Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I’m so excited for Halloween!!! Yes, it’s my favorite holiday, as I’m sure it’s the favorite holiday of many kids (and adults!) out there. So the big question, of course, is what are you going to be for Halloween? Do you have your costume yet? Did you buy it or make it? This year, Lily is dressing up as a queen, and I’ve narrowed down my Halloween costumes to a few choices. I hope you will help me choose! My ideas are:
- A cowboy
- An astronaut
- A football player
- A basketball player
- A soccer player
- A dog (This is Kwon Do’s pick!)
- A doctor (This is Dr. Duck Ling’s pick!)
- A nurse (This is Samantha’s pick!)
What do you think? The most important thing is that no matter what you dress up as this year, be sure to celebrate Halloween the right way. And that means being safe and having adults with you at all times. Don’t eat any candy that hasn’t been looked at by an adult, don’t walk around a neighborhood without an adult, and always use a flashlight when you’re out at night. The best way to enjoy Halloween is to be safe!
From all of us here at McPopper Children’s Hospital, have a Happy (and Safe) Halloween!
Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and we decided to do an early post this week to celebrate a really cool and interesting day. It’s Count Your Buttons Day! Yes, today’s the day when we should count the buttons on our different clothes and outfits. How many buttons can you count? The cool thing is that there are so many different kinds of buttons, all with different styles, colors, sizes, and materials. Some buttons are super-fancy and others are extremely plain. Some buttons are circular while others are rectangular or square. Some buttons hold clothes together while others are purely decorative.
What kinds of buttons do you like to wear? Be sure to let us know! And don’t forget, have a critterrific button-filled day!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having an awesome day. Or maybe I should really say that I hope you’re having a pawesome month, since October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month! Dogs enrich our lives in amazing ways (just ask Kwon Do!), and there are so many wonderful dogs in shelters who are in need of loving homes. If you or someone you know is looking to welcome a dog into his or her family, shelters are the place to go to find truly terrific and special dogs. Dogs have so much love to give and will change your life in more ways than you can imagine. Adopt a shelter dog today!
Do you have a dog? What’s his or her name? Be sure to give your dog a big hug today and every day.
Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having a great day! And speaking of great, we’d like to give a special thank you to all the E.R. nurses out there. They are truly great! This is the week when we get to honor E.R. nurses everywhere for all the hard work that they do each and every day. They are always there day and night helping people feel better, no matter what the problem is, big or small. They dedicate themselves to caring for others, and we are so grateful for all that they do. Max, the Hospital Critterz, and I are so excited to celebrate E.R. nurses everywhere and say…thanks!
Do you know an E.R. nurse? Be sure to give him or her a big hug this week! And don’t forget…have a critterrific day!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope your October is off to an awesome start! Did you know that October is known as Computer Learning Month? Technology and computers play such a huge role in so much that we do, whether you’re creating documents, searching online to learn fun facts, or even playing a game. Computers help us in so many different ways. In fact, we wouldn’t have this blog to be able to share our thoughts with all of you without computers! So there’s no better time to brush up on your computer and computing skills from simply learning to type faster or mastering an entirely new program. The possibilities are endless! Computers hold the key to so much information and fun. This is going to be a great month!
Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope your day is off to a great start. Cherry-Ot told me that coming up this Saturday, September 27th, is a very important day for rabbits like her. It’s International Rabbit Day! And it’s a day focusing on protecting and caring for rabbits who are in the wild and/or kept as pets. Sometimes people hunt rabbits and treat them cruelly, so this Saturday is a day dedicated to raising awareness for the proper treatment of rabbits. And in honor of International Rabbit Day, Beary Bruised and I came up with some rabbit-themed jokes that we hope you’ll enjoy.
What’s a rabbit’s favorite way to fly? On Southwest Harelines
What do you call a rabbit with a positive attitude? A hoptimist
What game do rabbits like to play? Hopscotch
What did the rabbit give to his rabbit fiancé? A 14 carrot ring.
And don’t forget…have a critterrific rabbit-loving day!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re staying cool in this big heat wave! It is so hot here in Kite Tree that we’ve barely gone outside except in the early morning hours and at night.
Want to know how to beat the heat? Here are some super cool tips to stay cool:
- Drink plenty of water…with extra ice!
- Wear clothing with lighter colors.
- Wear clothing made of cotton as it is cooler than many other fabrics.
- Spritz yourself with cool water.
- Wear a hat and don’t be afraid to dump water on yourself…it’s actually fun!
And if you do go outside, don’t forget to put on plenty of sunblock!
Bye for now!
