I remember when I started my period, I had just turned 10, in primary school and the only girl in the whole school that Aunt Flo was currently visiting on a regular basis.
I was distraught.
For the first visit, I was still luckily on Summer holidays, however I was so mortified that I kind of went into shock and denial that I told no one, thankfully it was only light and managed with wads of toilet paper, a rogue pad or 2 I snaffled from the bathroom and it was all over and done with in just over a day.
I was mortified.
When it came for the 2nd month I just couldn’t bear it and sat wailing on the toilet where my Mum came downstairs and found me, congratulated me on becoming a women and provided me with some teen sanitary products, a hanky and a hug and made it all right, or as all right as I could be.
Even though I had the ‘time of the month’ conversation with my Mum I don’t think anything prepares you for when it happens.
So with my teen daughter, thankfully there was no periods at 10 but we had discussed them well in advance, but fear I was in denial that they would happen … a few months ago they did and I am such a crap Mum … I really had nothing motivational or inspirational to say on the matter like my Mum.
Having been introduced to the new Teen Parcel by the folks a Pink Parcel, I am kicking myself I didn’t have this pack a couple of months ago .. who needs motivational or inspirational words from Mum .. If I had passed her this little beauty! ….
With nail polish, Clean and Clear products, a Tea Pigs tea bag (chocolate flavour), a bag of Haribo sweets and a discount voucher for 10% off from the Binky London website along with branded Tampons and the well thought out bag for them, I have no doubt she would have been over the moon .. her reaction on receiving it today said it all….
“Thanks Mum” … as a parent of a hormonal highly strung teen I pretty much Haven’t heard a thank you since 2009 from her so it’s made my day, Parent points to me … its been a while.
These parcels are normally priced at £9.95 (each month) but currently you can get your first box for just £5.95 which I have to say with the amount of quality sanitary products, and goodies along with the convenience factor its a hit in my book!
Thanks Pink Parcel for showing me my Teen can still smile.
