comment Baby boy's MOTHER as the sandek(et)
Avi - If the questioner would put their source of historical evidence it may be easier to meet your requirements - however all I could find was historical evidence that it was not accepted in Halacha.

Hey - last week's Parsha Tziporah was the Mohel. Perhaps if a female would do the Milah then you can have a female Sandak.

comment Baby boy's MOTHER as the sandek(et)
A Bris in the past was not like the Bris we make today. Often it was done at home with only the parents present and therefore there was no other option other than the mother being Sandak. However due to modesty it is not proper in today's settings.

comment Tcheiles on Shabbos
Yes there is no Mitzva to be Machmir when you don't need to, and in addition if the Chumra makes your father and grandfathers look like they were doing the wrong thing, then it is inappropiate.

Then when something good happens to you - why don't you say Boruch Shemayim instead of Boruch Hashem?

comment Why is fear of Hashem known as Yiras Shamayim?
I guess it must be - as where I live and grew up it called Yiras Shemayim - and hence this question.

comment Why is fear of Hashem known as Yiras Shamayim?
I know the Pesukim say Yiras Hashem, my question is why in conversation we call it Yiras Shamayim?
