Solo Littles

Not every Little has a Caregiver. And that lack of a Caregiver can be really hard on a Little. There’s a lot of content out there about how wonderful it is to have a Daddy, and our tender hearts often yearn for that protective, guiding hand in our lives.

But don’t fret! Being a Solo Little is an absolutely okay thing to be! There’s lots and lots of Littles out there who don’t have a Caregiver, and being a Solo Little can actually be a really wonderful experience!

As a Solo Little, you can do everything you would if you had a CG. I often give myself Little Space Weekends, and I make sure to do lots of the “big” prep beforehand. I’ll slice up fruits and veggies and keep them in the fridge. I’ll make sure I have meals I can make easily. I’ll be sure my Littlespace dishes are clean and that I have everything I need for a bath. Then when the weekend comes, I can just be extra Little and not have to worry. Hungry? There’s apple slices ready for me. Tired? I can have a nap.

Being a Solo Little can also teach you a lot about what you want in a Caregiver. There’s plenty of people out there who will draw you in only to hurt you when you find out they weren’t really interested in being a CG and only used you to feed their fetish for a while. Those people are BAD NEWS and you are a precious Little who deserves only the best.

And when you let yourself give you the best, you won’t take less from someone else.

So make yourself that mac and cheese. Watch that Disney movie with your favorite stuffie. Have a bubble bath. You don’t need anyone else to make that happen. You are an amazing, strong, resourceful person, and you can be wonderfully Little on your own!

Everyday Little – Socks

Heya! Fritter here with my first Topical Tuesday! Tuesdays, I’ll be trying to discuss a topic directly related to the CGl community. (Please note that when I say CGl, I’m encompassing a wide range of community abbreviations. CGl is just my preferred go-to.)

Being Little is something that brings comfort and joy to those who experience that particular headspace. And for me, it’s my favorite headspace to be in. Of course, I can’t always be at home in jammies and drowning in my plushie collection. I go to work, I handle chores, I pay bills, I run errands, etc. And for a lot of people, I think those types of things bring this feeling of being locked out of the Little headspace.

But it doesn’t have to be that way!

Cue: Everyday Little! These posts will focus on ways that I’ve found I can be Little in my every day life, even when I’m doing otherwise “big” things like my day job.

s-l1000Today I wanna talk about socks. Yes, socks! In reality, most people are never paying attention to the socks you’re wearing. And if you have close-toed shoes, that standard article of clothing is just begging for some secret Little-ing. Socks are a great way to bring that Little feeling into your everyday life.

It’s not even necessarily an unusual thing anymore. Loads of people wear fun or interesting socks, even with suits and ties. If you’re nervous about going too far at once, start by finding socks in some of your favorite colors – whether that’s bright primary colors or softer pastels. If you’re feeling more adventurous, check out socks with fun patterns or that feature your favorite animals. If you’re into geeky things, your sock choices are practically limitless! (I’m wearing bright yellow Pikachu socks today!)

With your super socks on, any time you want a bit of connection to your Little side, just take a peek down toward your shoes. Lift up your pant leg and enjoy the bright red fabric or those too-cute unicorns. I also find it to be a great mood boost if I’m in a long line or finding myself frustrated at work.

Just be careful – your sock collection may soon rival your stuffie collection!
