Be the Cuteness with Pearl: No Waffling

Sometimes you just know. This tends to happen more often when you have feathers, however. Feathered beings are naturally very confident. They are also naturally very cute. This is not a coincidence. The moment an adorable feathered being tumbles out of their small oval-shaped escape pod and hears their first “oohs” and “ahhhs” of theContinue reading “Be the Cuteness with Pearl: No Waffling”

Be the Cuteness with Pearl: Dinner and a Show

As every very cute being knows, “cuteness” is its own language. All other explanations are optional. You can just show up, look very cute, and watch all the other beings rearrange themselves in line behind you. This is always convenient. Where it becomes especially convenient is when a choice delicacy appears. Everyone wants it. AndContinue reading “Be the Cuteness with Pearl: Dinner and a Show”

Be the Cuteness with Pearl: Nest for Success

As any manly manbird will tell you, nesting is not for amateurs. Nothing is, when there are ladybirds involved. Ladybirds can be particularly, well, particular, especially when it comes to their eggs. Only the poshest, softest, safest, most secure and private nesting site will do. And that nesting site must be manned by the fiercestContinue reading “Be the Cuteness with Pearl: Nest for Success”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Special Biscuits

Some days are tougher than others. Heck, some years are tougher than others. This is when we need small daily doses of brightness, goodness, sweetness, the most. Let’s say you wake up one morning and your entire small round feathery body has decided it is a good day to molt. You are not in theContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Special Biscuits”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Fluffy With a Side of Feathers

Spend much time in an interspecies flock and you will quickly notice something odd about your large featherless flock mates. They have a fascination with something called “the weather forecast.” Take your large featherless assistant, for instance. Hot, cold, sunny, not sunny, dark, light, windy, not windy – it is all equally interesting if youContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Fluffy With a Side of Feathers”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: A Song In Your Heart

Waking up for another whole day is not for amateurs. You just never know who might be waiting – or how hungry they may be feeling. But there are places to go, things to do and ladybirds to meet. So “up” it is….scared or not, prepared or not. The first thing you want to doContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: A Song In Your Heart”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Getting Creative

There is no such thing as an un-creative individual. In fact, have you ever noticed there isn’t even a word for a being who lacks creativity? This is because the word for that being is “lunch.” In other words, just surviving through the lunch rush can take some pretty fancy footwork. To get creative isContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Getting Creative”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: What Goes Down

Up is good. Up feels great. Everyone likes “up.” But then there is what comes next. Down. Down has fewer fans. Some outright foes. And more than a few frenemies. Yet “up” and “down” aren’t so different, in the sense that when you are down, well, you know what is coming next. That’s right. Up!Continue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: What Goes Down”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Be a Waffle Hero

Everyone needs a hero sometimes. But not everyone who needs a hero is equally good at letting others know. Some beings need extra encouragement to open up about the hard times. For instance, they might be the “strong and silent” type that struggles to ask for help. Or they might just not wear their emotionsContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Be a Waffle Hero”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Big Pancake Day

It is hard to keep a big-picture perspective sometimes. Especially when you wake up one day and discover you just got a heaping helping of very bad things delivered right to your doorstep. In times like these, it isn’t much comfort to know that everyone else got the same (awful, infectious, unwelcome) delivery. You justContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Big Pancake Day”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Nap Fiercely

Just as the small round blue and green planet you share with so many other beings has seasons, you also have seasons. It could even be said that “seasons happen.” Some seasons are cold and others are hot. Some seasons are long and some are short. Some seasons are for growing and some are forContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Nap Fiercely”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Molti-tasking

When you are a card-carrying member of the food chain o’ life, multi-tasking is just one of your many super powers. “Staying alive” is, of course, your number one super power. But this is not to steal limelight from your many other super powers, such as sleeping with one eye open, shrieking up to 123Continue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Molti-tasking”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Taking a Stand

Interspecies relationships can be complicated. There are lots of reasons why. One reason is the all-too-common tendency towards using labels. “Cutest.” “Hungriest.” “Loudest.” “Fiercest.” “Snooziest.” Sure, maybe you are the cutest flock member (this being self-evident, since you are also the only flock member who is covered in soft downy feathers). But this doesn’t mean youContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Taking a Stand”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: The Waffle Watcher

When you live in an interspecies flock, and you are all cooped up together because some (alleged) infectious particles have gotten loose and are on the lam, it is nice to find some hobbies you can all enjoy doing together. Take “watching,” for example. Many different species have something they enjoy watching. So you canContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: The Waffle Watcher”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Calling for Backup

Sometimes – and no matter how cute you might be – life just happens. You specifically ordered your day to go one way. It goes someplace else. As the flock “alpha,” of course you are not going to stand for this type of behavior. So you run after it. Shriek loudly at it. Give itContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Calling for Backup”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Love Makes the World Go Round

This world serves up so many lessons even on a daily basis. It can feel unrealistic – at best – to expect to learn them all. Here, the best strategy is to just concentrate on the most important lessons. For example: “round is good.” This is an easy one. Round is clearly the best shape,Continue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Love Makes the World Go Round”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Strike While the Waffle Iron Is Hot

The large featherless beings can have some very strange ideas about things. Take the word “waffling,” for instance. Your large featherless assistant uses this word in all kinds of odd ways. She seems to think it means “not being able to make up your mind.” You can tell because she frequently struggles from this veryContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Strike While the Waffle Iron Is Hot”
