I got my period for the first time in the seventh grade along with most of my friends. But here's the kicker. It was while spending the weekend at my dad's apartment. If there was ever a moment that made me wish my parents never got divorced, this was it. I'm sure my dad felt the same.
Mazzy has asked what tampons are before and I have no idea what to say. I can't remember who explained it to me or how, but I know the time I bled through my pants in social studies class remains one of the most embarassing of my life.
Nope. That's not true. The time I mistakenly took a tampon out of my backpack instead of a pen in Earth science was even worse.
There are mixed reviews underneath this video (Oh my god! Young girls have vaginas?!) but I think it's awesome. It's for a site called Hello Flo that delivers period starter kits to girls meeting Aunt Flo for the first time.
Anything that makes it easier for parents (moms and dads) to talk to their daughters' about their menstrual cycles and lessens the stigma of carrying around a tampon (does everybody do the "up the sleeve" trick?) in case GOD FORBID someone should see you, sounds like a good thing to me.
Also, this little actress is GOING PLACES.
Thank you to Bad Parenting Moments for showing me this video.
Spill it. What was your most embarrassing period moment?
