The cold never bothered me anyway.

18 Aug

Emma: Mommy, why are we dumping a bucket of water on your head after school?

Me: Well, people want to help fight a disease called ALS.

Emma: What is ALS?

Me: Here, let’s look it up. Ok. It’s a disease. It starts in the brain and it attacks the muscles. If someone gets ALS they won’t be able to move or swallow. They eventually cannot breathe. And there is no cure. People are video taping themselves getting a bucket of ice water dumped on their head to raise awareness. And they are donating money to help figure out how to stop the disease.

Emma: But why a bucket of ice water?

Me: I don’t know. It’s a challenge maybe? It’s a little crazy, huh?

Kate: Elsa would like it.

Me: Ha! She would.



A shout out to my two crazy, talented friends –

Click here to donate to the ALS Association.  – I also nominate everyone that hasn’t dumped a bucket of ice water over your head to donate. I don’t want our kids explaining to their kids what ALS is.

    That was awesome! And smart choice using the child cuteness factor ;) I didn’t have that option.

      I had to use the kids! It’s a “mommy blog.” :) Let me know if I need to shuttle my kids to NYC, you are welcome to use them as an option next time. Ha!
      Thanks for the nomination. I was happy to donate as well.

      Oh, the kids loved it!! They loved the ice bucket the most.
      But how awesome would it be to find a cure after all this money raised?? I want to tell my kids we helped save people’s lives.


Ok, now it's your turn - write me back.
