As a Daddy to an adult baby or little boy, you need to help create a safe space for him to explore his ‘little side’.
But sometimes you don’t need to look far for inspiration! One of the amazing things about being a Daddy is how often you’ll find yourself with a huge grin on your face as your little one shows you how creative he is.
Clues to a Little Personality
I was reminded of this when I saw photos posted by Babysaurusboy on Instagram. He’s taken his bedroom and turned it into a launch pad for his imagination!
He has all of his favourite plushies, a place to store his diapers, a diaper bag for his adventures ‘out and about’, and has even painted Eeyore above the doorway!
When a Daddy has such a creative little guy at his side, it’s not difficult to snuggle him and tell him some of the untold adventures of Pooh bear and Eeyore. Just look around: every corner holds inspiration.
And for Daddies who don’t live with their little ones, seeing how they organize their space at home can give a lot of clues to their personality.
Signs of a Little Boy
Now, your little guy may live with other people. And so he may keep certain things hidden. His diapers might be stored discretely under his bed. His pacifier might be tucked away in his backpack.
But look around: is there a plushy on the bed? Posters on the wall? What kind of colours do you see? Baby blues or bright reds?
Being a Daddy is a bit like being a detective! You can find lots of little hints about your baby boy’s personality in the space around him.
Maybe one day it will inspire you to decorate his nursery or little boy’s room in your own home. Or maybe seeing his room will help you to understand whether he’s more of a cuddly baby, or leans towards being a playful toddler.
What Would Daddy Learn from YOUR Room?
What about your room? If Daddy came to visit, what do you think he could learn by looking around?
Is your room “openly little”? If not, what signs might he notice that most people wouldn’t get? Is your room more boyish or babyish?
If there was one thing you could ADD to your room, what would it be?
I’m so inspired by how adult baby and little boys integrate their personalities into their living spaces. They remind me that there’s a lot of imagination, joy and comfort in how they integrate their ‘little’ personality into their lives.
I’d love to hear about your ‘little spaces’, whether it’s just a bunch of plushies on the bed or a full-blown nursery! (And hey, if you want to share photos, please e-mail them to me and maybe I can post them!)
