Our 10 year old daughter came to me yesterday and said...

Posted by   + Show Post

"Mommy, I think I started my period at school today."

Aww, Kiara...yay!  Now our oldest daughter who is 13 and our youngest daughter have both started their periods.  our 12 and 11 year olds haven't yet, but now our 11 year old wants to carry around a pad JIC *just in case* she starts.

I gave her instructions on how to put a pad in, and to change it whenever she goes to the bathroom, and to not leave the remnants in the bathroom or her dad will get grossed out *lol*...which he has in the past. ;)

Kayla also told her that she started when she was 10 too, so i am sure that made her feel better. :)

She's definitely growing up!

WOW!! Ten years young and having a period?  OMG! that is way too young! I was almost SIXTEEN when I started mine.  I cannot imagine.  Kids nowadays are growing up way too fast! So very glad that I had a son--so we won't have to deal with this.  ARGH!!

thanks! She did have it rough for a couple days with crazy mood swings, but she sailed through it pretty well.

Quoting AlyssaN:

Aww. Congrats on her road to womanhood. And hope she has easy ones with not a lot of hormonal/mood fluctuations lol.

ha! yep, it does suck. Good luck to you and the talks you will be having sooner than later. They are doozies!

Quoting bigmama423:

Poor child!! I think it sucks being a female!! ;)

I'm not ready for any of my little ones to grow up. I'm not ready for any of these "talks" either!!
