2023.03.26 00:03 bbkidsncare 4 cách để bỏ bỉm ban đêm cho bé
| || | submitted by bbkidsncare to u/bbkidsncare [link] [comments]
Trẻ nhỏ từ khi sinh ra đã có thói quen mang tã bỉm hàng ngày. Tuy nhiên, khi tới độ tuổi nhất định các mẹ cần phải tập tháo bỉm cho con, nhưng mỗi lần tháo bỉm ra là ga giường lại ướt. Việc bỏ bỉm cho trẻ chúng ta cần phải mất một khoảng thời gian dài để cho bé làm quen, nhưng không phải cha mẹ nào cũng biết chính xác thời gian và cách thức thực hiện bỏ tã bỉm cho con mình đúng cách. Ở bài viết dưới đây BB Kids & Care
sẽ chia sẻ cho các mẹ bỉm sữa cách bỏ bỉm ban đêm cho bé
với 4 bước đơn giản như sau:
Khi nào tập bỏ bỉm cho bé nhà mình
Hầu hết các bé có độ tuổi từ 18-36 tháng đã có thể bỏ tã bỉm ra bởi vì lúc này trẻ đã bắt đầu học được cách chủ động trong việc đi vệ sinh. Tuy nhiên vẫn có một vài trường hợp bé tập bỏ bỉm ra muộn hơn, tầm khoảng 3 tuổi.
Vậy làm thế nào để nhận biết bé đã sẵn sàng bỏ bỉm hay chưa, các mẹ hãy chú ý vào những dấu hiệu dưới đây:
- Bé có thể tự đứng lên và ngồi xuống một cách dễ dàng và thuần thục.
- Bé hiểu được lời nói của mẹ, và thực hiện theo hướng dẫn mẹ chỉ dậy.
- Bé có thể nói ra được những mong muốn của mình liên quan đến việc đi vệ sinh hay một dấu hiệu riêng nào đó, biểu hiện cho việc bé muốn đi vệ sinh.
- Bé học được cách đi vệ sinh bằng bô
Cách tập bỏ bỉm ban đêm cho bé với 4 bước đơn giản như sau:
Bước 1: Chuẩn bị tinh thần cho bé
tập cho bé làm quen với việc không sử dụng bỉm
Trước khi đưa ra quyết định muốn bỏ bỉm cho bé, cha mẹ nên thông báo, giải thích đơn giản cho bé hiểu để tránh tình trạng gây hoang mang cho bé. Mẹ có thể cho bé làm quen với việc đi tè không có bỉm hay làm quen với nhà vệ sinh, thông qua các chương trình, hình ảnh dễ thương trên sách báo, tivi,…
Quá trình này nên được thực hiện thường xuyên khoảng 3- 5 ngày để cho bé làm quen. Trước khi đi ngủ, mẹ cũng nên dặn bé không nên đi tiểu trển giường, thay vào đó nếu có nhu cầu đi vệ sinh thì gọi mẹ.
Bước 2: Cho bé làm quen với việc đi bô
Đây là bước quan trọng nhất dẫn đến thành công của việc bỏ bỉm cho bé. Ở bước này, mục tiêu là giúp bé hình thành thói quen đi vệ sinh trước khi đi ngủ, tránh việc đái dầm hay phải thức dậy nhiều lần vào giữa đêm.
Để luyện cho bé ngồi bô tè trước khi đi ngủ, mẹ nên tập thói quen này trước cho bé vào các buổi trong ngày. Độ tuổi thích hợp để bé thực hành đi bằng bô đó chính là độ tuổi bé hơn 1 tuổi. Để ngồi bô thành thạo trung bình mỗi bé phải mất từ 1- 6 tháng làm quen để từ đó thành thạo đi vệ sinh bằng bô.
cho bé làm quen với việc đi bô
Các bước luyện tập ngồi bô trước khi loại bỏ bỉm ban đêm dành cho bé như sau
- Trước khi luyện tập ngồi bô, mẹ nên giải thích ngắn gọn cho bé về công dụng của việc đi bô, hãy dùng những từ ngữ đơn giản thường được dùng hàng ngày trong đời sống như đi tè, bô bô,…
- Mẹ có thể cho bé quan sát những bạn học nhỏ đang sử dụng bô khi có nhu cầu đi vệ sinh để bé quen dần.
- Hướng dẫn cho bé ngồi bô đúng cách khi đi vệ sinh vào một thời điểm nhất định trong ngày.
- Khuyến khích, cổ vũ cho bé khi bé đã thực hiện đúng bước khi đi vệ sinh bằng bô.
Lưu ý: Giai đoạn bỏ bỉm cho bé các mẹ cần phải kiên nhẫn và bé phải mất một khoảng thời gian dài, vậy nên các mẹ không nên quát mắng bé khi làm sai để tránh tình trạng bé hoảng sợ.
Bước 3: Bỏ hẳn bỉm cho bé
tập cho bé thói quen bỏ bỉm
Đây là bước cuối cùng để mẹ biết kết quả quá trình rèn luyện cho bé bỏ bỉm thành công hay không. Trước khi bắt đầu thực hiện quá trình bỏ bỉm , mẹ nên nhắc nhở các bé về việc đi tè trước khi ngủ, hoặc đi tè bằng bô tránh đi tè dầm trên ga giường. Nếu bé có dấu hiệu căng thẳng, mẹ nên khuyến khích bé, cổ vũ cho bé để tạo giúp bé lấy lại bình tĩnh và tự tin hơn.
Việc mới bỏ bỉm cho bé
vào ban đêm cũng không thể nào tránh được việc bé tè dầm nê ga giường, những lúc này các mẹ không nên quát mắng con, thay vào đó hãy dùng những từ ngữ nhe nhàng, nhắc nhở con để tránh tình trạng này xảy ra tiếp diễn. Và ngược lại với những đêm mà bé không tè dầm, mẹ nên khen ngợi và có những phần thưởng nho nhỏ dành cho con, cổ vũ cho con tiếp tục phát huy vào những lần sau.
Bước 4: Tiếp tục theo dõi đến khi bé tự đi tiểu thành thục
Khi các mẹ đã thực hiện thành công cách bỏ bỉm ban đêm cho bé thì vẫn nên quan sát các bé cho đến khi các bé thành thục tự đi tiểu. Bởi sẽ có một vài bé có thể quên đi thói quen đi tiểu nếu không được che mẹ nhắc nhở thường xuyên.
Nếu trong quá trình bỏ bỉm mà các bé vẫn xảy ra tình trạng tè dầm, thì các mẹ cũng không cần quá lo lắng. Bởi đây là tình trạng phổ biến thường thấy của trẻ nhỏ. Các thống kế vê bé cho rằng bé vẫn xảy ra tình trnagj tè dầm ban đêm cho đến 5 tuổi, mặc dù đã học được thói quen đi tiểu. Vậy nên những trường hợp bé trên 6 tuổi mà vẫn không hình thành được cho bé thói quen đi tiểu thì cha mẹ nên đưa bé đến các cơ sở ý tế để được thăm khảo, đảm bảo sự phát triển khỏe mạnh của các bé nhá.
Thời gian bỏ bỉm của bé diễn ra nhanh hay chậm phụ thuộc vào sự hướng dẫn và hình thành thói quen từ người mẹ. Hi vọng với những thông tin trên, đã giúp cho được các mẹ biết thêm kiến thức về việc bỏ bỉm cho bé vào ban đêm. Chúc các mẹ thực hiện thành công!

2023.03.25 23:45 JadeCharmer my power isn’t increasing as much anymore what should i do?
2023.03.25 23:40 EdwardoSquidwardo123 I got Dana Snyder to sign my DVDs. He was a really cool guy to chat with.
2023.03.25 23:35 hanpnguyen13 My 2 cats started fighting when I introduced a 3rd cat.
I have 2 cats: Gao (2yrs old M) which I got first, and Banh (1yr old F) which I got second. They got along the very first day Banh arrived. I recently adopted a 3rd cat: Cha (2yrs old F) but this time, the other 2 wasn't a fan. Gao follows Cha a lot and they hiss at each other, but don't fight. Banh just minds her own space but hiss intensely at Cha if she's close. Now a couple hours ago, at 4am, Gao and Banh suddenly attacked each other, and one of them pissed themself? I think I made the mistake of letting Cha share the litterbox too early. Gao seems ok with it but I haven't seen Banh use the litterbox the whole day. Maybe this is how Gao got Cha's scent and Banh disliked it?
Should I completely separate Cha into another room with her own litterbox and food/water? Now Banh is hostile towards both other cats, should I separate her as well? My apartment only has 2 closed rooms, so I don't have enough to separate all 3 of them. What should I do? How do I make Banh not hostile toward Gao again?
- I'm not an experienced cat owner, I've had dogs before, but not cat. - Both Gao and Banh are completely ok with another pet before, my parents' dog, who visits once every week.
Thank you for your help.

2023.03.25 23:32 babybronco99 iPad Pro to replace laptop?
I currently have a Microsoft Surface Pro, and while I love the functionality of it being a tablet and a laptop, it is super buggy. I have to contact Microsoft almost every month to have them fix something that's wrong with it. For this reason, I've been considering replacing it with an iPad Pro. I don't really use my laptop for heavy duty things -- mostly just lesson planning with Google Docs, Slides, Sheets, etc. (I'm an elementary music teacher, if that helps at all.) Pretty much everything I do is via the internet OR I've checked and Apple has an app for whatever I need. I've had people tell me that replacing a laptop with an iPad is a terrible idea because you can't download all the same software, but I don't really use anything like that anyways.
With all of that being said, I come here with a few questions:
- Do you think the iPad Pro is capable of replacing my Microsoft Surface Pro since I don't plan on downloading a bunch of software?
- How's the battery life when using it throughout the day?
- How many gigs would you recommend?
- I've seen that Apple sells refurbished products. Are these reliable, or should I just wait until I can buy it brand new?
- Do you have any other advice?
This is all coming from someone who has been out of the Apple world for a few years and isn't the most tech-savvy, so I'm sorry if these are silly questions. I greatly appreciate any and all help!

2023.03.25 23:14 raydeep 27 [M4F] Toronto/Canada - Let’s get lost in each other?
Hey, my name is Ray!
So like all the other amazing people here, what I am basically looking for is a partner. I want to build a world together with you! I would love to tell you all my silly jokes, shares my even sillier memes, talk about deep philosophical stuff which will make people wonder if we are high or something, laugh together, cry together, vent about our annoying boss together! So basically someone to emotionally connect with!
Somethings I really love would be going on nice peaceful drives, music, movies, hiking, video games, reading, board games, writing and all that basic average dude stuff.
I would consider myself very patient and caring so not only for the laughter but I would want to be there for you when you are at your lowest as well. I want us to lift each other up, to support each other, be there when either one of us is down and also be together when things are good! So basically you know be that missing piece of each other’s jigsaw puzzle! I also like jigsaw puzzles! They are fun :)
So if this is something that interest you then just slide right into my DMs! Looking forward to hearing from you! :)

2023.03.25 23:14 SerkyanRoseblaze Build Theory: Fighter's Finesse Scimitar wielder
As title suggest, I'm going to try a build with Fighter's Finesse that uses Scimitars.
Why bother? Cause I created a whole headcanon for the character and he isn't the strongest fighter, but still very deadly. Anyway
Stat spread at creation:
Half-Elf (Persuasion as racial)
10 Str 18 Dex (+2 Bonus goes here) 14 Con 14 Int 10 Wis 14 Cha
The intent was to go Legend, so that's 10 extra points, so I didn't keep any odd numbers. Now I'm thinking of going Azata all the way through.
First level is Rogue (Master of All), then 6 in Fighter (Mutation Warrior) to get the necessary feats, then back to Rogue the rest of the way.
So...any suggestions? No pajama tanking tips please, I don't like it very much.

2023.03.25 23:11 Morzo_Voidmaster [FN] A Cretaceous Fairy Tale
In the Late Cretaceous of a fairy tale world much like our own live critters, familiar yet strange. Dinosaurs and mammals kill and die like animals, but think and speak like men. One devours the other, but might chat a bit before. In this society of physiological unequals, the mammals form the downtrodden. And, like in our world, where there are downtrodden, there is music.
Subtropical forest covers what will someday be New Jersey. A hollow earthen mound four meters high and twelve across nestles among the flowering trees. A sign sits out front announcing the mound's name, The Dugout, and purpose, as a venue for bands. Inside lies an elevated stage lit by torches and a skylight and fronted by six logs for seating. The seats are quickly filling up with dozens of mammals of various sizes and diets. On stage are four didelphodons, mammals of contemporarily large size.
The stage mammals are each nearly a meter long from the top of their head to the tip of their tail. Right now, they stand like men, eighty centimeter tall men. Three brothers and a sister, they are both siblings and bandmates. One brother, Eddy, is the singer for the band and the star of our tale.
Eddy is the youngest and the shortest but has a voice that could make a T-Rex swoon. A crop of long blonde hair sits atop his head, contrasting his otherwise brown fur. His clawed hands pluck and tune an acoustic guitar of exceptional quality. On its back are inscribed these words, "For our little rock star, Eddy, love Mom and Dad."
Eddy looks around at the other members of the band.
There is his brother Tommy, their lead guitarist and second oldest. He wears both a bandana and a bad attitude but Eddy knows the kindness and patience he can show when giving a guitar lesson.
His brother Sparky, their drummer and second youngest, gnaws on his sticks with a crazed look and spiky hair. After all these years, he is still charged with energy from the lightning strike.
His sister Lucy, their bass player and oldest sibling, stands nearest. Her flowing blonde hair hides her face but he knows she is always watching. She has been the siblings' rock ever since Mom and Dad's death.
All six logs are filled to the brim, a crowd of nearly a hundred. A full moon hangs in the meter-wide skylight. Eddy steps forward to the wooden funnel which serves as a microphone.
"Thank you all for coming out tonight," he says. "We have some great music ahead, but first let me introduce you to the band. There's my brother, Tommy, my brother, Sparky, and my dear sister, Lucy. Together, we are Bad Litter!"
Eddy then steps back for a second, closes his eyes and imagines the faces of his parents.
"Mom, Dad," he says, "if you're watching from heaven, I love you."
Then, he begins to sing:
"When the sun comes out, and I see you there. My heart begins, to burn again. In this big world, it's just you and me. With you at my side, I'll always be free—"
"Dryptosaur," screams someone from the crowd as a shadow passes across the stage. Perching in the skylight, blocking the full moon, is a five meter long raptor-like dinosaur with a red and white coat of feathers indicative of a female.
Eddy stops singing. Tommy and Lucy stop playing. Sparky, slow to the uptake, keeps banging his drums. The dryptosaur puts an end to it by crushing him with one taloned foot.
Tommy, never quick to anger, charges at his brother's killer and strikes the dryptosaur on the shin with his guitar. The guitar breaks at the neck. The dryptosaur breaks Tommy's neck.
Lucy shields Eddy behind her, determined to protect her youngest and only remaining brother. His eyes transfix on her long hair as he watches her rise into the air by way of the dryptosaur's clawed hand.
With the other hand, the dryptosaur casually snaps Lucy's neck. Her struggling stops and her body becomes as limp as her hair. Then into the jaws of death she goes. Crunch. Crunch. Crunch.
The dryptosaur sits down on the stage beside Eddy, her collossal legs stretching out to the third row of the now empty seats.
"Hey," she says.
Eddy says nothing.
"That's okay, I understand, you've been through a very traumatic experience. We'll have plenty of time for conversation later."
With bloodstained fingers she pulls Eddy to her side.
"Congratulations, Eddy, you just enrolled in my school of life."
The sun rises over the forest, its rays poking through the dense foliage to pattern the ground. Bad Litter's devourer slumbers on a pile of fallen leaves, her head tucked into her arms and her tail wrapped around her whole. A beam of light prods her eye and she wakes with a yawn.
Not seeing Eddy anywhere, she briefly panics before remembering that she is sitting on him, gently, like an egg, so way he cannot escape.
"Sorry if it was a little hard to breathe," she says, "I haven't incubated in years."
Eddy lies face up and spread out. He takes one, deep, grateful breath but is otherwise stoic.
"I wish I'd suffocated," he says at last.
"Poor Eddy," says the dryptosaur, peeling him from the ground and cradling him in her arms. "What misfortune has befallen you? No, wait, I remember."
She laughs in Eddy's face, but loosens her grip enough for him to fall back onto the ground.
"What do you want from me?," says Eddy.
"Your company. I have business to take care of in the Appalachian Mountains. It's a five day journey and I could use some entertainment."
"Then play with yourself."
"I'd much rather play with you. Really, what happened to the little song rat from last night?"
"He died with his band," growls Eddy.
"Well," she growls mockingly, "whomever I'm speaking to currently should get ready to set out."
"You expect me to travel with a stranger who murdered everyone I love?"
"Stranger? That's right, I never properly introduced myself. My name's Tava."
A pause ensued as she obviously wanted him to ask what "Tava" meant.
"What does that—"
"I'm glad you asked Eddy. The name is Tave 'cause I'm hot like lava (tsss). Just replace the 'l' with a capital 'T.'"
Tava pinches Eddy's cheeks and moulds them like putty.
"Say it with me, Tah-vah."
"Trrr-vrrr," says Eddy.
"Close enough. Let's go."
Eddy's guitar sits in its case at the trunk of a nearby tree. Eddy shuffles over to grab it as Tava starts along the path. By the time he has the case in hand, she is ten meters away—far enough for an escape. In a flash of action he drops the guitar case and sprints away on all-fours. He gets some distance before a shadow blots out the sun and a feathered tail slaps him down.
"Eddy," says Tava, now holding him to the ground with one hand, "how could you attempt an escape without your guitar?
Tava opens the case and picks up the guitar with her other hand. Held between her thumb and forefinger, the instrument looks like it is meant for a doll.
"What a work of craftsmanship," says Tava. " And look, something's written on the back. 'For our little rockstar, Eddy. Love Mom and Dad.' How sweet. Maybe you can take me to see them once my business in the Appalachians has concluded."
"They're both dead," says Eddy.
"Any other relatives?"
"I'm all that's left."
"A one-of-a-kind treasure! And I will treasure you."
Tava retracts her grip on Eddy but presses her snout into him. Her yellow eyes drill yet further.
"Don't even think about escaping," she says. "I'm faster, I'm stronger, and, most importantly, I'm smarter than you."
Tava recedes to let oxygen refill Eddy's lungs before clasping him again in her free claw. She places him in the valley between her neck and arch of her back.
"I'll tote you for a while. You know, as a favor. After all, what are friends for?"
Eddy does not answer, nor does he speak much over the next three days. He and his guitar are mere passengers on a walking, feathered prison. He dismounts only to eat, a terrible process in which Tava forces bugs and water down his throat, and sleep, again with her sitting on him like an egg.
The scenery changes throughout the third day from a coastal forest to one more suited to hills. Trees are more spaced out, undergrowth lessens and streams cut ravines several times deeper than Tava is tall. Eddy begins to have morbid daydreams in which Tava slips and he falls off into a ravine, hitting head first onto a boulder strewn streambed.
His daydream stops when they encounter a large duck-billed dinosaur blocking their path. The creature is a sessile herbivore and there are many other paths, but Tava is in a fighting mood.
"Move your ass duckface!," she yells.
"There are plenty of other routes around me," responds Duckface in speech garbled by a mouth full of leaves and stems.
"But I like this one. Remove yourself or I'll remove you, one piece at a time."
Duckface's tail swings at Tava. She dodges but flings Eddy and his guitar case in the process. Tava leaps about before finally tricking Duckface into headbutting a tree and knocking himself unconscious. Tava grabs Eddy and his guitar and passes through.
The encounter makes Tava cheerful and keeps her so into the night. Instead of smothering Eddy, she decides to sleep on her back and let him rest on her heaving chest.
"The moon is starting to wane," says Tava. "Pretty soon the stars will practically explode out of the black sky. Some see pictures in the stars, caricatures of creatures drawn onto the sky. Would you like me to show you?"
Eddy moans lowly.
"I'll list them then," she continues. "There's the raptor, the rat, the fish, the seabird, the crocodile, the caterpillar. It's all a fantasy to make life more than it is, to project ourselves onto an immensity we cannot know. I hope you're turning this rant into a song. Hey!"
Tava grabs Eddy who curls tighter. She then pries him open and flattens him out. Tears and snot reflect on his face in the moonlight.
"Why?," says Eddy.
"Why what, dear?"
"Why do you torture me?"
"Isn't it obvious? Because you were born weak and I strong. Because life is torture."
"No, no," he says, shaking his head, "life is beautiful."
"You of all people should know better than that."
"Life can be ugly but can also be love, and family, and music, and—"
"Enough! Let me tell you about life, my delusional little friend. Life, for all creatures, is the struggle not to starve, to consume anything and anyone you can fit in your mouth and swallow without choking. We are but walking digestive tracts, gnashing teeth on one end and excreting waste out the other."
Eddy curls back up and begins to whimper.
"You'll see soon enough," says Tava, rubbing her gurgling stomach.
Night turns into day accompanied by the chirping conversations of treetop birds. The ancestors of orchids bloom all around. Eddy sits a few meters from a stream with his guitar in hand. He carefully replaces a broken string then tunes the whole guitar. Tava, who had "a matter to attend to," emerges from the bushes.
"I had feared that our little rumble might have ruined your guitar," she says. "I underestimated your talents."
Eddy remains silent.
"How about a song to celebrate its repair."
"Sing away," says Eddy
"Stoicism is the enemy of musicians everywhere. But I have the cure. Get up and follow me."
Eddy follows Tava into the underbrush.
"I think you'll like what I've cooked up," she says. "I'm surprised that it took this long, but I suppose I'm not young anymore."
Eddy and Tava come to a small clearing with something steaming at its center. As he looks closer, a red bandana becomes visible. His face contorts into a look of pure horror as he realizes what it is that he sees.
"The band is reunited!," says Tava.
"Oh that's right, it's also a family reunion too."
Tava leans over and shares Eddy's eye level.
"Do I spot a family resemblance?"
Tava walks away in a fit of laughter while Eddy collapses into tears.
On day five, Tava hikes through the ever thinner tree cover with Eddy and his guitar tied to her back with a piece of vine. She climbs atop a rock outcrop and spies three dryptosaurs standing near a pond a few hills over.
"Well, well," says Tava. "How would you like to go for a swim, Eddy?"
"I would like you to drown me," he responds.
"No can do, my macabre little friend. But I think I'll show you off to some admirers of mine. Get ready to sing."
Tava makes footfalls softer than the rustling of her feathers. She is mere meters away from the three dryptosaurs by the time they are aware of her. Smaller than Tava, their colored feathers distinguish them as males. Tava unties Eddy and his guitar case as the group ahead starts to run away.
"Don't bother," says Tava, "you know I'm twice as fast as any of you. Besides, I come in peace. Eddy, may I introduce my friends, Alexander, Montgomery, and Laurence."
"Don't think we forgot what you did to poor Laurence two months ago," says Alexander. "He still walks with a limp."
"It's true!," says Laurence, shrinking into himself.
"We're not your friends," says Alexander, "and you're not welcome here, Lucille."
"My name's Tava now."
"Tava?," says Alexander. "Let me guess, you changed the "l" in lava to a 'T.' Lava is hot so Tava is 'too hot.'"
"You're lucky I'm already pregnant, otherwise I'd give you a limp too, Alexander."
"Pregnant?," whispers Laurence.
"Then what do you want, Tah-vah?," says Alexander.
Tava holds Eddy out like a new toy, shaking him mildly.
Behold," she says, "my new song rat. Give them a sample Eddy."
"That couldn't be . . .," says Laurence.
"Would any of you be kind enough to kill me?," says Eddy in a monotone voice.
"A real vocal icon you have there," says Alexander. "Does he dance too? Perhaps the Stand-Still Boogie?"
Tava sets Eddy down and storms up to Alexander, who shrinks a little. Montgomery backs him up but Laurence slips away.
"Perhaps you'd like to dance," says Tava. "I'm proficient at the Bruised Danube."
Eddy looks up to find Laurence standing over him.
"I don't believe it," giggles Laurence, "you're Eddy, the lead singer of Bad Litter! I am a huge fan. W-where's the rest of the band?"
Eddy points to Tava.
"Shat out," he says.
Laurence looks at Tava then jerks his gaze away in horror.
"She, she, she ate them? But why did she leave you?"
"I don't know. I wish she hadn't. Could you kill me? I don't care to live anymore."
"Y-yes. Yes, of course, anything to help. But since you're the only surviving member, could you sign this t-shirt for me first?"
"If that's the price of relief, sure."
"Thank you so much. It really means a lot to have—"
"Get away from my pet, Laurence!"
Laurence turns to see Tava a nose length away. He grabs his t-shirt and runs away.
"Because you three were so rude," says Tava, "I'm not letting you hear a single note from my song rat."
Tava hangs Eddy over her shoulder like a rag and starts to walk away before turning her gaze back to the three dryptosaurs now huddling together for safety.
"But don't worry, boys, I'll be back to take what I want from you."
Eddy watches the three dryptosaurs shrink in his vision, knowing they might be his last chance at freedom, or at least the release of death. On Tava's back and in motionless despair, he rides into the mountains. Vegetation becomes scarce and bare rock erupts everywhere. The path winds through limestone which formed before either dinosaurs or mammals even arose.
The fifth day transitions into the sixth without Tava stopping for rest. She marches through the night under the light of a three-quarters moon. Eddy is able to take short naps because Tava is as soft as a feather bed and more than a match for anything that would want to harm him.
Eddy wakes to the sight of a blazing noon sun. Tava is kneeling on a granite plateau, holding her abdomen and screeching in pain.
"Oh, oh ho ho, right on time!," she says. "Get off, I could use some help."
Tava loosens the vine holding Eddy and his guitar case and both slide off her back. She then walks over to a pair of dry, dead bushes and snaps most of their branches off.
"What are you—," Eddy begins.
"Shut up. They're coming. Gotta build a nest."
She weaves the branches into a rough circle, collapses on top and pulls Eddy close.
"Now, keeyeeyeep your eye on the birdie."
A blood-soaked egg peeks through. Eddy places his hands on it, though remains baffled as to what Tava expects him to do. She enlightens him by giving a hard push and ejecting the egg on top of him. It is fifty centimeters long and weighs almost as much as Eddy.
"It's beautiful," he says.
"Glad you like it 'cause there're two more coming."
Sure enough, the process repeats twice more. Eddy corrals the triplets into a triangle.
"Yeah. It will make a good trade."
"Since we're so close I'll tell you. I made a deal with a monastery up ahead. I give them a child to raise, I get some sacred knowledge. Only one child is part of the deal, the other two are extras, just mouths I'll have to feed. Plus they're Laurence's. End their pathetic existence before they hatch into this hellhole of a world."
Eddy rolls one toward the edge of the plateau. It is a ten meter drop, more than enough to kill the unhatched dryptosaur. But he shakes his head and backs away.
"I can't kill a child, even yours."
"For God's sake, I don't have time for your moral bullshit."
Tava kicks the egg off the cliff and twists around to Eddy. Their eyes lock as the sound of cracking shell reverberates up.
"Poor Eddy," says Tava, "his conscience won't let him kill the offspring of his family's devourer. I'll raise the other spare if you like, raise it to eat only your kind. I and it will go back and swallow every one of your concert's audience. We'll shit them out and stick your nose in it."
"You can't shock me anymore."
Tava bares her teeth in full.
"Help me, Eddy," she says softly. "I'm still alive in here."
"What are you doing?"
"Reciting what your dear sister Lucy said as she slid down my throat."
"No, I watched you snap her neck before eating her. She was dead."
"That's what I thought too. But she was alive. I heard her inside of me. I felt her squirm."
"Liar!," screams Eddy.
He leaps at Tava who dodges easily. He gets up and tries again. This time she rolls onto her back and catches him between two toes. She flings him across the small plateau. He hits hard and suffers a broken nose. He slowly stands up but waves any new effort away. He looks at her with tear-filled eyes.
"Why won't you just kill me?," cries Eddy. "Please, please, please. Just let me join my family."
"Poor, delusional Eddy. I have no intention of killing you. You have and will provide me with entertainment. You'll be my prisoner for the rest of your natural life."
The monastery bell starts ringing. A bolt of lightning flashes behind Tava, turning her into a black silhouette.
"Back to the subject of your sister," she says, "Lucy was probably still conscious when she fell on top of her dead, digesting brothers."
Eddy launches himself at Tava, landing on her lowered face.
"That's right, Eddy! Go for the eyes!"
He tries to gnaw one of her eyes out. But she is still too quick and very much in control. The flick from a single finger knocks him off. He recovers in an instant and tackles her gut. It, of course, has little more effect than just sending him backwards.
"Now this is more like it. Where has this Eddy been the whole time?"
He ignores her and refocuses on a new target. A serpentine pattern gets him around Tava and to the two eggs. In an adrenaline-fueled feat of strength, he hoists it onto his back and runs toward the plateau's edge.
"Yes, yes, yes!," cheers Tava.
Eddy heaves the egg over the edge. Panting through gritted teeth, he runs back to grab the other one but Tava swats him down with her tail.
"That's enough destruction for now, my pet. We have an appointment to keep."
Eddy calms down. Tava allows him to walk beside her as she concentrates on carrying the egg.
A storm gathers in the distance as they walk into the monastery courtyard. Cloak-wearing monks of every species move calmly across the paving stones. Mammalians who would normally scatter at the sight of Tava take no precautions as their dinosaur brethren have sworn to defend them.
A single monk emerges from behind the bell. He is of Eddy's species but larger and at least three times as old.
"You have what we asked for?," says the monk.
"Right here, Elder," says Tava.
She places the egg on the ground and allows the Elder to inspect it with a tenderness its mother could never show.
"We thank you for the addition to our ranks," says the Elder. "I wish you peace and—"
"No games, I want my reward."
A stone tablet is brought to the Elder Monk who then hands it to Tava.
"That is the culmination of tens of millennia of observation and study by hundreds of generations of monks who dedicated their lives to—"
"I'm leaving but feel free to continue your monologue."
Eddy and Tava return to the rocky plateau where the last few rays of sunlight shine down. She reads the tablet aloud but Eddy does not comprehend.
"You don't understand the significance of what I'm reading, do you?," says Tava.
"Dig sites, cross-reference, live specimen; sounds like gibberish."
"It talks of a past world very different from our own and promises a future that is likewise."
"Things change, and saying so doesn't add anything."
"It's more than that. The world we live in is much much older than anyone realizes—millions of our lifetimes old. How many people have come and gone before us? A million million? A million million million? And for what purpose did they live and die?"
"To become someone's next meal."
"Yes! The boy learns at last! But that's just the past and present, there's still the future. Another million million million suffering and dying for nothing. To eat or be eaten, this is our fate forever and ever."
The rain starts coming down in large and heavy droplets. Eddy stares up with hate in his eyes.
"You're cruel, sadistic and beyond evil," says Eddy.
"Oh, Eddy, you do know how to flatter a girl. But am I not right?"
Eddy hangs his head. His tears mix with the downpour.
"It's about time you wised up. I ate your family in front of you, abused you in every way I could imagine. Honestly, you should be ashamed that it took this long."
"What should I do now?"
"Sing," says Tava caressing Eddy's chin with her forefinger.
Eddy breathes deeply ang begins:
"Here on the mountain, I am repentant. Resplendent in transcendent notion, that life is incident. Birth and death, ignorant to our animal sorrows. So conscience I set ablaze, and put away my hippy days."
"Splendid!," says Tava, nuzzling Eddy.
The thunderstorm dies down enough to hear the distant monastery bell ring its somber tone.
"Hear that, Eddy? It is our wedding bell. You're mine forever."
Tava and Eddy descend the eastern slopes of the Appalachians in half the time it took to get up them, not only because it is easier, or that Tava is no longer laden with eggs, but because she has won.
They reach the three dryptosaurs' pond in a day. Alexander, Montgomery and Laurence are nowhere to be found.
"Smell that air," says Tava, gulping down oxygen as if giving chase. "The weaker sex of my species has a certain revolting stench. If I hadn't needed that egg, I would never have touched Laurence."
Eddy giggles while making a snow angel in her feathers.
"It's too bad your reputation is now so tarnished," he says.
"Maybe not. The trio isn't likely to go around spreading Laurence's shame. We can kill them, easy, and eat the bodies. Have you ever had dryptosaur?"
"Would love to try it."
"I'll save you some breast meat, that's the juiciest part."
Small birds and mammals watching from the few trees climb to yet higher branches on hearing Tava and Eddy's awful plans.
"We have an audience," says Tava. "Why don't you pull out your guitar and play for them."
"Any requests?," says Eddy.
"Something morbid, I suppose. I really don't care. I'm taking a dip in the pond to wash off the blood still caked on my ass from the eggs."
"I'll make our audience fall from the trees in despair."
Tava submerges herself in the crystal clear water as Eddy tunes at his guitar to create a more melancholy sound. Something crashes into the nearby bushes and stops his work. A long feathered tail, caked in mud, now sticks out of the far side while a snout, also caked, pokes out near him.
"Psst," says the snout. "Over here. Come on, while she's busy."
Eddy, lacking any desire for self-preservation, stumbles into the bushes. There he finds Laurence, covered in mud from head to toe.
"Masking your scent was a good idea," says Eddy.
"I had to come back and save you," says Eddy.
"Because you're the voice of Bad Litter—"
"They're all dead if you haven't noticed."
"Sorry, sorry, sorry. I didn't mean to dig that sorrow back up."
"No sorrow. I accept the fate that our weakness brought on."
"Lucille's had nine uninterrupted days to mess with your head. That's more torture than anyone should receive. But come with me and I swear we'll reverse the damage."
"You know, Tava and I were just talking about you. Let me go get her."
Laurence turns Eddy back around. Though gentle, he still manages to take a chunk of the didelphodon's fur off. Laurence now sees how patchy his former idol's coat is, how bloodshot and crazy are his eyes, how little flesh clung to his bones. Eddy was a walking corpse.
"There's no saving you," whispers Laurence to himself.
Eddy's neck snaps even easier than Laurence had expected. The dryptosaur weeps as he wraps his idol's little body in the Bad Litter t-shirt and buries him in a hastily dug grave. Atop the dirt clods he lays Eddy's guitar so that "For our little rock star, Eddy, love Mom and Dad," faces upward and serves as epitaph.
"Go now," says Laurence, "be with your family in heaven."
Splashing water sounds Tava's emergence, but Laurence tiptoes away without raising her alarm. Ten minutes later and far away, he hears her roar in defeat.

2023.03.25 22:51 imasunnycupcake Friendship Thread: Top Dynamics/Favorite Moments/Most Popular Pairs/Underrated Duos
I know there have been other threads about this topic but the last one seems to have been from a while ago and a few episodes have dropped since then so let's do it again.
Here are some friendships I want to draw attention too.
My Top Dynamics:
Seo Won & Cha Woonggi - The are carrying the show on their backs when it comes to making viewers have a fun time, but I think the past few episodes have shown that their friendship is so much deeper than just a couple of goofballs goofing around.
Kim Gyuvin & Hui - The Dongpyo & Seungwoo of this season for sure. Hui is just always doting on Gyuvin. If they both make it into the debut group, I just know they're going to have an emotional moment during the finale like Seungpyo. Hearing about Gyuvin praising Hui for En Garde is already bringing me to tears although I haven't even seen the moment. Crazy how that one fortune teller also said they met at the right time, they were 100% right.
Seok Matthew & Kim Jiwoong - Once Bep1er debuts, I foresee Mattwoong becoming a staple ship in the fandom. They're really friendly and supportive with each other and honestly seem to have bonded so much over the second mission. It's also cute and funny how Matthew is the only trainee that doesn't get butterflies when he's with Jiwoong while Jiwoong seems to be more flirty with him than anyone else.
Han Yujin & Keita - I don't think MNET has given their friendship much screen time as they haven't performed together but Yujin holding Keita hand was really cute, and so was the time Keita went over to hug Yujin when he came to tell G-Group they'd share the food benefit.
Thoughts on The Most Popular Pairs:
Sung Hanbin & Zhang Hao - OMG their chemistry is fire! You'd think they would be a fanservice pair since they're the most popular K&G trainees respectively, but they genuinely seem to be happy in each other's company. Literally every eliminated trainee be telling us Haobin are close. Also, sorta off topic but don't they kind of have Hunhan energy? The way Hao said he wants to drink coke with Hanbin after they debut and the way Luhan & Sehun used to go get a certain drink together that the two of them really liked, they way Haobin have complimentary visuals and some people think they look a little alike like and the same used to be said about Hunhan.
Sung Hanbin & Seok Matthew - The besties! Lol at how Hanbin was able to answer the Matthew question perfectly during trivia.
Zhang Hao & Park Gunwook - I love them. It's cute how Hao basically adopted Gunwook.
Hui & Sung Hanbin - Every friendship involving Hanbin was bound to be popular lol. If Gyuvin is Hui's treasured baby, then Hanbin is his first born golden boy. Also, it's adorable how they're always clinging to each other.
Underrated Duos (That Might Not Have Been Underrated If MNET Gave Them Attention):
Chen Jianyu & Lee Seunghwan - Jianyu cheering for Seunghwan during the trivia was super sweet and they've been sticking to each other like magnets the past few episodes. I'll miss them.
Jung Mingyu & Hiroto - The Goofball + The Sarcastc King. Wish we could have seen more of them. Also cute how he attended the recent mission showcase and cheered for Hiroto.
Favorite Friendship Moments:
Won smiling when watching Woonggi perform Feel Special and then crying along with Woonggi and the rest of us during the 2nd elimination, and them running to hug each other when it was announced Woonggi was safe. And this beautiful friendship started from them just being their hyper selves and dancing together on the first day in the dorms.
Jiwoong cupping Matthew's face and smiling when it was announced Love Killa team would go to MCountdown. Jiwoong asking Matthew why he smiled when Gyuvin spoke English and not when he did and Matthew replying that it was because Gyuvin's English was good before Jiwoong playfully hit Matthew's leg. Just any moment between these two in general.
Jay being hyped when Kamden survived the 1st elimination and cheering for him by calling Kamden his Korean name Dubin during The Law team's performance. Jay being Kamden's biggest hype man only behind Kamden's father, himself.

This is part of an ongoing personal project to document all of my D&D character in the style of one of those old anime artbooks from the 90's/2000's. This is my first serious D&D character, a 4th Edition Swordmage (code)named The Stone.
I take commissions in this style over at my Ko-fi
, where you can select D&D characters in the dropdown. Aside from that, you can follow all my art pages @dmgurei on all socials.
