Mom’s son finds incredibly creative uses for her tampons

You never know what you’ll find in your kids’ bedroom, especially when a mom found out her son was putting a tampon to good use.

Tampons can certainly be very confusing. I have a notoriously bad memory, so I can’t really remember when I started using them. It was like I had always done it. Sure there was life before menstruation, but I’ll be damned if I can remember what that looked like. I’m also sure I must have tripped over my mom’s tampons or pads, but I mostly remember trying to sneak into the cave to catch episodes of it Real sex on HBO. It was a more interesting endeavor.

These days I use a menstrual disc and it has helped me in more ways than one. First and foremost, I love not spending money on tampons every month. Secondly, menstrual discs are far more comfortable than tampons, which always felt like I was driving the sword back into the stone. What I really like about tampons is their versatility, which one woman discovered after spotting one in her son’s room. Read on to find out what this little MacGyver did with his mom’s tampon.

If you miss a tampon, just check your son’s room.

Cassandra Johnson, who goes by @cassandrajohnson498 on TikTok, had just dropped her kids off at school and wanted to use her alone time to clean up when she discovered something unexpected in her son’s room. “Oh my God, you can’t stand this,” she said as she entered the immaculate bedroom.

I’m not kidding when I say this is one of the cleanest bedrooms I’ve ever seen, and I don’t mean it’s clean for a child. I have to assume she uploaded this TikTok after walking through this place with a can of Pledge and a pair of white gloves. Mary Poppins could never do it.

As someone who loves bells and whistles, I know the drama that comes with dusting off such an environment. You can try to avoid every little item on a shelf, but at the end of the day, if you want to be thorough, you have to move everything to a neutral location. I always use my mattress before putting on the new, clean sheets.

Cassandra pans across a room that looks more like a comic book store than a bedroom. Collectible action figures sit proudly on floating shelves, just waiting for a jerk like me to accidentally knock them over.

When Cassandra reaches the end of the shelf, we finally see what made her think. Her son’s Blue Beetle action figure stands proudly next to the Flash. He holds a weapon in his hand. But wait, why does the Blue Beetle’s club have a string at the end? Is this so he doesn’t lose it?

That’s right, Blue Beetle is holding an opened, unused tampon in his hand. The best part is the fact that the blue tampon matches Blue Beetle’s suit perfectly. No notes! We hope the tampon can properly absorb some blows from an enemy.

Parents have found worse things in their children’s bedrooms.

According to the Independent, a teenager’s bedroom can be the stuff of nightmares. I wouldn’t go alone. One woman found a Pringles tube filled with urine, while another found a mouse under her child’s bed, neatly hidden in a pile of discarded Twix wrappers. Have you ever heard of a double bed? Well, this is a Twix bed.

Apparently finding urine in strange places is the norm. I once dated someone who was addicted to online gambling. He sat in my room for days and played poker on the computer. When we separated, I found several water bottles filled with urine under my bed. To be clear, this was a grown man, not a teenager.

I suppose the point of the story is to teach your kids to clean up after themselves as quickly as possible. Not only will this help you avoid a potentially disturbing discovery, it’s also a useful skill that you can carry on into adulthood. After all, you potty trained them for a reason, and it wasn’t so they could pee in an empty Cup O’ Noodles container or something similar.
