husband and Aly came by tonight to drop off some medications for me and husband asked Aly if she had anything special to share with me. She got upset at first, but calmed down after a good snuggle. She started her period last night!! I feel so badly for her, she is just 10 yo, will be 11 in mid June. I was shocked husband handled the whole thing so smoothly and matter of factly, I had already showed her how to "take care of things" and she had pads in her school backpack for months now. She is soooo upset because the school swim party is this Friday and she knows she won't be able to swim. Maybe this first one will just be a short, light one and be over by Friday?!?!? One can only hope. She said she didn't have any cramps and was just flowing lightly, but she did have an awful headache. Hopefully she doesn't fall into my footsteps of getting migraines with the dreaded monthly curse!! I hugged onto her so tightly and said how proud I was of her for handling it so well and being such a grown up young lady. She said she was worried someone would tease her at school, so I gave her some hints on how to be real discreet. She is such an athletic kiddo, hoping this will help her have lighter monthly's. I barely had any in my teens, was way too active and athletic so I was super happy about that!! My little girl turned into a young lady last night! How do they grow up so fast??
