Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having a great week! During this time of year, I always find myself waiting. Whether it’s waiting for Thanksgiving to come, waiting for the holidays, waiting for friends and family to visit, or simply waiting for something exciting to occur, I’m always waiting, waiting, waiting! Jella told me that there’s a song by Tom Petty called, The Waiting, and the lyrics are, “The waiting is the hardest part.” And you know what? It’s true! Waiting is never easy when you have fun things ahead. But you just have to take it day by day because you never know what other fun things may be closer than you think!
Bye for now!

Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having an awesome day. First, we’d like to say congratulations to the Kansas City Royals for winning the World Series! The games were super exciting to see, and I felt like I was watching the players’ hopes and dreams come true before my eyes. It reminded me about how important it is to keep on dreaming and believing in yourself and your abilities. With hard work, dedication, practice, and perseverance, we can reach our goals…and even surpass them! You never know what you can accomplish until you try. Keep up the good work!
Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having a wonderful day. But sometimes there are days that are not so wonderful. And those are the days when you really need to surround yourself with family, friends, and people who love you. There may be days when you feel disappointed, sad, frustrated, or let down. Maybe you didn’t do as well as you hoped on a school project. Or perhaps someone even hurt your feelings. No matter what happens, just remember that tomorrow is a new day, and you should never forget how special, important, and amazing you are. Just be the best “you” that you can be. Don’t get discouraged. The wonderful days are just right around the corner.
You are critterrifc!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having a wonderful week. Max and I are excited to tell you that tomorrow is Count Your Buttons Day! While you may have buttons on your shirt or pants, have you ever thought about the other buttons that you use in one day? We press buttons all of the time, whether it’s the button for the elevator, the buttons on a remote control, or the button that turns a computer on and off. October 21st is a day dedicated to all of the buttons, big and small, that we use each day. And who could forget the other kind of button that we all know…the belly button!
We hope you have fun counting buttons tomorrow. 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. Did you know that today is Emergency Nurses Day? In fact, this entire week is actually Emergency Nurses Week! Emergency nurses are nurses who work in emergency rooms and departments, and we are all so thankful for what they do every day (and night!) to help others feel better. Emergency nurses have to be ready for anything, and they treat patients will all sorts of different ailments and concerns. To all the emergency nurses out there, Lily, the Hospital Critterz, and I would like to say, “Thanks for all that you do!”
