Mum mortified to find five-year-old daughter snacking on her tampon

Most of us have been there – mistaking a tampon in our bag or the like for a sweet.

While we become disappointedly aware that it’s just a sanitary product and not a delicious bit of chocolate, one five-year-old didn’t quite get it.

Mum Carly Cox was left in hysterics when she realised her little girl Evie had been chewing on a tampon.

Posting on Facebook group The Motherload, Carly, from Cambridge, wrote how she’d absent-mindedly agreed to let the youngster take out a treat from her bag.

When Evie asked for the ‘sweets in the orange wrapper’, Carly gave her permission to eat one, thinking it was a Twix bar.

But after the youngster said it didn’t taste like chocolate, Carly quickly turned to Evie only to see her chewing on the menstruation product.

The whole exchange tickled users on the Facebook group who couldn’t believe it.

In the post, she narrated the event saying how Evie led the exchange saying: ‘Mum can I eat one of those sweets in the orange wrapper’.

Carly then explained the rest of the conversation: ‘(Me thinking she meant a Twix): “Yes babe, sit at the table though”.

‘”Mum, how do I eat it?”.

‘”Like you do any chocolate, open it and bite it”.

‘”Mum, it doesn’t taste like chocolate”.’

Other parents could relate and said their youngsters had also mistook tampons and pads for other more fun things.

‘Mine thought they were sweets when they were younger,’ admitted one parent.

Another said: ‘[I] went upstairs when my lot were little to find sanitary pads all over the windows. They told me they were playing with aeroplanes.’

Some said the hilarious story left them howling.

Same.
