We are back with day 47 of little introspection and today we are discussing being a parent as well as a Little. For those of you who have been following along, you know that I have recently been writing about parenthood and being a part of the BDSM community. So if you missed those posts, go back and give them a read. Now, let’s dive into today’s topic. I feel like this is a no-brainer, but in short, yes you can be a parent and a Little. Now let’s dive in.
I. Being a Little is Still Being an Adult:
Many people often forget that the very cornerstone of a Cg/l relationship is still (or should be!) two legal adults having a consensual relationship. This means that although we regress in age during a play session, we are still adults biologically and mentally. We have adult lives. Most of us lead pretty vanilla lives with a dash of kinky sprinkles here and there. 😉 We can look like anything from adorable adult babies in diapers to precious tots wearing onesies and thigh high socks. But at the end of the day, all of us are still legal adults. This means that we might be married with children. We likely have day jobs that pull us away from little space, and therefore we do a balancing act between maintaining our adult responsibilities and scheduling time for little space.
II. Every Parent Needs a Mental Break:
I absolutely love being a Mom. My kiddo is the center of my world. That said, I still believe that every parent needs to have a break every now and then. We are “on” so often, that we often forget to nourish ourselves. Little space can be a great space for mental recuperation for parents who are also littles. Take the time to slip into little space after the kids are in bed, and allow your inner child to shine. Tell your dominant when you need time to mentally decompress and wish to slip into little space. If you’re a live-in D/s couple, this is easy to do. But I firmly believe that even long distance D/s couples can have successful play sessions that allow parents to relax and unwind. 🙂 (More on that in another post!).
III. You Can Be a Little at Any Age:
In other posts I have discussed how being a little and aging can go hand in hand. When it comes to being a Little, age is just a number. I hope to be a hip, wacky, old grandma one day still rock’in it to my own unique beat! 🙂 You can be a little forever. That said, there is no reason why an adult needs to stop normal adult milestones (such as having children and becoming a parent) just because they are a little. Enjoy life! Have children if you so desire. (Personally I think they are life’s greatest blessings 🙂 ). Live free, and love hard.
That’s it from me for this post, my friends. I know it was short. But I hope you enjoyed it. Have a wonderful rest of the day and I will see you all back here on the next post!
