“Eat” the damn Play-doh cookies.
Slurp the invisible soup.
Pretend that they’re not causing grievous bodily harm as they “brush” your hair.
Always be serious when asked what you’d like for dinner, and never say something silly like rabbit soup. Because they will go get their stuffed one off the bed, put it in your best pot, and fill said pot with water. Then place it on your desk.
Greet their make believe friends and ask how their day was.
Always kiss the teddy bear goodnight. It has feelings too.
Always pretend to die when they shoot you.
If you are having a fake war with them and you shoot them and they say they can’t die because they are invincible, you don’t shoot them again, because they are invincible.
Yes, their drawing does look like a butterfly, not a bunch of jumbled up lines.
Them pounding on the piano is the best thing you have ever heard.

no but seriously it’s very important to a child’s development to not be shut down by parents and other caregivers

once when i was little i gave my mum a bowl full of buttons and she got really into pretending it was real food. when she asked me ‘is it soup?’, i turned around, and with the most disapproving glare just went ‘no. it’s buttons’.

Happy birthday, Gloria Anzaldúa!
We are happy to honor Gloria Anzaldúa.  Anzaldúa was a lesbian Chicana feminist of European and American Indian descent, born in Texas to parents of Mexican lineage.  This collection of identities informed her social theory and she is credited with articulating the importance of intersectionality, or the way in which multiple identities in a single individual inflect each other in powerful ways.  Two of her most famous works include This Bridge Called My Back, with Cherríe Moraga (1981) and Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza (1987).

If you’re feeling blue, drawing a picture of your favorite comfort food can cheer you up. A 2013 study showed that people who drew pictures of pizza and cupcakes had up to a 28% increase in their moods. Source
