Well we got through the night with no problems. This morning Beth got up and had her breakfast before I said anything. I suggested that we go into the toilet to change her padÂ which she wasn’t too happy about. Beth rolled the old pad up and put it in the bin like I asked her though she did have an issue with the bin being a home style bin as opposed to the bins in the toilets like we’d discussed. At least I knew that some of our talk had sunk in then. I then showed her how to open a clean pad and take the sticky strips off which I did for her. When I said I would be with her at these times she wasn’t happy which I took as a good sign of her wanting privacy. She was happy then to pull her knickers up and get dressed and hasn’t said anything about it since.
I’m just playing it cool today. I’m not sure if she doesn’t want to talk about it because she’s embarrassed or because she doesn’t want it to be happening. Either way, if I don’t make to much of a deal of it then hopefully it wont be a big deal if you know what I mean. We’re going shopping today before Sensational Kids so that I can take her into the toilets with a proper bin. She needs some new clothes so I’ll buy her some and a little pad purse and we’ll have a hot chocolate and lunch. That way it’ll be like a nice mummy/daughter day together. I must say, as far as her mood is concerned, she’s great. I don’t know whether it’s because she had pmt or because she’s relieved that it’s not that bad, either way it doesn’t matter, she’s happy as Larry. I’ll keep you posted.
