One of the things that us Jewish mommies have to look forward to when we 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.
Even for the initiated it can feel 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 think 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 these adorable tees from Tiny Revolutionary($22). Printed on the worlds softest burnout tees (like your favorite vintage tee) they simply say “I Survived the Bris!”
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, I’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!
