Check out this ad from Hello Flo, a subscription service that delivers tampons and other supplies. An interesting idea but definitely not cheap.
My favorite line: “Periods don’t have glitter in them.”
Yuckiest moment: The red marshmallows!
Best reaction: The scream when her dad shows up.
What I like: Of course the First Moon party is over-the-top, but what I like is the openness about periods. Love that the men in this child’s life are allowed to talk about a taboo subject.
My childhoods would have been a lot easier if this were so for me. Periods were never discussed, and I frequently made up excuses as to why I didn’t want to go swimming, sometimes even getting in trouble for my spoil sport attitude.
How sad that I didn’t feel comfortable telling my mom and dad why I didn’t want to go to the pool.
Hooray for changes for the better!
And I should add, that Mom got lots better. I take great joy that she loved my blog and even did the art for this post.
