She has also mentioned she's a bit worried about wearing a skirt to school. I was thinking of buying some short bike tights or something. Any ideas?

Also remember to tell her that like a PP said, leakages happen and she can just run them under the tap and pop her knickers straight in the washing machine and not have to leave them in her laundry basket.
I will also be giving DD a little diary so she can keep track of her period coming up every month.

Definite agree with making it a celebration and special. My mother made me feel embarassed and awkward about it (even asked how I knew I had my period lol). I definitely won't be doing that with my daughter

My mum got hers at 8 so thought i would be the same so when i was about 8 she saw this add in Womens Day to send away for lots of books and samples and got me those, so i knew what was coming when it did, i didn't get it till i was 13 and me and a friend who shares my Bday got it on the same day, so we could talk it through together.
My parents were very open about it all and we had had the s3x talk early on as my little sister had come home from school after being told my her friend what her mummy was doing!!
I agree with the going out for dinner just the two of you i wish my mum had done that instead of just giving me the books and expecting me to understand on my own. Make her feel super special it's a wonderful and special time in a little girls life.
Have fun tonight

I got my period at 11.
I wonder if there's a connection between the hormones we ingest these days (chickens etc) and how early girls seem to get their periods these days compared to the last generation...

I got mine young as well. My Mum bought me some books and that helped as well.
Can I also recommend you sign up and get her some free samples from the different pad sites (libragirl.com.au etc...just google free pad samples and they will come up). That way she can try a variety and the starter kits come with handy little leaflets as well.

We went out to dinner just the two of us. She loved it.
i also brought her Kaz Cooke's "Girls Stuff". And she thinks it's great. So informative but funny also.
i will definitely get some freebies, that's a great idea. And we also grabbed some of those small bike shorts and shes happy with that too.
Its been a long day but I think we got there! Thanks for the great advice. Not near as scary as it started out.
