Tiny Revolutionary "Bris" Tees: Getting snipped should count for something

bris tee.gif One of the things that Jewish mommies have to look forward to when they have sons, is a Bris. What is a Bris you ask? It’s a party for the baby and family, held on the eighth day of life, and it is also when the ritual of circumcision is performed. Usually by a trained professional called a Mohel, who may or may not also be an MD. Our Mohel is a MD — he’s also known for attending to both Jewish and non-Jewish celeb babies but I don’t think he’s giving me that scoop!

Even for the initiated it can feel very strange to plan a party that includes both a medical procedure and deli platters. I think the closest thing I have heard of in our modern culture involves grown women and botox (and perhaps less pastrami). But I digress … Understandably, planning your son’s Bris can be a little traumatic, for all of you. You’re a new mom, he’s a new human. Your husband may decide he is experiencing primal memories of his own Bris and develop a case of melodramatic PTSD. It’s a good time for a little glass of wine (take it easy if you are breastfeeding please!) and a full dose of a sense of humor.

Enter adorable tees from Tiny Revolutionary. Consider it baby’s first memento tee for his earliest performance as a rock star. Printed on the worlds softest burnout tees (like your favorite vintage tee), they simply say "I Survived the Bris!" ($22). If you have such a joyous and nerve-wrenching event to attend in the near future, this is a gift that is sure to be extremely well received by all. I’m just waiting for the parent size version because really, people, milktee.gifI’m already thinking that I have nothing to wear to this party!  Tiny Revolutionary also makes a cute, humorous "My Mommy’s Milk is Kosher" tee ($22). The gals at the JCC are gonna kvell.

Ciaran’s Note: I realize many parents have strong feelings about whether or not to circumcise. I respect the choices of others to refrain, and respectfully request no comments about our family’s traditions and decisions here. But feel free to comment on the tees!

Mom Said It

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
