 pubic hair! she is starting to get pubic hair! we still bathe together on occasion, like a spa day. I wash her hair and back. I saw it and simply said "oh your getting hair down there. when you start getting under arm hair you have to shave it because people make fun of you if they see you with under arm hair."

she will be 10 in july. I dont recall when i got pubic hair, but I know I started period in 6th grade. just trying to figure out how soon her period will come since she is getting pubic hair now?

and yes i know its time to stop bathing together! Its not a gross thing, its like girl time. bash away, we will stop when she isnt comfortable with it anymore.

At least she feels comfortable enough to be open with you about these things.  Most kids aren't, just keep the lines of communication open because the really difficult years are about to begin. :) Good luck.  They are starting sooner.  My cousin just told me that her daughter who is 10 has a full on "bush" (sorry no tactful way to describe what she called it) down there.  I can't believe girls are going through puberty so young now.  I didn't hit puberty till 13.

She is lucky to have a mom like you who she can talk about these things with. I would have been mortified talking to my mom about these things.
