Mother's Day Special

May 07, 2021 Booky

Betsy is going to be very embarrassed by all this attention but I think everyone should know the beaver who raised such a wonderful, witty, talented, intelligent, creative, caring, modest individual who brings so much joy to so many people.

Even as a young kit, I knew my mom was special.  She taught me how to swim when I was only 30 mins old and after a week when I was still too light to dive, it was mom who brought me under the water so I could see what my older siblings were up to.  I went everywhere with mom and sometimes when I was sleepy she’d let me ride her tail till I couldn’t keep my eyes open.

When I left home at 2 years of age, it was mom again who gave me lots of advice and I’m going to share some of that advice with you.

  1. Always be yourself
  2. Keep a tidy home – a tidy beaver is a happy beaver
  3. Never be afraid to try something new
  4. Groom your fur daily
  5. Laugh everyday (try to do this with friends – it just looks weird on your own!)
  6. Pamper yourself (especially with our Mother’s Day crafts that I created)
  7. Be a good friend
  8. Don’t worry if your teeth are orange – it’s perfectly normal
  9. Travel – life is too short to stay in your own lodge forever

And this last one, for me at least is the most important.

     10. Never leave home without clean underwear!


Happy Mother’s Day, Betsy – I love you!
