Mazal Tov and Poor Josh

Yesterday, we joined my bro- and sis-in-law, Ari and Rivky, in celebrating their first-born's bris. His hebrew name is Yeshaya (pretty, no?) and they're calling him Josh. Mordechai's stuffed bird and Sari's doll have already been named Josh in his honor.

Rather unfortunately, in my opinion, Mordechai had a full, front-seat view of the proceedings. Among his questions that day was, "Do they do that to girls, too?" When I answered that they don't, he was clearly relieved and said, "Good, 'cuz I wouldn't want them to do that to Ada."

Update: They've decided to call him Shaya, after all.

wow, what a selfless big bro. He didn't say was that done to me? or how come I had to do it and not my sisters? He was just concerned and then relieved that his little sister did not have to go through the pain that he witnessed. Tzadik!

ps- does Ada maybe want a playdate one of these days?

I went to a briss this year, and four year old Gabi was so upset that she said (at a rather critical moment!), "Let me see...you mean, they did this to Max?! (her older bro) What about Daddy? And GRANDPA?!)" Everyone got a kick out of it...
