Tonight both of the girls are off to sleep overs, leaving the house in unsettling silence. Kailey went to a friend’s house for a party and sleep over after school. I know she is in good hands but still my stomach is in knots with her gone. Madisen decided to go to my mom’s since Kailey is away. Kailey has yet to call home so I assume she is having a blast. She was already in sleepover mode when I left her this afternoon, and she ignored me talking to her friends. Madisen on the other hand has called three times in the last hour. She has yet to mention the big incident at school, which she told my mom about nonstop the entire way home from school. Apparently when she was in the bathroom today at school, and some older girl started her period for the first time. The whole incident was taking place when Madisen walked in the bathroom. She told my mom some girl was in the bathroom with blood all over her panties and …down there too! The girl was screaming and crying to other girls in the bathroom that she was dying. Madisen said she really thought she was dying, so she immediately started praying for her. As the other girls ran and got the teacher, Madisen panicked and made her way back to class. (I would imagine everyone there probably heard all about it. No doubt my little drama queen freaked out the entire class. So much for that girl’s privacy, huh) Well, she continued to tell my mom, she thinks the girl doesn’t eat enough and that’s why it happened. Which leaves me curious to know what else was said in class. My mom said she wasn’t going to touch the conversation with a ten foot pole, and refused to even comment on the story. I guess when she comes home I will have some explaining to do on her level about the situation. Until then I will at least know she will be eating well and she won’t forget her bedtime prayers.
