the new mothers

anonymous asked:

two of my pokemon, both male and same species, somehow has an egg between them. I checked and it looks like it's the same species with them which is weird because there is no female around where I'm at. they're making a nest for it. do I need to take it to the lost and found or, what do I do???

First, perform these steps:

1. Look about for a female, a trainer, or a breeder who may be searching for an egg. Humans are typically easier to find; as eggs are valuable to one’s team, a trainer who had lost an egg will usually be searching frantically for it. Wild pokémon are typically harder, as new mothers will shy away from human contact to avoid attracting attention and thus drawing predators to herself or the rest of her clutch. However, you can look around your neighborhood for any sign of a new nest. If you can find any identifying marks on your egg (patterns, for example), try to match that pattern with eggs you find in the wild. You can also look online to determine what the species of the egg is by searching for its pattern.

2. If you can’t find anyone on your own, assess the situation a little more closely. If one or both of your pokémon seem aggressive when you approach the egg, you may wish to consider keeping it and allowing him and his partner to complete their nest. It’s likely that the egg may be a rescue or may actually belong to one of your pokémon. Depending on your place of residence, one of your pokémon may have encountered a wild ditto or a stray female, or one partner may actually have been a ditto in a long-term Transform. Whatever the situation, it’s still a possibility that your pokémon have acquired the egg via perfectly natural means, if they haven’t simply adopted it themselves.

3. If your pokémon seem rather ambivalent to the egg and are simply constructing a nest because it’s the natural thing to do, consider taking the egg to your nearest pokémon center or breeding center—or at least inform either that you found an egg. If no one comes to claim the egg, allow your pokémon to take care of it and try to figure out based on the egg pattern what hatchling you should prepare for.

Best of luck, anonymous!


Meredith was perplexed by the two new screaming creatures her mother had brought home with her. She wasn’t pleased as they seemed to need a lot of attention.

Meredith looked at the two squirmy screamers and pointed to them as her dad knelt down in front of her.

Caleb: Meredith they are your new baby brothers! Do you like your little brothers?

Meredith: No!

Caleb: Oh…

Rapunzel was Raised to Not Show Physical Affection

We’ve all seen that Gothel makes Rapunzel come to her for hugs, but today I realized it goes deeper than that. Gothel doesn’t want Rapunzel showing physical affection unless she has been given specific permission. Opening her arms is that unspoken permission.

For example, towards the beginning, when she’s reminding Gothel that it’s her birthday tomorrow, she grabs her arm in exuberance. Gothel is put out and then pries Rapunzel’s hands off her arm, all the while pretending she doesn’t remember (or care) that her birthday - something Rapunzel is extremely excited about - is fast approaching.

She also uses Rapunzel’s need for physical affection, deliberately taunting and “teaching” her with it by pretending to offer it, then taking it away immediately.

The first bazzilionty times I saw this movie, I always assumed Rapunzel was relieved to see Gothel towards the end of Mother Knows Best just because she was scared.

But now I realize it’s not only because she’s scared, but because Gothel is now giving Rapunzel permission to seek the creature comfort of physical contact that she so desperately needs after the gamut of fear she’s run.

Eugene, on the other hand, starts showing physical affection as soon as he starts feeling any affection for Rapunzel at all. He uses it as a comfort. Yet Rapunzel keeps her hands to herself.

It continues when he gives her the little flag, touching the small of her back in an affectionate way. But her hands (and attention) are full at this moment.

In fact, the first time she realizes she’s touching him, and he’s touching her, and there’s affection and enjoyment buzzing between them, she’s the first to pull away.

She’s alarmed at first, then apologetic and sheepish. Sorry I was touching you, Eugene. And he politely takes a step back, tuned in to her discomfort and giving her a little more space.

But that is why the moment on the boat is so important, and why Rapunzel has the reaction she does.

In taking Rapunzel’s hand, out of the blue (as far as she can tell), it’s sending her a clear message that he feels the same about her that she does about him, and that physical affection is both alright and wanted. That he will seek out her attention in a way Gothel never has. And from this moment on, she touches him often, holding hands for the rest of the song, brushing his hair from his face as he lay dying, and never letting go of his head, even after he’d died in her arms. Not to mention kissing him when he lives again, holding hands on the balcony while they wait for her parents and end-of-movie smooching.

It has been said that for every person who “wakes up”, 1,700 more also “awaken”. Energy expands exponentially throughout the entire Universe. Know with absolute certainty that YOU are changing the very fabric of the cosmos. And you are essential to the evolution of absolutely everything.

An Orgy of Unnecessary Cruelty

The theme that unites all of Trump’s initiatives so far is their unnecessary cruelty.

1. His new budget comes down especially hard on the poor – imposing unprecedented cuts in low-income housing, job training, food assistance, legal services, help to distressed rural communities, nutrition for new mothers and their infants, funds to keep poor families warm, even “meals on wheels.”

These cuts come at a time when more American families are in poverty than ever before, including 1 in 5 children. 

Why is Trump doing this? To pay for the biggest hike in military spending since the 1980s. Yet the U.S. already spends more on its military than the next 7 biggest military budgets put together.

2. His plan to repeal and “replace” the Affordable Care Act will cause 14 million Americans to lose their health insurance next year, and 24 million by 2026.

Why is Trump doing this? To bestow $600 billion in tax breaks over the decade to wealthy Americans. This windfall comes at a time when the rich have accumulated more wealth than at any time in the nation’s history. 

The plan reduces the federal budget deficit by only $337 billion over the next ten years – a small fraction of the national debt, in exchange for an enormous amount of human hardship.

3. His ban on Syrian refugees and reduction by half in the total number of refugees admitted to the United States comes just when the world is experiencing the worst refugee crisis since World War II.

Why is Trump doing this? The ban does little or nothing to protect Americans from terrorism. No terrorist act in the United States has been perpetrated by a Syrian or by anyone from the six nations whose citizens are now banned from traveling to the United States. You have higher odds of being struck by lightening than dying from an immigrant terrorist attack.  

4. His dragnet roundup of undocumented immigrants is helter-skelter – including people who have been productive members of our society for decades, and young people who have been here since they were toddlers.

Why is Trump doing this? He has no compelling justification. Unemployment is down, crime is down, and we have fewer undocumented workers in the U.S. today than we did five years ago. 

Trump is embarking on an orgy of cruelty for absolutely no reason. This is morally repugnant. It violates every ideal this nation has ever cherished. We have a moral responsibility to stop it.
