Mommy Moment | Girl Talk

Hey friends! Welcome to another day of a moment with Shona. Today I felt the need to talk about something that has been weighing on my heart for roughly two years now. I know, I know.. two years is a pretty long time huh? Well, at least I’m ready to discuss it now.

This post is a touchy topic because it is directed towards mothers with daughters. You may have already guessed what this post will be about based off the title, “girl talk”, but I’m going to go ahead and drop the bomb anyway. I’m going to have a discussion about some of the stages of becoming a young lady. If you know me and my girls, you’re probably saying, “say whaaaaat?!” outloud right now lol! I’m over here covering my eyes {with one hand} and shaking my head because I just can’t believe I have to have this discussion already!

One thing I’ve noticed with this new generation is, kids are so much taller and seem to develop a lot faster than my generation. Like the girls I see now look like they’re sixteen or eighteen, but they’re really only thirteen years old! The fact that I have to start a conversation about the changes that are taking place in my seven and eight year old girls is insane! But, as their mother, it’s my responsibility to do so before they find out about it at school or somewhere else.

So, mamas, I need your prayers this week for sure. I don’t want my girls to be afraid of the stages I’m going to talk about. I want them to feel comfortable asking me any questions they may have about their bodies, as well as telling me when they feel pain in their breast or if they’re experiencing cramps. It took everything in me to type that last sentence lol! I’m so not ready for them to be on their menstrual cycle. But hey, it’s a part of growing up right?

 

So tell me, are you debating having “girl talk” with your daughter(s)? If so, let me give you a word of advice. Let your heart tell you want to do. I personally don’t think anyone can tell you the proper time to have this talk. So let your motherly instincts lead you. Let me know how it goes because I’d love to hear about it!

 

Until next time, “laugh hard, love harder, capture each moment & sprinkle a little joy in someone else’s life.” – XO Shona
