I have a kind and sensitive husband that understands when I need to cry a little, or curl up in a ball and beg for ibuprofin. I am lucky like that. My sons are old enough to get it a little more too.
Ladies need to be alone sometimes. Sometimes our bodies hurt because we bleed every month when we are preparing to have a baby and one doesn't get made. We change and get ready for some things that never happen. And in this case, our bodies pay a little. But it is worth it. That is how I got you.
I have never been one to be too shy around my sons. If I don't teach them directly about women, who will? In the proper way? I am happy to play that part. Sometimes the teaching is direct, other times indirect. Whatever it takes.
