Play On

This one is just for the girls!

Remember the first time... all those years ago... that you first got your period? I don't think any of us will forget that day. Not exactly a day we were joyous about, but certainly a day that took us up a level in maturity, and feeling like we were moving from children to... pre-adults. Right?

Do you remember, though, the stories we'd hear? Stories about not washing our hair while we had our periods, and how we should avoid swimming in the ocean because the blood would attrack sharks? Oh, the stories, (some of them crazy!) were plentiful, and I'm sure we all have a tale or two from our past that we'd love to share with our friends.

Now we are older and wiser, and many of us have daughters who will soon be entering this new stage of their lives. (I've got two boys myself, so these conversations won't be happening in my house!) Soon, you'll be having some serious discussions. It's easier to talk about sensitive subjects and share advice with our closest friends and hopefully, you have an open enough relationship with your daughter(s) to be able to be open with them and answer any and all of their questions more realistically than some of things we heard when we were growing up!

Of course, it's most important that we make sure we're comfortable and feel protected when it's our time of the month.

Playtex Gentle Glide 360 tampons are asking Canadian women to share any advice they have—or any advice they received from their moms—when they first got their period, for a chance to win a $1,000 gift card.

And here's a bonus: if you share the advice you received on Twitter to @PlaytexGG, using the #PlayOn hash-tag, you can win a $100 gift card from me, thanks to my friends at Playtex.

All you have to do is send out a tweet with your advice and leave me a comment here and I'll pick a winner randomly on November 23rd, 2012. It's that simple! Share your advice—funny, wise, ridiculous—on Twitter, to @PlaytexGG, leave me a comment below telling me you did, and voila, you could win $100! You can tweet once a day, too, until November 22nd, 2012.

Good Luck!
