The “Nu Nu” Party
Most women remember vividly the first time “Aunt Flo” came to town and I’d be willing to wager ED’s left nut that 90% of women did NOT have a pleasant experience. I grew up in a house with basically three sisters and I can safely say none of us had pleasant experiences when we started our periods.
My poor, poor father. Can you imagine having a bunch of hormonal girls and a wife, all on the rag at the same time (this happens guys, when women live together they start “cycling together”. Consider yourself warned)? My dad has a golden ticket straight to heaven I tell you what!
But now, my sisters and I are all grown and have gotten over the unpleasant experiences.
Well… kind of.
A few weeks ago I got a message from my older sister Sara saying that two of her step daughters have started their “New Moon cycle”–and no, that is not a Twilight reference although ED decided he liked “Nu Nu” better–and she was throwing them a party.
For starting your period?
OH HELL YEAH!
What better way to let your scared teen/tweenage girls know that becoming a woman doesn’t have to tramatic. Embrace your femininity and hell, CELEBRATE IT!
And how do you celebrate becoming a woman you ask?
I am thoroughly impressed and inspired by my sisters idea to make a party out of a confusing and, hell I’ll say it, sucky time in a young girl life.
Way to go on the parenting skills Sara!!! Oh, and because I am so impressed I won’t even complain about how a room full of 12 & 13 year olds called me old.
Welcome to womanhood you little brats!
