Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope your March is off to an awesome start! I’ve always liked the month of March because the first two letters are “M” and “A” just like my name. Plus, there are a lot of cool things that I learned about March, and I’m totally excited to share them with you:
The birthstone for March is aquamarine.
Ping & Pong and Day Z Girl told me that the birth flower for March is the daffodil.
March has a date called Pie Day…I mean Pi (the number) Day! March 14th reminds us of 3.14 which is the numerical equivalent of pi.
The month of March always starts on the same day of the week as the month of November…pretty sweet!
The famous poet Emily Dickinson wrote that, “March is the month of expectation, the things we do not know.” I wonder what March has in store for us!

Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having a great week. The Olympic Closing Ceremonies were this weekend, and I have to admit I’m a little sad that the Olympics are over. I had so much fun watching athletes from all around the world compete. And it must be such an exciting feeling to represent your country with the world watching. But now we have to wait two more years for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, Brazil. I bet those Games will be amazing to watch as well…I just wish I didn’t have to wait so long to see them!
I think my favorite Winter Olympics sports are figure skating and ice dancing. What about you? Max likes speed skating and all of the snowboarding events. He really wants to learn how to snowboard. He thinks it looks so fun, but I think it looks a bit scary! I told him I’ll watch him snowboard and cheer him on just like I did for the Olympic athletes.
What were your favorite winter Olympic events? Be sure to let us know! And don’t forget…have a critterrific day!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and we hope you’re having a great week! We’ve had Presidents on our minds, as Abraham Lincoln’s birthday was last Wednesday, Presidents’ Day was on Monday, and coming up this Saturday is George Washington’s birthday. With all this talk about Presidents, Lily, the Hospital Critterz, and I found some great Presidential quotes that we wanted to share with you.
“One man with courage is a majority.” – Thomas Jefferson
“It is easier to do a job right than to explain why you didn’t.” – Martin Van Buren
“An honorable defeat is better than a dishonorable victory.” – Millard Fillmore
“Above all, tell the truth.” – Stephen Grover Cleveland
“America is best described by one word, freedom.” – Dwight Eisenhower
Do you have a favorite quote? Be sure to let us know!

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and the countdown to Valentine’s Day is officially on! Only two more days until I get to hand out all of the Valentine’s Day cards that I made. I cut and colored cards for Dr. Ling, Nurse Samantha, Max, and all of the Hospital Critterz. I hope that they like them! The other good thing about Valentine’s Day is the candy…I won’t have too much, but I will have a taste, especially when it comes to those candy hearts. Those are my favorite. They’re fun to read and to eat. What’s funny about the candy hearts is that a lot of people don’t even eat them. They just have them out as decoration. In my opinion, they’re the best-tasting decorations I’ve ever seen (or eaten)!
Do you have a Valentine this year? Guess what…you’re my Valentine, too! This blog post is my very special Valentine’s Day post that’s dedicated just to you.
Have a Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! I hope it’s critterrific!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and Super Bowl XLVIII is in the history books! Did you watch on Sunday? It was a crazy game, and I still can’t believe the first play was a safety. Who would have ever predicted that? And it seemed like once that happened, the Denver Broncos just couldn’t regain their footing. The game was totally dominated by the Seattle Seahawks, and it was like you could really feel all their energy. I definitely thought the game would be closer, but it was basically a blowout. What’s funny is that the Denver Broncos were favored to win! The Seattle Seahawks were the underdogs (or maybe I should say underbirds), but that didn’t matter. It just shows you that anything is possible. Cherry-Ot told me that the 43 to 8 Seattle Seahawk victory was the biggest win ever in history by a Super Bowl underdog. Wow!
So congratulations to the Seattle Seahawks and their fans on a well-deserved win! Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and today is National Puzzle Day! Whether they’re word games, Sudoku, or jigsaw puzzles with lots of different pieces, puzzles are always fun. What’s your favorite kind of puzzle? I think I like jigsaw puzzles the most. I like doing puzzles that have pictures of animals on them, and then when I put the pieces all together, the animals look so cute! What’s also fun about puzzles is that once you’re done, you can take them apart, mix up the pieces, and start all over again.
What’s the biggest jigsaw puzzle you’ve ever done? I did one once with Max and the Hospital Critterz that had 100 pieces. As you can imagine, it took us a while to do! Did you know that some jigsaw puzzles have 32,000 pieces? I wonder how long that would take to complete. Days? Months? Years? The answer to that question is a puzzle by itself!
We hope you find a fun puzzle to play with today. And don’t forget…have a critterrific day!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and thanks for checking out our blog. We now know who is playing in the Super Bowl! And I can’t wait to watch the Denver Broncos take on the Seattle Seahawks. It’s going to be such a great game, especially because Peyton Manning, the quarterback for the Broncos, and Russell Wilson, the quarterback for the Seahawks, are two of the best in the game. I learned that Peyton Manning is a four-time MVP. And then I read that Russell Wilson played Minor League Baseball in addition to playing in the NFL. What amazing athletes! Lily, the Hospital Critterz, and I are going to watch the game together on Super Bowl Sunday which is February 2nd. I wish it was this Sunday!
I don’t know who I’m going to root for yet. Do you? Can you help me decide? All I want to see is a high scoring game with a lot of really cool plays because that’s what I think makes it the most interesting to watch.
Bye for now!
