Mother Documents Daughter's Search for Tampons, Shares Epic Text Exchange

by at .

Belinda Hankins has a 13-year old daughter who recently tried to purchase some tampons from a drug store.

That doesn't sound like the set-up for an epic text message exchange.

But trust us on this one.

Consider how Hankins teased the back-and-forth she had with her (very mature!) child prior to sharing it on the blog "Ninja Poodles."

"THIS was the highlight of my parenting week. Sending my 13-year-old daughter into the store for (whispers) "feminine hygiene products," and having the following text exchange.

"I died, she gave me life, I died again. And she drew an illustration, on the spot, ON HER PHONE, to drive her point home.

"#VaginaLasers #SMASHTHEPATRIARCHY #THEVAGINAZONE #GodILoveHer #IGotThePerfectKidForMe."

Don't tell us you aren't curious. It's worth repeating: this is a text message exchange between her mother and 13-year old daughter while the latter searches for tampons....

1. WHERE ARE THEY?

WHERE ARE THEY?
They should be near the condoms and lube, near. Just look harder...

2. KEEP LOOKING!

KEEP LOOKING!
Yes, stores make it difficult to find these products, but you must believe. They do exist. They are there.

3. VAGINAS ARE SECRET

VAGINAS ARE SECRET
Drug stores are doing their best to keep them a secret, too. Why? Because men are scared of vaginas.

4. VAGINA LASERS

VAGINA LASERS
Note to men around the world: these don't actually exist.

5. SMASH THE PATRIARCHY

SMASH THE PATRIARCHY
That's my girl!

6. THE VAGINA ZONE

THE VAGINA ZONE
Also, can you draw your mother a map of the store? You can? Amazing.

7. DO NOT ENTER

DO NOT ENTER
This Vagina Zone map feels worthy of a close-up. It was went, via phone, by a 13-year old girl to her mother. She's our new hero.

8. ON TO GELATO...

We adore this mother-daughter relationship. We're gonna need to read more about the Gelato Incident in the near future.
