Dad Becomes Period Fairy For Daughter’s First Step Into Womanhood!
Getting your period for the first time can be a daunting experience. Especially when you’re at school and you think you ‘pooped’ your pants. One dad got the frantic call from his daughter and put two and two together and realised it wasn’t poop at all!
Maverick Austin, shared his adorable story on Facebook saying:
“So, today I got “the call!”
“Dad, it’s weird, but think I pooped my pants!”
So, I rush to school, bring her a change of undies, put the old ones in a bag, and rush back to my conference call. I threw the bag in the kitchen trash.
A few hours later, she calls and I had to put a very important work meeting I’m hosting on hold, which I never do. She says to me, “Dad, it happened again.”
At this point, I’m confused and very annoyed because I’m super busy …
I yell, “Just wipe your butt better, then stuff toilet paper in the back of your pants. I’ll have to call you back in an hour!” and I hang up.
A few minutes later it hits me …
I rush to the trash to dig out and inspect the undies from earlier and scream, “That’s blood not poop!!!”
I interrupt my project meeting and explain, I’m very sorry but I have to go!
I’m racing to the school while calling them, telling the nurse to “go find my child!”
I’m speeding and having a panic attack because my child called me for help and I just “left her to die on the battlefield.”
I run in the office and she’s standing there, very calm looking at me. She says, “Dad … I officially started my first …” and I stopped her. I said, “I already know, Avi. It hit me a few minutes after I hung up on you.”
The stress of raising a daughter.
Later on she says to me, “Don’t I get something like when a tooth falls out?”
So, I snuck off to the store.
When she got out of the shower, I told her “The Period Fairy” brought her something.
Awww! How sweet! We could all use a Period Fairy in our lives- no matter how young or old. Am I right?!
