99 of you have looked at this yet only 4 people had a puberty story to tell. C'mon people! Are you WOMEN or WIMPS! Have some courage...share a puberty story!
Ok, this is a girls only post (Dad..you've been warned!)
So, puberty was a long time ago...way too long ago. I don't really remember too much about it. I remember the day I started my period. I was sitting there waiting for my friend Mindy and her parents to pick me up because we were going to be driving for 6 hours on our way to the state softball tournament. I had to sit in the car for 6 hours wearing a pad for the first time. Not to mention the fact that I had to play softball all weekend with one too! But hey....we won the tournament and we were state champions....so it wasn't all bad!
I remember sweating for the first time in PE....you know the kind of sweat that actually was stinky! It was so embarrassing to all of a sudden be getting sweatt spots under my arm pits. Do you remember that? Seriously I could take you to the exact spot in the gym where I was standing when I looked down and saw the sweat spot on my t-shirt!
I remember having growing pains in my legs when I was a kid, but growing pains in my "chest area" is something I do not remember. Do ya'll remember this? And why...please tell me why...do the books out there on puberty insist on using the term "breast buds"? That term needs to be outlawed! eeeewwww..... it just weirds me out!
So what about you? What do you remember about puberty? What we remember we will relive through our daughters...and what we don't remember....well, we will get to live through it with them anyway! Gosh, I can't wait!!!
