OK, I'm the mom of 2 girls and 4 boys. Boys are easy! My 15 yo dd started when she was 12. We were prepared. Had the talk. All that. And she's been great! She wasn't afraid which was so awesome because I started at 13 and was scared out of my mind! So, my 10 yo dd just came into my bedroom and asks me, "mom, am I a little to young to be grown up yet?" And then she shows me that her underpants have a spot on them. Sorry if that's TMI but I couldn't believe that she quite possibly is starting her first period! Not only is she 10 but she's the baby of the family and I am NOT ready for this yet. Not yet! She's a larger than average girl, taller than either me and her sister were at her age. Don't get me wrong. The period part is not what freaks me out. It's that she is 10 years old. Are girls starting at 10 nowadays? We homeschool so perhaps I'm out of touch here. Anyway, thanks for listening. It's really more about it being my baby and I was hoping to wait another 2 years. Sheesh, she's being so darn mature about it, it's amazing! OMG, and 3 PMSing girls in the house is going to be hell! Thanks, ladies!
