The Things My Mama Didn’t Talk About


This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Acorn + Poise. All thoughts are my own.

My mom didn’t really talk to me about things. The important things. My body, bodies in general, sex, periods, pads. We discussed virginity (don’t lose it!) and tampons (you could die if you use those!) She was old school, conservative and religious. The sad reality is I learned the bare minimum from her. And the rest I pieced together from teen magazines and those awkward sex education classes in school. I kinda remember something about watching a video in 5th grade. I made a promise to myself when I became a mother that I would tell my daughter everything. She could talk to me about anything. It was going to be awesome. And then I had not one but four sons. The Universe is funny like that sometimes. I still made it a point to over-communicate things with them. Promises are promises. Things they didn’t want to hear like periods and light bladder leakage (LBL). Especially with my future daughter-in-law just having my grandson about a month ago. What if her mom was like my mom and didn’t talk to her about things?! LBL might be taboo in her family but not ours. I didn’t want her to be embarrassed especially when I had done all that work with my son!

Dear Future Daughter-In-Law,

Welcome to motherhood + thank you for my beautiful grandbaby! Your body is a little different now and maybe you have a million questions, you can totally ask me. I’m here for you. I gotchu.




Do all the things this summer without having to worry about bladder leakage. Poise is specially designed for bladder leakage protection. I’m hooking you up with the info here so you don’t have to be in that feminine care aisle longer than you need to. What you gotta do is roll up to the aisle at Walmart and throw a package in your cart. All incognito with your groceries. Ninja status and done. Maximize your time and budget like that.
