My mom is an avid scrap booker – in fact she has been designated the family historian. I was over at her place last night for dinner and was shuffling through some photos that she had sitting on her worktable. I came across one photo (black and white) that was dated 1963 on the back. The photo was of a young boy (I would say 3-4 years of age) that was wearing a t-shirt and a (rather huge) cloth diaper sans plastic pants. It seemed unusual given the time period to see a child that old still in diapers so I asked my mom (who knows I’m an AB) what the deal was. Turns out it was my uncle who at the time was indeed four years old. My grandmother (whom we call “the wicked witch of the east” for her evil leanings) had caught my uncle trying on his sister’s diapers, which despite the stories you read on the internet did not fit him. She was so angry that she took a bath towel and pinned it on him. She did not have a pair of plastic pants in his size so he just had to wear the towel while my grandmother took the picture, which she used from to time to humiliate him. My mother was rather angry that the photo still existed and tore it up on the spot, she stridently disagrees with the way my grandmother handled that situation. But it got me to thinking: is there a familial (that is to say genetic) connection within this lifestyle? I know it always comes down to nature vs. nurture and I am wondering if maybe for some of us, it is a little of both? What are your thoughts? Does anybody have siblings, cousins, or other relations that are into diapers or age play? As a side note, my uncle died in an accident when he was a teenager so I don’t if he was just experimenting of if he was a blooming AB/DL.
