What would you have said?



So I am using the bathroom and Elly, my 5 yr old, comes in and looks at me and says...



Elly: "Mommy, why are you wearing a diaper for?" (yeah its my pad)



Me: "Elly,........ just go play so I can finish."



But what would you have said? lol, Noting came to my mind, so I told her to go play.

I would have said it's called a pad and because I'm on my period.

tell her to go play if she continued asking i would just tell her that when you are big you get a period and have to wear a diaper sometimes

So? It's a period, it's a part of life. She might as well learn about it from you. That's actually a really good learning opportunity instead of waiting until she's getting hers and sitting her down at the table and making it all awkward.

I would have told her that adult women wear them sometimes? No big deal.

The truth. God forbid you tell your kids the truth and properly educate them on the human body. So sinful to be truthful.
