Mom and Intro to Periods
How would you say your mom did during your early period years? Exceptional job, making you feel comfortable with your period? Or could she have used some work in that department? Will you do things differently if you have a daughter?

I don't recall my mom ever having "the talk" with me. But in fifth grade we had a puberty class and were given a booklet about what to expect and I read that religiously haha. I didn't start until I was 14 and was one of the last ones in my class to start. But I called my mom and she seemed kinda excited, and I called my grandma who picked me up from school, and the nurse sent pads with me. I was kinda embarrassed, but kinda proud at the same time. When my mom got home she told me that I could use her supplies under the sink. And asked if I understood how to use tampons, but I was embarrassed and said yes even though I didn't. I actually didn't use a tampon until I was 18.

With my daughter, I will definitely prepare her. When she begins to get boobies, I will get her a training bra and explain she's growing up and this is the first step. Next she'll start getting her period.
