8yr SD last night told me that there was red when she wiped. SD had the toilet paper in her hand, so I asked her to show it to me. I didnt see anything, but I told SD we would talk about it later. SD also said that she had told BM the night before. So, I text BM to let her know & if BM wanted me to talk with SD or let BM be the one to talk with SD. BM called & said that SD already knew that a period was part of being a girl & that you bleed. BM didn't want to get really deep into the talk, but BM was comfortable w/ me telling SD that if she was starting there would be blood in her panties. So, I talked to SD some last night. I told her that it was our bodies cleaning themselves out. BM doesnt want to have the sex/baby talk. I told her that there can be cramping & explained that it was your muscles tightening.

Get her a copy of "The Care and Keeping of You". Ask her to read it or read it with her. Then make it clear that you will answer any questions she has, anytime.
