How To Support Your Daughter After She Starts Her Menstrual CycleFeatured

As a mom, just like you, I’ve watched my daughter grow year after year. Knowing that she would eventually start her cycle and officially become a young lady. Seriously, are we ever ready!?

I don’t know about you but I wasn’t. I wasn’t ready for the talk. I wasn’t ready for buying double the feminine supplies. I wasn’t ready for the questions. I just wasn’t ready!

As if mother nature told me screw you Mom, you better get ready!! Niah wakes up yesterday morning grumpy, continuing to confirm the morning person she is not! Next thing I know, I hear her yelling “Mom, I think you need to come here”! Lord knows, I didn’t want to move from my comfy spot so immediately my irritation set in.

As if I couldn’t move any slower, I headed to the bathroom to see what the urgentness was. It was then that I felt like someone had slapped me in the face. It was then that I was forced to deal with the reality that my 10-year-old had started her menstrual cycle!

Imagine my surprise, imagine my heart break! I just want my baby girl back….

But then the inevitable happened, my heart softened! My first born, my only daughter, my baby girl has entered this new phase in her life. As a mom, my duty is to make sure she succeeds, has the best resources, and the best memories to share with her daughter.Continue reading
