Ever since I got my period, I think about having kids when I get older. I even had a couple dreams about it!
“Getting your period signals a new era in a girl’s life. It’s normal for you to prepare yourself ‘psycologically’” say Jane V. MacCauley, family therapist and mental health educator. “These thoughts are part of a woman’s development.” Your mind is “projecting” into the future, which is common. Anything can trigger it. Ever had a crush on a boy and start imagining his last name with your first name? Same thing.
Just don’t confuse daydreaming with reality. You have many dreams to follow through on before you are ready for that one.
