Courtney sort of knows something about it as she asks me about my thermometer all the time, but she doesn't really know what it all means. I plan to introduce it all to her just when the time is right, when the questions come up, etc. I'm hoping her school will introduce it somewhat as well since as far as I'm concerned she'll be in a Catholic school, we haven't officially got her in one down here yet cuz they were having parent teacher confrences the day we were gunna go.
I definitely plan to teach them about their bodies around the time we talk about puberty/menstruation. I probably won't get into a lot of detail about sperm survival or the rules for avoiding/achieving pregnancy until they are older...but I think it would be helpful for them to keep a very basic chart to predict when their periods will come, since irregularity it pretty typical during the first few years of menstruation. Getting caught off guard as a teen was the worst!
