Sydney was in her fifth grade class having the usual amazing time when the teacher suddenly announced that "today, we are going to talk about periods, the parts of the body and the reproductive system." Can you imagine? A pop up Sex Ed class? She was like , "Uhm, WHAAAT?!?!?, eewwww...gross!" Talk about instant anxiety and panic attack!.
The boys from her class went into another classroom across the hall and thank goodness for that because it would be so embarrassing to talk about girl and boy private parts and stuff right in front of each other. She just wanted to die! It was a talk about the reproductive system, human anatomy and physiology. This was "The Talk", the birds and the bees talk gone wrong!. This was't a private awkward talk with parents, Mom or Dad, this was in front of everyone!
All the girls in the 5th grade were crammed inside her classroom while all the boys in the 5th grade were crammed in the classroom across the hall. It was so tight in there that she could barely breathe. And it got worse...
The teacher pointed to parts of a picture saying, "this is a girl's vagina.....everybody say 'VAGINA'"! Guess who was the loudest person in the packed classroom? Sydney was yelling "VAGINA!" as loud as she could and everybody looked at her like she was crazy, the weirdest person in the world.
Then the unthinkable happened, the teacher made the students say "penis" out loud but this time Sydney kept her mouth shut. This was anatomy that she wanted nothing to do with...And she will never be able to "unsee" those visuals - pictures are worth a thousand words. OMG!
The teacher passed around pads to all the girls letting them know she had a stock of pads should they ever have their period and need one.
Meanwhile Sydney could hear the boys across the hall laughing and screaming and to her, that was just so uncool! "So immature!", she said. At the end, all the girls got samples of pads and panty liners. The boys got deodorant and gum. She just couldn't believe it!
It turned out that the first sex education class talking about puberty, a vag and a penis wasn't so bad after all. Embarrassing? TOTALLY! But everyone share that embarrassment. It's one storytime, she will never forget. It turned out to be a really funny story...Hilarious! Probably the first "embarrassing period story of her life."
