Parenting the parent

On an overnight stay with my parents, the people who bought me up, I happened to start explaining the difference between right and left to my toddler daughter. 

My dad helpfully (as he saw it) voiced his opinion that he thought my daughter was ‘a bit young to be learning about left and right.’ I held my tongue as I didn’t see the point in getting into a lengthy debate about child developmental milestones. He has raised his own two children (I’m one of them) and we are now adults in our thirties. 

My feeling though, is who decides at what age we can learn things? My daughter is already demonstrating quite well that she is capable of learning. She can say lots of words and string little sentences together. She feeds herself with her spoon and fork. In my mind, I see it wholly possible that she could learn the difference between right and left if it is explained to her. 

The difference between me and my dad (aside from the obvious gender/ age/ life -experience ones) is that I want my daughter to be enlightened. So I continually talk to her as we’re going about our day. I tell her what things are. I describe them. She is a sponge absorbing this information and she is learning and remembering information on a daily basis.

So whilst grandparents may have ‘been there and done that’ decades ago with their own children, parenting responsibility lies with the person raising the child/ren. I’ve decided my daughter can learn and so I will explain as much as I can to her. It’s about making it accessible for her. I will learn the best way of communicating with her as I go along. 
But if you are ever a grandparent about to pass on some words of wisdom to your ‘child’ about how to bring up their own children, be mindful that we all have our own ways. And with hindsight did your approach work? Maybe it did for you at the time. What is more helpful though,is encouragement. A simple, ‘that’s great to teach about X or Y’ is more welcome than your opinion on the matter. 

Thank you for reading my thought for this day. Please comment if you have had similar experiences or wish to make a point (I won’t take offence at those differing from my own, it’s good to have various perspectives). 

Vote now for Bunny’s Wonderland in the Kinkly Sex Blogging Superheroes of 2017

Voting runs from 2nd-9th October 2017

My blog Bunny’s Wonderland only started last December, but I am so proud of what I’ve achieved in the past 10 months. When I started, I was a complete novice. I still have much to learn, and I wish to create more content that readers will engage with and find informative, as well as entertaining.

Bunny’s Wonderland currently ranks at position 216. I’d love for it to make the cut into the top 100! To be considered for the top 100 spots, a blogger needs to have at least 5 independent votes. Sorry you cannot vote for the same blogger more than once.

Kinkly say that they “connect thousands of people to sex blogs across the web every month. And we’re damned proud of it. If you’ve ever read a good sex blog – whether to learn something, to connect with someone over a shared experience, or just to get off – you know how powerful that experience can be. (And if you haven’t read a good sex blog lately, um, hello?right here.)” *

Why should I vote?

Please do take a few minutes to vote, as each one counts. Blogging does take up a huge amount of time. As well as writing posts, there’s research into products and other blogging topics. Taking photos and editing them, maintaining blog security and backing up, then also updating links and blog-post content. It’s not a paid job, though affiliate links can earn us a small amount in commission. These funds are mostly put back into blogging, be it purchasing a new product, or a ‘Plug-In’ to help with the blogging process.

By voting you are saying you have confidence in your favourite bloggers, and in turn this will hopefully encourage more readers to look at their content.

Bloggers like to keep their readers informed and entertained, so they need some feedback from time to time. This is a great opportunity to provide meaningful feedback! Thanking you in advance for your vote. If you’ve already voted, then you are thanked too, you’re all awesome! xx

Room with a view

This is my sanctuary; a place I come to indulge myself in my carnal desires. The room is opulent with heavy velvet brocade drapes, a sleigh bed with a faux fur throw and satin sheets. All deep colours, with glittering embellishments. My mirrored wardrobes hide the objects of my gratification. Exquisite blown glass sculptures in an array of designs and colours. A rather fanciful display behind their illuminated windows, within the recesses of my Aladdin’s cave of delight.

The room has another expanse of glass on the wall opposite the bed. I cannot see what is behind the glass. But I get a magnificent reflection of the room in all its splendour. A crystal chandelier hangs over my bed, and the light beams through each crystal creating prism arcs of colour. I call the glass on the wall my looking glass, as it contains a hidden secret. On the other side of the glass is a discreet room, opulent but manly, with wooden coffee table and dark leather sofas.

That other room is an observation room you see. It is where guests can enter, and choose an outfit for me to wear. I will get dressed in the satin corsetry or lacy basque that has been chosen. Perch my voluptuous derrière on a velveteen foot stall at the end of my bed. Then draw up fresh nylon stockings or thigh highs. Put on my sexy heels and admire my reflection in the looking glass, before I take to my bed.

On that magnificent sleigh, I will run my dainty hands over my creamy breasts, down my torso and across my hips. Caressing my inner thighs, I will part my legs and expose my flowering inner folds. Then as my guest watches on, I will use whichever glass phallus has piqued my carnal interest. It will enter my warm moist hole, sliding in and out as I writhe with pleasure on my bed.

I will be looking at my voyeur, without seeing him, and he will be working his own phallus in his hands. Both seeking our pleasure and climactic release we will work in unison until there is a tide of primal lust exploding from within our centres. We may even simultaneously cum…that will be his treat alone to enjoy. I have no knowledge who is there after all. I merely delight in my own little private show reflecting back at me.
