Well, it’s Monday again, mamas. How was your weekend? We hope it was good, but it not, we’ve got your cure: A ticket giveaway to see the awesome kids’ show The Bockety World of Henry & Bucket!
We’re giving away 4 tickets for the show at Walton Arts Center on Saturday Feb. 18th. Woo-hoo!
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Henry and Bucket are best pals, although sometimes you wouldn’t think so! Like all good friends they have their ups and downs, their battles and reconciliations, their shared adventures and, at times, a need for their own space. But as long as these two friends are together, transforming their rusty, dusty, battered and bockety world of discarded objects into a place of wonder, their adventures can take them anywhere. Lots of visual humor for the kids 🙂 This show explores what friendship is, what happens if it goes wrong, and how you can fix it.
What’s it like in the Bockety World? Here’s a little video:

Always trust, and never discuss religion or politics!
My best friendship advice: Be kind. Be Honest. Be interested. 🙂
Always be willing to listen 🙂
You have to be able to listen and not just talk! Don’t always take, but be willing to give.
Make them laugh. It puts everyone at ease if you can make them smile and laugh. But then once they’re at ease, then ask them a question about themselves.
Best friendship advice–be genuine and put others ahead of yourself.
The Golden Rule is one that was ingrained in me from the beginning of my life and I continue to teach it to my children!
“Treat others the way you want to be treated!”
show your friends grace, and treat them how you want to be treated.
Listen more than you talk
Honesty and laughter!
I credit long friendships with grace and laughter. No guilt trips for not calling or having to cancel when we make plans. Best friends (especially Mamas!) understand.
For long lasting friendship my village appreciates honesty, support and a wicked sense of humor!
Saying your sorry when there has been a misunderstanding or hurt feelings and doing it sooner rather than later. Your friendship is worth your pride!
Always be true, necessary, and kind!!
My friendship advice is keep inviting friends to do things even if you are told no initially. People enjoy being included. 🙂
My friendship advice would be to always stay honest and don’t gossip behind each other’s backs. 🙂
In Honor of Henry and Bucket, I believe the best tip to friendship is being there for each other when you are needed. Sometimes that is just for a hug. Sometimes it is to help defend. Sometimes it is to provide honesty or an ear to listen.
The key to friendship to me is to love them unconditionally even when they tell you something you don’t agree with, no judgement, only unconditional love and kind, compassionate words.
Honesty, trust, and being able to leave fun..
Ooops.. that should say have fun, not leave fun.. let the good times roll.
Listen to understand. Ask questions.
To have a lasting friendship you must be honest and understanding with each other
The best friendship advice I can give is this–Friendship Recipe: plenty of grace, lots of laughter, keep in touch and KNOW their heart.
Just be together. If you can’t in person, on the phone, skype, via a letter… just be there for her!!
Even when far apart, keep in touch. Send letters, send care packages, make phone calls.
