My niece (who is living with us semi-permanently) just started menstruating.
I thought it might be cool to celebrate it with something to mark the occasion, but have gotten mixed reactions about it from the girls at work. Besides, so far, I've only been able to come up with a "girls' night out" at a fancy restaurant and don't know if that's just too lame to be memorable.
So, AskMe Ladies, what did your mom (or guardian) do when you got yours?
