Q: No. 6
Hi Anjelita Foxglove!
I’ve been into DDLG for a bit but I finally have my first Daddy! I was wondering how I can find out my age? Sometimes I feel little and sometimes I feel middle? I’m not sure.
Good morning, Mili Madan!
Thank you so much for your email! I’m Anjelita, and I will be answering your question!
We have a fun little online quiz you can take, but in general, you don’t need to have a specific age. You can have a range – you can be a little sometimes and a middle sometimes. You do not have to limit yourself. However, I can help you to narrow it down!
The best way to figure out your age is to think of things that children might do or enjoy at that age. Dare you not very vocal in your space? Do you like onesies, sensory cubes, sucking your thumb, pacifiers and adult bottles, lullabies, maybe even diapers? This might make you a younger age (infant to toddler <1-3 years old).
If you like colouring with crayons (and maybe even colour inside the lines), are more vocal and use words more effectively, like frilly socks, are a little defiant or bratty, wear skirts, and maybe onesies for bedtime as opposed to wearing them all the time, perhaps if you like candy snacks and chicken nugget meals, and your favourite cartoons include Paw Patrol and anything MLP, you may be closer to preschool to kindergarten age – the 3-8 range.
If you are a little more defiant, enjoy music that isn’t as childish (less inclined to listen to nursery rhymes, etc.), like wearing oversized sweaters, graphic tees and sweaters, enjoy eating mac and cheese, burgers, candy, milkshakes, and prefer activities like playing video games, watching more developed and mature cartoons (for example, anime), bowling, roller skating, crafts and more refined arts, or things like that, you may be more suited for the middle space life (young teenagers – 12-16 years old).
Again, you do not have to put yourself in a box. You could be any mix of these things, and still feel little.
Being little or a middle is more about a mindset – being open to seeing the simpler things in life and enjoying them, satisfying your desire for wonder and to wander, and being cared for.
I hope that this helps you on your journey into DDLG!
