But I think I will definitely remember Lauren coming up to me at church on Sunday...(she had stayed with my mom b/c we were at Monster Jam) and telling me..."I started my period last night". **GASP** I wasn't with her when it happened! But probably most of us aren't with our moms when it happens. I hugged her and made sure she was ok...she had found some pads that my sister had left there and was using them. We had talked about it a lot and I tried my best to prepare her for how to react. I knew it would be coming soon and couldn't believe she hadn't started yet. I try to be as open and honest with my kids about things. I would rather them ask me then get their info from other sources.
So there you have it...she is officially growing up on me. She will turn 13 on Thursday...sniff sniff...mom's having a little trouble understanding how she only has 5 years left with her at home. Yikes!!! I went to the store to buy her some supplies...when asked if she wanted to go with me...she gave me a definite NO!! :)
I sent her off to school today with a cute little bag to tuck away in her book bag filled with pads...wearing dark clothes...and lots of advice and love. I think she will be fine...but I am praying she has a great day with no issues.
So how about it...any advice you moms of teenagers on this subject?
Does anyone have a unforgettable story on this subject you care to share?
