My Awkward Moments

Posted by: chelley on Sat Jan 20, 2007

I was 9 years old ,I was at a family reunion. I had no idea what a period was. My mom had not told me yet. My oldest sister was the one who helped me, she was Ten years my senior. That time was not a good time for me. When I finally got home I learned about it from a BOOK my mom was not a good resource. The book was a hardback, it was about fertility.When I went back to school[this happened during the summer] none of the girls around me seemed to have theirs. I remember feeling alone. It was not good.So it could have been a better experience.I was very young, if my mother had known it would have happened that young she would have told me sooner. I guess it all goes with growing up and feeling awkward.In retrospect I have always been open with my daughter. She will not be caught by surprise. She is almost 11.
