DON'T BE TOOOOO PUSHY WITH IT time will come ... just always have some "spare equipment" on hand.. sometimes i like to use hippy pads and other times i use regular disposable pads from HEB or whatever i guess its just the way your mom does it or who influences you cause my mom is totally NOT a hippie but my "sister" (just a close family friend) is a hippie and she uses hippie pads and then cups... so i guess just have a variety or if you guys are TRULY close enough... talk to her about what she would like to use...
if you moms out there have any questions for me... SHOOT!
|It was kind of a shock when she switched to tampons, though; I reached for one and the box was empty!|
