Today my daughter told me her breasts were feeling a little tender. First, I have to say how wonderful it is to have a girl so honest and unselfconscious. Somehow the lesson that there is no shame and nothing to be embarrassed about when it comes to bodies actually sank it.
I responded with a sympathetic nod and before I could say anything, she asked if it something I went through when I was little. Isn’t she precious? I laughed and said, ‘Honey, it is every month!’ Her expression was priceless.
Why do we tell them becoming a woman is so awesome??
