This kid made sure to include his mom on her period while drawing a family portrait
A kid in Australia was tasked with drawing a family portrait, so he gave it his best go. And his best go turned out to be the cutest thing ever. The young boy included one very important detail in his drawing: his mom’s period. As hilarious as it is for a kid to literally draw his mom’s menstrual cycle, you can’t really blame him for being detailed.
So his mom, Penny Rohleder, did what any 2017 parent would do: She shared a picture of the drawing online for the world to see. Rohleder posted it to the Facebook wall of popular blogger Constance Hall, and Hall thought it was hilarious, because it is, so she reposted it to her followers. The photo has since received over 24,000 likes, because people obviously love a good period drawing.
It’s pretty fantastic that a child so young has an understanding of the female body’s natural processes.
Rohleder explained to the Daily Mail that she had pulmonary embolism in October 2016, and was put on blood thinning treatment that makes her periods “very, very bad.”
As for whether she should be proud or embarrassed, we say proud. Definitely proud.
