Hey you hot dads put your clothes on, there's a woman in the house!!!
Sage, pull your jeans up. Daddy Geek Boy turn off the porn and Tent Camper put away the nudy pictures.
OK, here's the deal... I'm here to talk to you guys (and girls) about menstruation, the monthly visitor, Aunt Flow, or whatever it is you want to call it.
Dot Girl has a really cool product to make the 'talks' a little easier on you and your daughter. Girls get their period. Period. There's no getting around it, it WILL happen. My daughter is 12 and she is one of those girls that does NOT want to address the fact that she will indeed have her period one day. My eldest daughter was different, she called me in to see it and she celebrated for a few days. She embraced her passage into womanhood with pride, but not my 12 year old. She stuffs her face into her pillow and puts her fingers in her ears every time I try to discuss it, so I got her a Dot Girl kit!
I think it's awesome! The kit is in a cute and discrete little bag and in it there is a pamphlet, panty liners, pads, coupons for more pads, a period calendar, a mini heating pad to help eliminate cramps and more! Seriously, how cute is it??
I think this is a must for parents of pre-pubescent girls, especially you single fathers out there (yes Trooper Thorn and Coach Dad I'm looking at you). Our house is constantly full of teenage girls and I think having these cute little kits around eases the embarrassment that some girls have discussing their menstruation. I've seen my daughter checking out her kit at night with a flashlight when she thinks I'm not looking and I know it will lead to discussions as soon as she's ready.
I'm thinking of getting several more kits to keep in the guest bathroom for when my daughter's friends come over and need supplies.
Check out Dot Girl and if you would like a kit for your daughter simply leave a comment and one of you will get a cute discrete period kit! (If you aren't one of the lucky winners, go to their site and enter coupon code DOT for a 10% discount)
Giveaway ends on November 24th.
Ok, I'm done, get back to your testosterone induced posts about how you all rule the world and how big your remotes are.
