This is something I thought of a while back. I was just reminded of it chatting with a friend and thought I would post it here, too.
Here's the premise. You are an AB, who has finally found your Mommy/Daddy/Parent of Choice. Ideally this means full time babydom and all that comes with it. Realistically though, this may not be the case. There are going to be certain compromises that need to be made.
For instance, say Baby doesn't want to give up Adult Privilege A. To get something you must give. If Baby wants to keep Privilege A, then action B must be done so the Parent doesn't feel cheated or otherwise put out by the demand.
To give a specific example:
Of all the adult privileges I risk losing in a full-time AB setup, the one I'd be most hesitant to give up is bedtimes. I chat with people online well into the night, and this would be a make-or-break to me. How do we compromise?
Depending on how it hurts the scenario, my Parent and I could still go through the bedtime ROUTINE (story/bottle/tucking in/etc) though I'd be under no obligation to go to sleep. There could also a rule that after bedtime Mommy or Daddy's duty is done until morning. Meaning that my bedtime bottle, bedtime diaper, etc, is it. If I'm given a bedtime diaper at 9 PM, and wet it by 9:05, I'm stuck in that diaper til morning.
What adult privileges would you most want to keep if you had to give them up? What would you be willing to do to be allowed to keep it?
Also, vice-versa, what parental duties would an AB parent most wish to avoid? Or what Babyish activities would he absolutely insist the AB perform? What would you offer to get your way?
Also, what other costs would be suitable for keeping a certain privilege besides what's initially posted?
