Parenthood & BDSM: How to Incorporate Cg/l Into the Home [Part 5 of 10]

Hi Friends!

Good Morning, and a very happy Monday to you! A special hello to all of the new faces around here. *waves*!! It’s nice to have all of you here! πŸ™‚

Yesterday we went a bit deep, so today I thought I’d lighten things up a bit. πŸ˜‰ Today I’d like to discuss how to incorporate Cg/l into the home. For those new to the subject, Cg/l refers to the relationship dynamic of Caregiver and an Adult Little. There is a common misconception that as a parent, we must be “super serious” at all times. We must put on our “grown up face” and be in charge and in command at all hours of the day. But, from my experiences as both a proud Mama and a Little, I can easily keep control of my household while being silly, using my imagination, and letting my fun-loving side shine. Now, let’s dive into today’s topic.

I. Embrace Your Personal Style:Β 

I knew from an early age that my fashion taste was not the same as that of people my age. After having babies in my early 20’s, suddenly I was thrust into this expectation of “looking like a mom”. The people around me back then wanted me to wear “mom clothes”. But what does that even mean? Are there “dad clothes”? What exactly are “mom clothes”? To this day I’m still not sure. However, I figured out very quickly that matronly button up blouses and long skirts that came to my ankles was not my attire of choice! As an adult little and a parent, I walk a fine line between creative and fun, but also modest and appropriate.

Find a style that works for YOU. Embrace a style that truly fits your personality. Let your clothing reflect the type of Little that you want to be, day in and day out. Being married, having children, or any other obstacle should never derail you from expressing yourself how you wish in your clothing. YOU be the master of your personal style! Your children will appreciate you weaving in fun, kawaii fashion to express your Little side. Your partner will love seeing you wear clothing that makes you feel small from an over-sized hoodie (in which you can flap the sleeves around), to denim overalls that you can bounce around and feel 5 again. Whatever your fashion style is, do it! Life is short, so wear what makes you happy! πŸ™‚

II. Get Creative with Your Cooking:Β 

My kiddo is 11 now and she has yet to figure out that every time I make a “cute kids meal” for her, that secretly my Little side is doing back flips too. Of course that’s fine. she doesn’t need to know. My point is, getting creative with your meals is an easy way to weave being Little into the home. Don’t “just” make a pizza. Make a smiley face with the toppings! Cut up food and cook it on kebabs that are bite sized. Go all out and have a pancake topping bar for dinner one night. (You know that breakfast can be served at any meal of the day πŸ˜‰ ). Blend up a healthy smoothie and then stick it in a cup with a swirly straw. There are so many creative ways to take an ordinary dish and make it something that is perfect for littles.

If you’re struggling for ideas, don’t fret. I’ve got’chu, boo. πŸ˜‰ Try these kawaii “bundled up bagels” that are super simple to whip together. Or you can make these pita Christmas tree appetizers (that are so yummy all in thanks to guacamole!). But if you’re in a time crunch and you want to pull something together fast, it doesn’t get much easier than this kawaii Waffle Octopus recipe.

III. Embrace Your Imagination:Β 

I remember when my daughter turned to me and asked, “Mama, are fairies real?”. If I was like many adults out there, I would have said that no, they aren’t real. But I’m a Little, full of hopes and dreams. I see the magical in the mundane. I am fueled by all things colorful, glittery, and happy. Therefore, I said with a smile on my face, “you bet they’re real!”. And then we proceeded to pick out some books on fairies from the library. πŸ™‚ I’m not entirely sure why most adults lose their sense of imagination. Perhaps it’s because life can be difficult as an adult. As a child, we are naive to the pain and agony of the world. But as an adult, there is no one to shield us from the daily torrent of the world’s depressing news.

But I believe that even though we are adults we can still use our imagination! It isn’t gone. It just needs a bit of dusting off, that’s all. πŸ™‚ Your children will appreciate you taking an old broom and suddenly riding around the yard on your magical steed. (Or perhaps it’s a unicorn!). They will love seeing you make a wish on every dandelion and then blow the seeds off to scatter on the breeze. They will giggle with glee as you pull on thin socks and pretend to ice skate across the hardwood floors…. just like Queen Elsa did in “Frozen”. Tap into your imagination and suddenly you are in little space. It’s a beautiful way to weave your adult side, and little side together.

IV. Creating a Space in the Home That Speaks to Your Soul:Β

What do you see when you look at this image (above)? What does your eyes notice first? Do you notice the wooden, log cabin beams that connect nature both in and out of the home? Do you notice the simple, minimalist furniture? Or perhaps, the lack of clutter? This is an example of a minimalist log cabin home. As a minimalist, (save for my wardrobe), I thrive in environments that are tidy, clutter-free, and easy on the eyes. I’ve learned over time that as a Little, I have to make my home reflect what feels good on my soul.

Many times I have had Littles ask me if they need to wear diapers, sleep in a crib, or have a full blown nursery/playroom in order to be a Little. While you certainly can have all of those things, you don’t need to have any of them to be an adult little. It’s all about a state of mind. Being little begins by suspending your mind to feel small. You enter a head space in which you take on the behavior, tone, and feeling of being a child again. In our world, we call this age regression. But, let’s be honest here. You can’t slip into the head space if your environment is making you feel antsy, squeamish, or stressed out.

You need to create a home space that speaks to YOUR soul. Hang up posters that you love. Pull out those plushies to look at. (Don’t let the dog eat them!). Create that cozy book nook that you’ve always admired on Pinterest. Do what you need to do to create a space at home that fits your lifestyle. This is especially important if you have a family and/or children. You’ll want to create one corner of the home that is your “spot”. Or maybe you designate a “chair” that is just for you in the living room. The whole family will know that that is your chair and no one should sit on it. πŸ™‚ Do what feels right and let your creativity shine. You can easily be a Little in a “big me” pretty home.

Alright my friends, that’s it for this post. I hope you all enjoyed it. If you did, hit that like button and let me know. I hope you all have a very lovely Monday, and I will see you back here on the next post!

Much love,

~Kitten xx
