You know your child is growing up when...

My oldest child turned 10 this past September. This means things will be changing for her in the near future, and some things already have. I had to buy her her first stick of deodorant. Yes, she bathes regularly, but she was starting to smell a little off at the end of the day. I stayed away from antiperspirant, as that has aluminum in it, so at least now she will smell a little better. I guess I should really have the talk with her. I know later this year, the school will be discussing the change(we have a new sex ed/health curriculum this year), so maybe I will wait until after that. It's not something I am looking forward to.

I don't know anyone who looks forward to having "that talk" with their daughter but 10 seems about right these days. Kids are just maturing earlier. I agree with @platespinner that book is great. My daughters all had them for their girls when they reached the same age as your daughter.
