OMG I just got my first period. Even though I couldn’t wait to get it as I thought it would make me more grown up, when it happened I actually thought it was kinda gross. I quietly tried to tell my mum but she was totally OTT excited. She got me a humongous pad and sent me back to the bathroom. When I came out she was on the phone proudly telling my auntie. I couldn’t believe it!!
My brothers thought it was hilarious. I just sat there in my pad feeling like I’d been pranked or something!!!
Even worse, that night she threw me a period party with all these balloons, streamers and lollies.
