Happy Red Nose Day

Red Nose Day is here ūüėČ

I have always tried to lead by example when it comes to helping others. Kids can be the best of helpers when they are little but as they get bigger they need motivation to lend a helping hand. Any time I “purge” from my kids¬†stock pile of toys or clothes I try to tell them where the items will go and who they will help. I think having them involved in choosing¬†items they don’t need or use anymore helps¬†them think of who that next person will be. Thinking of the next person is the best way I can explain why we should let go of things, lend a helping hand or part with a few dollars to help a good cause.

My kids have been so excited for the past month about Red Nose Day. They saw the display when we stopped in Walgreens after school one day. I allowed them to each get a red nose, “This is the best day ever” said my son. That got him asking questions about what the $1¬†donation was going towards and “What was Red Nose Day?” We looked it up and they immediately decided we needed to celebrate. Today we did, we bought Red Nose gear and it was fun taking silly pictures. Before bed I let them watch a little of the Red Nose Day show and after listening to a few stories and hearing people donate my son says “Hey Mom, I wish there was a way I could donate my $6 dollars.” He was proud to know that the money we spent on Red Nose products went to help needy children.

This Mama was very proud of her little monkeys today.

Hi, I am a blessed Mom of 3 little monkeys, 2 boys and 1 girl but my life has been full of little monkeys even before I became a Mom. I’ve worked in the veterinary field for about 20 years now and have taken care of many animals either in boarding, general medical and emergencies. I’ve been an emergency technician for the past 13 years and it has allowed me to have more one on one attention with my other little monkeys, my patients. Children and Animals have always been close to my heart and I love learning what I can to help them feel safe and secure and be happy and healthy. I have been with the love of my life for 16 years, he is a wonderful husband and father. My husband has a green thumb particularly favors tropical plants so I may chat about that from time to time. I enjoy scrap booking, themed birthday parties and kids crafts. I attend continuing education classes and conferences to keep up with the ever changing animal world. I am big on client education and making sure people are familiar with their pets needs. I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts and opinions in this monkey world of mine.
