The Dot Girl’s First Period Kit is a perfect way to introduce your adolescent daughter to what’s happening to her body without traumatizing either of you. The tiny package includes basic supplies (even a miniature heating pad) and a handy booklet with info about what to expect. I especially like the fold-up, wallet-sized calendar to help your little girl-turned-woman start tracking her cycle. Essentially, it comes with everything but the Advil–and the chocolate.
Now take a deep breath and a sip (okay, maybe a few sips) of wine, and relax. Her first period is minor compared to her first birth control question. Now that’s scary. –Julie
Yes, this was the most estrogen-laden, 180-degrees-from-the-Superbowl item we could think to review today. Football fan moms? Enjoy the game. Other moms? Enjoy the dip.
