We’ve all been in a situation when we get our period and realise we’re out of pads or tampons. Looks like this is what happened with this 13-year-old American girl who was then driven by her mother, Belinda Hankins to a neighbouring store.
Simple enough right? If only it was. Turns out, the teen couldn’t find where they were kept because no one likes to advertise loudly that they have sanitary napkins and tampons or “stuff for your vagina” here. Because, it’s taboo and secret and WE MUST NEVER SPEAK ABOUT IT. Shhh.
This is exactly the point that this hilarious text exchange between the mother-daughter duo, posted by Belinda on Facebook, makes. Oh and, the little genius proceeds to draw a map for her mother so that she doesn’t have to navigate through the huge store the way she had to.
The Facebook post went viral thereafter, being shared over 55,000 times. And while there were those lauding the pair for their brilliant take on the simple situation, there were others who came up with all sorts of concerns about the child’s safety and their lack of preparedness at the time of the month. Others accused Belinda of having staged the conversation to gain traction on the internet.
In another Facebook post, Belinda gives it right back to the haters.
Adorable and on point. Mother-daughter relationship goals, you all!
