The weeks before school started we pulled together all the school supplies we needed for both Emily and Brad. We also packed some “extras” for Emily.
Those extras included a small cosmetic bag with deodorant, a brush, chap stick and a couple Kotex tween pads. Her and I have talked about being prepared, whether she’s at home or school. I remember having a small bag in my locker for those times I needed them…and those essentials came in hand more times than not.
If you are getting prepared to talk to your daughter, check out the information and tips at First Period Talk. These are so useful! They also have an area just for our daughters. It debunks myths she may have heard and gives her some great advice. The site is totally geared to our girls ages.
