Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

My six 6 old went without permission into our room and found my tampons

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
He was not suppose to go in there but my husband was on the phone with his mom in Australia and wasn't watching him and I was out grocery shopping. He found my tampons in our bathroom and he ran to ask daddy what they were and my husband told him they were a band aid of sorts. A day later his friend comes over and happens to cut himself. My son runs to my bathroom and gives him a tampon. He takes it home in his backpack where his mom finds it. Keep in my mind I did not know any of this happened. I am at work and his mom calls me irate telling me I should put my tampons were my son cant find them. I feel bad but she was like calling me the worlds worst mom. WTH?

OMG she was a little out of hand..she should have been able to laugh about it. It's not like he knew what they were and anyone talked about vagina or anything. My kids have found my tampons before (I only keep them in my bathroom storage drawer under our sink...not going to go to great efforts to "hide" them) and I've found some unwrapped in the house...they had played with them not knowing what they were. All I had to say was that they were for mom and not toys, so don't play with them again. No biggie.

I don't see the big deal my kids have known what tampons were and what they were actually for since they were itty bitty.  When they were little they were in the bathroom with me and saw me change them.   My oldest two teenage boys and 7yr old have zero problem going to get me some out of the bathroom if I ask. 

I feel it important they are comfortable around it since they will have wives and girlfriends and it is a part of life.  She needs to relax it isn't like it was something perverted.

Wrestlers and other contact athletes put tampons up their noses all the time. Unless the kid brought home a used one it isn't the end of the world.

That sounds like a great story for his prom date. Horrify them both. Two birds, one stone. Lol


Quoting Howardx5:

My 2 year old got into an entire box of tampons, opened them all, and took every one of them out of the applicator. 

embarrassing maybe if you have older kids who may understand what they are. but otherwise just laugh it off. its a funny story to tell later.

Kids seeing a tampon is CPS worthy. Your kids should be taken...wait...What?
