in a blankie

5

one of my fave things is thinkin’ about what Sanrio mascots fictional characters would like… or which suit their personality best!

Noctis - Gudetama
Prompto - Keroppi
Ignis - Landry
Gladio - Badtz Maru

I was torn between PomPom Purin and Keroppi for Prompto but couldn’t figure out why? (Purin doesn’t suit him that well….) but then I realized– he does for baby Prompto! Prompom Purin~  (bonus!)

Help me feel little

Sometimes, even when I really wanna be little, I struggle to get into that head space. So I made a list of things that help me feel little, as a reference for caregivers.

- Tie my shoes for me

- Tell me I’m too little to do things

-  Put my paci in my mouth

- Use my little plates and silverware for meals and snacks

- Cut up bigger foods for me

- Order for me at restaurants

- Use my sippy cup for drinks

- Pick out my clothes for me

- Hold my hand when we’re out so I don’t get lost

- Bring me my blankie and teddy if I’m sad or sleepy

- Be silly with me in public when I’m feeling self conscious

- Play with me

- Read me story books

- Pick me up

- Tuck me in

- Push me on the swings

- Wait for me at the bottom of the slide

- Anything that can be more childish, get it for me (toothbrush, silverware, plates and bowls, bandaids, etc)

- Help me change out of my big person clothes and into my onesie

Brooklyn Nine-Nine to take on racial profiling with stop-and-frisk episode

Brooklyn Nine-Nine tends to take a light-hearted approach when it comes to the long arm of the law: After all, it’s a comedy in which Andy Samberg effuses lines like “Don’t worry, we can outsmart some small-town sheriff. We’re NYPD detectives. We caught the Son of Sam! Ice-T plays us on TV! We keep the Tonys safe!” But an upcoming episode is aiming to mine humor in a serious topic involving the police: Racial profiling via the controversial stop-and-frisk program, in which officers temporarily detain and search citizens for concealed weapons and illegal goods.

In an episode airing May 2 on Fox, Terry (Terry Crews) — a sergeant in the Nine-Nine — is subjected to a stop-and-frisk (which, coincidentally, is also known as a “Terry stop“) by an officer when he’s on the street looking for his daughter’s blankie. “He tries to work it out with the cop by going out to dinner with him, but that doesn’t work out, and he has to decide whether or not to file a formal complaint,” series co-creator Dan Goor tells EW. “To a certain extent, it’s the question of: Am I blue or am I black?”

It’s a subject matter that the show’s writers have been wanting to tackle for a long time, but “because our heroes are the police, it’s difficult to talk about the police in an abstract way,” says Goor. “We’ve talked about a million different stories and I think this one really works. It felt very natural and real, but at the same time, we’ve managed to make it as funny as any other Brooklyn Nine-Nine episode.”

The idea for the story stemmed from a conversation with Crews, who revealed a similar incident in which he had been racially profiled. The writers began working on an episode but were having trouble around the halfway mark. It was a conversation about the episode with a different cast member — Andre Braugher, a.k.a. Captain Holt — that led to a breakthrough moment. “Andre told me what he thought Captain Holt would do at that moment,” says Goor. “And it was like the clouds parted and I could see for the first time. It was so unexpected, but true to the character and honest, and made for an entire act’s worth of scenes.”

In the episode, after Terry hashes it out with other members of the Nine-Nine, “ultimately it comes down to a great set of scenes between Holt and [Terry],” says Goor. “It’s Andre at the height of Andre and Terry really keeps up with him. And it’s the first time we’ve done an A story for anyone other than Jake.”

Speaking of Jake (Samberg), he and Amy (Melissa Fumero) will spend most of the episode taking care of Terry’s twins with Sharon (Merrin Dungey) out of town. “They want to know why their dad was arrested, so Jake and Amy have to talk about these issues with these kids,” says Goor. “It’s one of the funniest stories we’ve done.”

Punishment No-No's 🚫

1. Taking away comfort items (pacis, stuffies, blankies, etc) You can take away something they enjoy (a game or toy) but never take away anything that keeps your little feelings safe and comfortable!
2. Yelling! It scares littles and they probably won’t actually hear what you say! (Firm eye contact and whispering usually gets the point across better anyhow!)
3. Excessive physical punishment! Anything past spankings or smacks on the wrist is a no no! Unless given permission, this crosses the line into abuse!
