I had to go to Walmart on Sunday to buy a camouflage dress for Tuesday’s outfit. K said she wants a pink camo. There was no girls pink camo shirt in the store but I saw a girl’s pink camo dress. So I bought one and so delighted that it’s priced $3 .

Then last night was the last minute preparation for today’s career dress up. I asked K what her future job would be. Though she had a lot in mind, she was particular about being a doctor for animals. So veterinarian it is. She had a Doc McStuffins costume in her closet when she was 5. So I improvised that and created a stethoscope because her stethoscope toy was nowhere to be found.

Darling daughter’s school is having a week-long campaign called Red Ribbon Week. It is a yearly nationwide campaign against illegal drugs, drug abuse, bullying, and violence. This is observed every month of October in the United States. This is to raise awareness to prevent these horrible deeds and habits. This teaches young individuals the importance of keeping their lives drug-free.
To support the engagement of the students in this campaign, they come up with Red Ribbon themes for this week at K’s school.
Monday – Wear Red as everyone gets RED-y for Red Ribbon Week, and get a red ribbon
Tuesday – Wear camo or camouflage, Fight Against Drugs and Bullies
Wednesday – Wear sunglasses, Our Future is too Bright for Drugs
Thursday – Wear red, white and blue, United We Stand against Drugs and Bullies
Friday – Dress like a super hero outfit or wear a cape, Power to be Drug-Free
The fight against illegal drugs, bullies, and violence is not only happening for a week. It should be for life.
