I got my first period during band class in sixth grade. I felt something and knew it immediately! I got picked up by dad right afterward and the second I got into the car I told him. Yes, my DAD. I wasn’t embarrassed about it at all. I think he was freaking out a little bit though. The only thing he could say was that I only have three years left to grow taller and I don’t even know if it’s true or not!
