Somehow all my friends knew (I probably complained to them about it, loudly, and then wondered why everyone knew my business- ten year olds aren't the most logical creatures out there). When I went to middle school in sixth grade it was loads better. I was in school with eighth graders so getting my period was no longer super interesting or rare.
