Dad saves the day
I got my period when I was 11 while my mum was on a work trip. I didn’t want to tell my dad but when I could only find tampons in my mum’s drawer, I knew I had to.
He drove me to the shop and even came in with me to make sure I got what I needed. We were as clueless as each other (how many different pads and tampons does the world need?!?!?!), but we picked some pads that looked like they’d do the job. We then got takeaway together as well as a big tub of cookie dough ice cream, so in a way it was a bit of a bonding moment for dad and me <3 <3
It was totally awkward but my dad was so understanding it was actually really sweet.
