🐻talk to them about what’s bothering them! you should aaaalways do this (if your little wants to talk about it, don’t force them to!) sometimes, you just need to get it out!!
🐻pull them into your lap and bounce them! daddy calls it “horsie” cause it feels like i’m riding a horse! it’ll make your baby giggle sooo fast
🐻bounce them while holding them! it’s like a real baby (not that we aren’t all real babies!!) it’s so soothing and soemtimes i fall asleep when daddy does it 😪
🐻tickle them! if your little is comfortable with it, tickling them is always a fast way to cheer your baby up!
🐻wrap them in their favourite blankie! soft blankies = eternal happiness
🐻make the voices for their stuffies! my daddy does this sometimes: hold their stuffies up to them or near them, and make the stuffie talk to them! have your little answer questions and give their stuffie hugs, too!
🐻cuddle them! this one is kind of a no-brainer, but i thought i’d add it anyway—cuddles always make me feel better 😇
🐻give them a bath! if you and your little are comfortable with it, baths are always super soothing. let them play with bath toys while you wash their hair and scrub their back! pro tip: tell them you’re washing the sadness away, that honestly works for me…i don’t know why
🐻play with them! tag, hide n seek, dollies, cars, colour..anything! it’ll definitely make your baby smile!
🐻sippies, pacis… prepare them a drink in their sippy cup or their favourite cup, pop a paci in their mouth or your thumb, and (if they use them) put them in their coziest diapers! then, to top it all off, put them in a onesie or your clothes! super comforting! sometimes i put baby lotion on on top of all this, it always makes me feel soooo little 😍
🐻play peek-a-boo or patty cake! it’ll make your baby feel too little to be sad hehe
🐻play their favourite song or video! there’s this one video/song called MitchiriNeko March that ALWAYS works. it’s also a great way to put me into littlespace 💗
🐻talk to them in your carer voice & baby talk them! i speak from experience, it literally always works when my daddy does this. he says things like “who’s daddy’s little girl?” and “hi baby!!!” (little me likes it when daddy is excited to see her) and “tell daddy what’s bothering you.” (in which he pulls me into his lap and cradles me)
🐻put them down for a nap! sometimes all we need is some sleep to feel better💗
🐻put on their favourite movie or show, or watch a new one with them! distracting them from what’s bothering them is sometimes the only thing that will work.
🐻play their favourite video game with them! once again, distraction = key
Lets say there is a group
of humans stuck in a room with no entertainment whatsoever and this
for a while. So what do humans do in a situation like this? We make
noise and we just don’t shut up. Whether it be talking, singing,
telling jokes, stories or even worse playing games. Sure it
could begin innocently with something like I spy with my little
eye…, but it soon could evolve into things like truth or dare, two
truths and a lie, would you rather or never have I ever. All of these
can end so badly, not to mention making the aliens question if were
even sane, depending on how far these so called games go. If
we can add some physical components like dice or cards into the mix
there is such a wide array of possible games that need a certain
sense of logic, luck and the ability to deceive others. And if
there is enough space the humans could possibly start playing tag or
hide and seek or when they’re inside and an alien comes into a game,
where all humans are perched somewhere on some sort of furniture and
xe ask what the humans are doing there, but the only answer they give
xem are the words “the floor is lava”, so xe backs out of the
room slowly leaving the humans to… whatever it is they’re
Basically all of our games have something to do with
learning something about each other, being able to deceive someone
better or even unconsciously train our children with stuff like tag
and hide and seek to be pursuit predators. If there is not a game
humans will invent one or make one up and the only things you know is
that the rules will be super weird and you possibly could get hurt -
especially if they decide they’re putting some sort of ball or other
playing equipment in the equation. Look at all of our games
on our planets and tell me that we aren’t going to be known as the
weirdos you never ever want to play with, because their games sound
super dangerous and at best questionably sane.
don’t interact if n/s/f/w (slightly n/s/f/w included)!
💒go on a picnic! it’s super cost-effective, and it’s a great way to spend time with your little!!
💒go to the park! you could watch your little play, or you could play with them! (i love it when daddy plays hide n seek and tag with me💗)
💒play dress up with them! my daddy never lets me, but i allllllways want to put makeup on him 😂
💒go to a pet store and look at all the cute animals! me and daddy actually did that today!! we looked at the kittens and i got to hold a bunny and 3 birds!! and one of the employees let us go in the back to pet the rescue dogs, my heart melted 😍
💒go rafting! i’m not sure how common it is in other places, but where i live, people go rafting on lakes and rivers all the time!! it would be a great chance to get outdoors with your little, while still having the privacy to treat them like the little baby they are 💗
💒go on adventure across your city/town! me and daddy did this on our one year anniversary. we took the train and bus all over the place!!! this can be both free or you can spend a little bit of money. me and daddy ended up spending $50 at a candy store but….hopefully those reading this will be smarter with their money 😂😂
💒finger paint together! your little can paint allllll the pretty pictures for you!!
💒go sight-seeing! educate your baby on all the mountains, monuments, rivers, and other scenery in your area!! (pro tip: if they like it, ask them to pronounce things like ‘mountain’ for you, that always makes me feel so smalllll)
💒go to a library and read a book to them! free books + reading to your little = a very happy, giggly baby💕
💒during the winter, take them to a park with a hill and go sledding! this is, of course, if you live in a place where it snows. if not, it can be substituted with rolling down the hill!
🍧go see a kid’s movie! seeing “kids” movies (i still watch them when i’m big) always makes me feel like daddy’s lil baby!!!
🍧go to a carnival/fair! something about them will always make a little go into littlespace…idk why
🍧the zoo! asking your baby to tell you what sounds the animals make or what animal they are will definitely make them feel suuuper little!!
🍧go to an arcade! these are sooooo fun, and you can basically pick your own price for them!
🍧go to a pottery…place? i don’t actually know what they’re called (i forgot) but you can make your own pottery stuffs and then paint them! it’s so much fun!!!!
🍧toy store! bring your little to a toy store and let them pick a toy(s) out!
🍧candy store! you’re not wasting money if you’re spending it on foooood….:3
【Japan Official Fanclub Magazine Vol.5】BTS My Biography – Jimin’s part
The middle school student who loves dancing became a member of BTS
My earliest memory is when I was 4 – 5 years old (nominal age) and we were moving to a new property nearby where we lived at the time. I held the rice cooker’s inner pot and helped my family to move. When I was a child, I loved to go outside to play with my hyungs and friends in the neighborhood every day. We often played football and hide & seek. Once I ran too far away and even ran to the nearby town (laughs).
In primary school, I loved to play with my friends. During the breaks, we often played football. Although I really liked drawing, I hated coloring. My future dreams changed constantly every day, I wanted to become a chef when I watched a cooking anime. When I watched ‘Galaxy Express 999’, I wanted to become the Galaxy Express’ driver, and I wanted to become a pirate when I watched ‘One Piece’.
I have a very good relationship with my young brothers, who’s 2 years younger. Sometimes, we play games together at home, or watch movies. I remember that we watched the anime ‘Dragon Balls’ and the movie ‘The Host’. We’re just like friends.
I got along with everyone in middle school. Although there’re 6 classes in my school, I pretty much knew everyone. I joined the football and table tennis clubs at school, I was happy every day back then.
I became interested in dancing during the 2nd grade of middle school. I used to go to practice punctually after school, and I started to attend a dance academy in 2010. I was also happy in the dance academy. Whenever I had time, I would go practice dance. I’ve also participated in big performances, but I was really nervous. Actually, even now sometimes I still get nervous when I stand on the stage.
A year before graduating from middle school, I started to think about attending an arts high school. I couldn’t even concentrate on studying when I was in the self-study room, I was worrying about “which high school should I attend? what do I want to do in the future…” While I was contemplating, I thought about having a job where I could stand on the stage. So, Busan Arts High school became my target. In dance majors, I wanted to learn dances that’s modern so I chose contemporary dance as my major. During high school, I spared no effort in dancing. At the time, my friends and I only knew dancing, we got together and practiced, messed around and then continued to practice. During high school, I also had to deal with the dance academy’s workload, but I worried about the tuition fees so I said: “I won’t attend the dance academy anymore.” However, the teacher said: “Jimin, you can attend even if you don’t pay.” The teacher took so much care of me, I wanted to repay the teacher so I practiced even harder. I learnt a lot under the guidance of the teacher. I’ve never thought about giving up dance, not even once.
During spring 2012, my middle school dance teacher contacted me so I auditioned and got accepted, then I decided to go to Seoul in May. The first member I met was Hobi hyung. Hyung welcomed me and said, “let’s work hard together!” Other members also came to talk to me, it just reminded me of the time when I arrived, I went to eat with everyone in the canteen. The happiest moment during the trainee life was when we eat and play together. I still have the amusement park ticket that we went together, I still carry that around in my wallet. It’s because it was the first time and first place that all of our members went together to play. So, it’s engraved on my memory. I’ve been carrying that ticket for about 5 years.
In Seoul, I got transferred to the same school as Taehyung. I was in Class 4 but Taehyung was in Class 2, the whole school knew Taehyung. Because Taehyung has a lot of friends so when he came to my class, he said to the students, “be nice to Jimin!” I’m really shy with strangers, but I gradually got close to my classmates thanks to Taehyung.
The most difficult part of the trainee life was the uncertainty of my future. I got anxious when I hear “you might get eliminated this time”, so I wanted to do my best with practicing. If I practiced until 3, 4am, I would sleep a bit and go practice singing at 6am for an hour and then go to school. This routine continued for about a year. At the time, I’ve never thought I could become a member of BTS, but I was chosen as a substitute member. The hyungs said: “we want to debut with Jimin”, and that became my strength. The feeling of wanting to debut with these hyungs grew stronger.
I was so excited when we debuted. The memories of when we had the showcase, we received a cake from our fans for the first time, after the showcase BTS members and staff members all cried, we went on music shows the next day, and Jin hyung cried. No matter how long it has been, I can’t forget those memories.
I don’t have anything new that I want to challenge in the future, I just want to challenge and see how far I can go with the things I’m doing now. I’m also diligently learning Japanese because I want to speak Japanese fluently!
i’m just,,, how nice would a 2017 festive day in the life be? the 2014 one was so cute, with so many fond stares and giggles and them decorating the tree and wrapping christmas presents and a sleepy dan revealing that they’ve been starting to wait for each other to wake before having breakfast and watching anime so thay they could do it together.
but a 2017 fditl would be even more domestic. there’s the new house and the new them. if 2014 was the start of their recovery, 2017 marks the beginning of a whole new chapter, one where they’re happier, healthier and more open to the idea of sharing a tiny bit of their love with us.
so picture this: the vlog starts with phil walking up to “dan’s” room to wake him up as per usual - but we don’t know where phil woke up, never mentions it, and maybe there’s a teeny tiny super subltle clue that phil was there too, maybe the straightner is on the floor?? we see it. they know we can see it. they leave it in the video anyway -. then they have breakfast and tiny bits of their lazy morning are filmed. then they go christmas tree hunting and this time they get a real tree because phil said he wanted one and the house is big enough and the smell is the delicious. we see them laugh and play hide and seek among the trees and try to scare each other off. we see the excitement painted all over their faces as they pay for the tree. then we see them in starbucks, getting a festive drink because it’s a tradition. they sit close to each other in the least crowded corner of the room and talk and laugh and tell us about their plans for the evening. they have to go shopping because neither of them have bought any presents yet. then they go back home and they set up the tree and make the house look festive and christmassy and they play some dumb boardgame while stuffing their mouths with popcorn and candies and the last thing we see is phil asleep on the couch and dan whining about how phil always does that and that he’s such a heavy sleeper that dan is either forced to let him sleep downstairs or threaten him to pick him up and carry him to bed. but he actually softly pokes phil’s cheek and gently pushes his shoulder until phil’s eyes open wide and dan says “time to go to bed, sleepyhead”.
She loved to fly, loved to feel the wind on her wings, loved looking at the land beneath her feet and the sky at her fingertips.
She loved her father, a man no one could thaw. But she did. She was his princess. She could make him smile, make him laugh and whisper. But only at night. And only when they were alone.
She loved her mother. She loved her mother’s hugs, enveloping her with her wings. She loved how her mother smelled, always like a fresh summers rain. She loved laughing with her, exploring the world with her and flying.
She loved her brother. He was older than her, always away, always for long periods of time. But when he came back he would spend every second of every day with her. He would read to her, dance with her, tell her stories, make her laugh and fly with her.
She loved her friends. She loved Mor, loved how she played with her hair and dressed her up and taught her all the bad words. She loved Azriel, loved to play hide and seek because he was the best. She loved Cassian, loved how he gave her a knife and told her “never hold the pointy ends.” And she loved Amren, loved how she could make the little woman smile, loved how she would always get a gift. She loved them all with everything she had inside of her.
She loved how they would make her laugh, would play with her and watch her when she flew. And they loved her too.
She was loved by the people of Velaris. They would say “Hi” to her on the streets. They would give her gifts even if it was not her birthday, include her in any game they played and watch her soar through the sky.
They thought they would get millennials with their princess. They thought they would watch her grow and smile and sing. Watch as she learned to fight, learned to defend, learned to live. They thought they would see her find a mate, get married, rule over them all. They thought they would see their Princess fly forever.
But they did not get this. Instead, she was killed.
And when the news was told, when the black banners flew from the homes. When she was brought through the town one last time before she was buried.
The only thing everyone saw was not how she looked as though she was sleeping. Not the flowers in her hair or her favorite dress she was in.
No, what the world saw was that their little princess had no wings.
At first, there was silence. Deafening, deafening silence.
