I know it’s a bit class-less to post about it online but, well, here I am.
I feel dizzy and confused. Why? Obviously, I saw this coming and we’ve talked about it in great detail (as I’m an awesome Mom and all) but I wasn’t prepared for this onslaught of emotions.
I feel equally proud and scared. And I realize that this must be how all parents of girls feel.
Periods are THE WORST and to know that she’ll have to deal with this shit for 40+ years…ugh. I’d go through hell to reduce her suffering.
Also, I am keenly aware that it is a biological reality right now that I could become a grandparent. Talk about a kick in the head. Yes, I’ve talked about sex with her. I’m annoyingly comprehensive when it comes to this stuff.
Time to go scream into my pillow.
