Or maybe she threw you a party.
There's a period party planner to help you. Menarche Parties R Us (yes, that's the real name! eek) offers to "create a life time of memories for your daughter by hosting a menarche party for her. A menarche party can make this time easier and more meaningful for both the young lady beginning menstruation and her parents."
You can buy products for your own Menarche Party, including Pin the Ovaries on the Uterus...
A custom, not-at-all-embarrassing cake design proclaiming your big news with your name and photo...
and Puberty Bingo (in order to menstruate you must B13?)
Plus, fun puberty greeting cards!
Ok, Lovelies, there might be some of you out there thinking this is sweet, but to me, the last thing I would have wanted in middle school was my mom throwing me a party announcing to all my friends that I was now in need of tampons.
Do you agree?
