Still Remember It Now

I was 12 when I got my first period. It was the last day of Year 7, just before we broke up for summer. I had some weird stomach pains the night before but obviously having never had cramps before I didn't know that's what they were. I woke up in the morning and had too pee and there was brown blood when I wiped. I was like Oh my god, I started my period. Oh no! I was such a tomboy back then, I really didn't want to start them ever. Anyways, I went downstairs to watch tv and blood was dripping slowly into my underwear so i went upstairs and knocked on the bathroom door while my mum was having a bath and just came out with it. She gave me a pad and asked if I needed any help (no thank you...the idea of my mum helping me stick something in my underwear seemed very wrong, and anyway, they're not exactly rocket science are they!?) And that was it really! She told my dad and my sister and when i got home from school she checked with me that I was still bleeding and then said "looks like you're a woman now kiddo!" Very grateful I was at home with my mum when it started!
