressed that he wasn't crying as many newborns do when they are uncovered and exposed. Our granddaughter Caitlyn was hovering over the baby and taking in all the conversation when April smoothly transitioned into a comment that he didn't even cry when he got circumcised! I went on to say how I could hear one of my sons cry all the way down the hallway when his was done, and April went on to say that she was glad she didn't have to hear that.
Caitlyn being confident about our conversation easily asked, "Did I cry?" We smiled, and said, "Oh honey, you didn't have one because you aren't a boy." She kinda stared at us, so I went on to gently explain what a circumcism is using terms like foreskin, and removing, etc... trying not to traumatizing her and ending it by saying that the baby is fine.
There was this moment of silence as she stood there looking at me with this blank expression, when she calmly said,
"Grandma...I was just asking if I cried when you changed MY diaper?"
Well of course we had to laugh, as I commented to April, "Well, I guess I gave out more information then I needed to!"
Isn't that just the way things just go sometimes:)
