Right before the conclusion of 5th grade, I remember asking to be excused from class. I wasn’t really sure why, but my stomach felt…different. I went into the stall, did what I needed to do and as I finished up, there was a surprise. My first period. I immediately headed to the school office and told the secretary that I needed to call home. She asked what was the problem, so I walked closer to her and discreetly whispered, “My cycles here“. Her eyes got huge, and she asked, “Are you sure?”, and I was positive.
You see, the one thing that my mother fully prepared me for, was menstruation. I remember having conversations about it as early as 8 years old, during our visits together. The information was never too much, I was able to ask questions…and get answers. I had been carrying an extra pair of undergarments & a sanitary napkin for at least a year before I actually needed it. I really appreciate my mom giving that gift to me.
I in turn, have done the same for my daughter (one of them so far). She recently had a what I considered a prelude to “the big show”, a few weeks ago and was confident as can be. I’d like to attribute that to preparation.
I was recently given the opportunity to share the Dot Girl First Period Kit with Allie, and wanted to give you a peek of what’s inside.
