We did a little shopping last weekend. Before leaving the mall, Katie and I went to the bathroom. She didn’t have to go so she waited outside the stalls for me. When I came out, she was standing near the tampon machine. She points to the word “tampon” and starts to sound it out.
“What’s a tampon, mom?”
“That’s something that mom’s and big girls use. You don’t need to know about it right now. I’ll explain it to you when you’re older.”
She gave me a weird look, but accepted the explanation. I washed my hands and while I was getting some paper towel, she says . . . .
“Oh, look! They have napkins, too!”
