Tridg's weenie

Also tons of you (TMI ALERT!) wanted to know if we circumscized Tridger.




......

......


Ruth was soooooo outraged by our circum-decision, but, after alot of prayer....




I realized it was definately best if him and JJWT were matchy-matchy.




Don't you think?

yes, that is precisely why we didn't

Nookleerman said...

So, are we supposed to already know the status of your husband's nether regions?

Allison Claire said...

It had to be done TAMNers. Who wants extra skin on that thing? Ewww!!!

Bradley said...

TMI, totally

TopHat said...

Um...
How is that fair to Alivyiah? Now she won't be the first of the twins to have cosmetic surgery!

Where are your priorities?

Mrs. B. Roth said...

Circumcisions were nothing but trouble for our boys ... sure, matchy matchy ... but poor little guy! PLEASE, make sure it doesn't get infected! I just hope I have nothing but girls from here on out!

moonrat said...

totally!

Ashley! said...

SAD that Ruth isn't 'in on the plan' like you and JJWT are. Everyone KNOWS even though it isn't like, you know, in the handbook or anything, ALL Celestial-minded couples make sure their little boy's pee-pees get the little slice-y slice. Way to be an good example. JJWT is TOTALLY on his way to Mission prez status! Wouldn't that be awesome!?!?!? You'd be the hottest wife there and you could righteous-flirt with all the cute little missionaries and motivate them to do their best so they can go home and marry someone almost as hot as you!

S said...

His future beauty-queen/pageant-girl is totally thanking you right now. Well maybe her mums is because we all know the future Mrs Tridg be 2.5 years younger than he is.

Sarah said...

oh wow.
just when i think it can't get better...

Rach said...

Oh.

my.

Gosh.

This might be the hardest I've laughed at a post yet. Perfect.

Kerry said...

Oh wow.

Dead on, TAMN, dead on.

The Boob Nazi said...

Ew. I can't believe you would discuss this.

Anonymous said...

HAHAHA! Are you stealing ideas directly from my sister-in-law's blog?

Kari said...

No fence, but gRosS :/

Charity said...

This really doesn't answer the question, does it?

The Bradley's said...

I'm so glad you are SO unselfish with your deets. I mean, telling us about Tridg's weenie is one thing but letting us know about JJWT's manpart is like, TOTAL SERVICE! SO GLAD I KNOW!!!


Also, I would love to know (because it's totally my business) how long you are gonna wait til you accidentally get pregnant again. I mean, are you a "Pop Em All Out And Get It Done" kind of girl or a "Drag Out Motherhood For An Eternity" girl?

The Price Family said...

Matchy-matchy! Too funny. But really, is your new little man going to notice your grown man's bits? I somehow doubt JJWT goes commando around the house when the little people are awake! If so we need to hear about that (and the emotional damage he is already doing to your little ones!!!)

Amy said...

Wow TAMN, I never would have thought you were down for genital mutilation! Ewwww!


So do you think JJWT (and now Tridg) are in for a big surprise when they get resurrected?

Paula said...

you just make sure aaliviyah gets a boob job later so she can be matchy-matchy with mommy, too.

JessalynKate said...

so if Tridger and JJWT are matchy-matchy, how soon will Alivyiah is getting chest enhancement soon?

Brian and Janette said...

As my physician father once said, "If the issue of circumcision isn't dealt with at birth, it will raise its ugly head later in life."

HAHAHA! Needless to say, we all died laughing. Get er done TAMN. I've taken care of too many elderly male patients who had to have circumcisions late in life due to complications.

strongmom said...

Hats off to TopHat's comment, I totally agree.

Alisa said...

wow- you really sidestepped that question!
I laughed so hard when I stumbled on this site- thanks for the chuckles.

Jessica said...

def, like father like son right?

DangGina said...

So great that you warn about TMI, but really, that does not exist for you. Your life (and that of your entire family) is an open book.

Neat-o...

Anonymous said...

Really...do people care?

lydpluskev said...

NO! It says in the D&C NOT TO!!!!!!!!!!! THAT'S THE SCRIPTURES! TAMN! Did you really just risk the salvation of your child???????????????????

Jean said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA... thank you for that.

Anonymous said...

Jesus was circumcised. Just sayin'!

Kate said...

TAMN..this is my first comment ever..but felt the need. I have 4 boys (not all at once..nothing close to your fertile womb!!)They all had the little snip snip...and are all great kids. No need to add any more pressure in Jr. High right!! (not that your little bundle of perfection will have to deal with that!) Keep the Joy!! Kate

Stephanie said...

okay, wait. Um, I'm sure your decision was the right one, but what, exactly, was your decision?? Did you clip or did you not? If so, did you watch? Did he scream? If not, do you really take the time to clean it every time he needs a diaper change? Or.... I mean. I'm just dying to know here.

The Vigh Household said...

Yup, matchy matchy is best. Besdies, you can't show him the answers he may need about that someday, send him to your super stud muffin for that.

Token Asian Friend said...

{hands over eyes} AAAHHHH! TAMN!

Christin said...

I think that Ruth needs to mind her own beez wax. She doesn't have any sort of motherly instinct, because her garden womb is odiously empty. I swear these RM sister slash self righteous frumpy spinsters need to get over themselves. The worse thing any righteous girl can do is go on a mission!

Liz said...

I want to know about how Tridg and Aliviyah already sleep through the night (coinicidentally, wasn't that the night you let them cry for four hours? And then they just put themselves to sleep?) Way to not let those babies manipulate you TAMN!!! So greatful that you could TEACH them to perform an automatic biological function. You are such a good mommy. Who knows what else you could teach the twinzers by leaving them to cry!!!

Casey and Jeannie said...

Seriously I'm so blessed to have your blog.

Where The Wilds Things Are said...

I have three boys + a husband and they all match. It is very important.

whyimstillsingle said...

Ew. Definitely tmi.

Annie said...

Good! Because covered wagons are so, icky!!!

The Halls said...

It's like decorating. Important to have a coinciding colorscheme!

Miss Kendra said...

that kind of boy matching is just as important as the kids matchy matchy clothes for their first photo shoot!

Maja said...

I love that you talked about circum-decision but never commit to what you did!! Hi-LAR!!

Anonymous said...

I love how some people don't get the satire of this blog....

Katie said...

Its totally not good for little boys self ersteem win their noodles don't match their daddy's. It makes them feel different and thus not a part of the family.....

ask Julie Hanks...I'm sure she'd agree.

I'm sure you've started your special savings account for A's "Graduation Augmentation"!

Matt and Jennae Porter said...

What I love most is that you titled this post "Tridg's weenie" :)

I was one of the ones that asked this question, TAMN, and you tease me by not really answering??

em said...

oh for sure. btw, have you gone shopping yet for a new wardrobe???? you know, cause you're already skinnier than you were before getting preo? i'll be you're like a size -1 now. you are so amazing tamn!!!

The G Fam said...

We will be taking our little miracle to urology at Primary's for a little snip-snip. Alls I'm saying, is if was good enough for Jesus, why not everyone?

ramsam said...

It is so great that you really take time to blog about the really important stuff. I love this post- these details are what make you such a great mom.

Anonymous said...

matchy is good...did you get the princess's ears pierced?

Kate said...

You are so clever. I love how you always answer questions but don't really answer them. You should run for some sort of political office.

Martha said...

Ummm yeah way TMI!! BTW when are you gonna announce the finalists for the mo'matechelor? I am a spinsty and my sis. nominated me (can't wait to FINALLY meet my very own anglenugget).

Mindy said...

People are so funny. Don't they realize you did NOT answer the question, to circum; to not circum. I love this blog and all the fun comments. :D Thanks for the laugh!

Lisa said...

OMG TAMN!!! I tOtALLY agree- I have ALWAYS thought that was the best reason I've heard- all that other stuff is just lame and boring. You are SO right, as usual.

Jeppson Clan said...

i laughed out loud at the title of this post, and then some more with all the comments. covered wagons... noodles...

Anonymous said...

You might as well get Tidg used to cosmetic surgery while he's young!

I here Alivyiah's getting chubs! When's the lipo scheduled?

Jess said...

Seriously, one of the best decisions you'll ever make.

Lydia said...

Btw. . . the circumcision reference is here:

D&C 74: 2-3, 6
2 Now, in the days of the apostles the law of circumcision was had among all the Jews who believed not the gospel of Jesus Christ.
3 And it came to pass that there arose a great acontention among the people concerning the law of bcircumcision, for the unbelieving husband was desirous that his children should be circumcised and become subject to the claw of Moses, which law was fulfilled.
• • •
6 That their children might remain without circumcision; and that the atradition might be done away, which saith that little children are unholy; for it was had among the Jews;

This clearly states that this was a tradition under the law of Moses and has been done away with when it comes to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To the Jews it's still a tradition because it reminds them of their duty to God, with which I have no problem. But to say that you did it because you wanted it to match his fathers or because you didn't want him to have any more "tension" in the locker room is just absurd. My husband was circumcised and the boys in his locker room made fun of him because he was and they weren't so think about that.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

hee hee

Helk yes!

And I love Paula's comment!

Kate said...

Umm people she didnt do the snip. Her man hunk is unc'd. Ummmm Trust me I know. ;)And she's right he is hot!

Motion DeSmiths said...

Amy who said "So do you think JJWT (and now Trig.) are in for a big surprise when they get resurrected?"

I LOVE YOU. That was the most brilliantly hilarious commentary about circumcision ever written.

Lyndsay said...

The title of this post is my favorite....ever. Pure genius!

Rachel said...

That is how we (and my sister I might add--and we both have 3 boys) made our decisions...respectively... They need to look the same so they don't think they are freakish. :) Love your blog. Can't believe you have twinners and are so teeny...although I've never met ya. but I have a 6 month old and still have 10 more lbs. to go....ugh.

B. Rabbit said...

But how will Tridg develop a sense of individuality if he's matchy-matchy? Think about it, TAMNers!
