2001: The Year of the Rainy TV Interview

So, when I was 3 years old, I had one of my very first television interviews, with CityTV. Now, that was a pretty big deal, especially for a three-year-old! Long story short though, I had to wake up at around 4am, and go down to the station, where I stood out in the RAIN with my mom and the interview reporter. Let me tell you, it was one heck of a long morning. Oh sure, I really appreciated the time off preschool, and the fantastic media coverage it gave me that year for the stand, but seriously, rain? Jeez.

There it is, the rainy interview. How can you tell that it’s raining? Umbrella.

The 3rd lemonade stand introduced me to a lot of the media. Television, Newspaper, Radio. As a three-year-old, I can imagine that I was totally thrilled! Some cool grown-ups were asking me easy questions about my fun lemonade stand, and were just, you know, always smiling at me! I just got to talk, and everyone would listen, it was fantastic!

H&S Ride 2001-8


Appearance of the Purple Helmet of Awesome, on the Ride for Heart! Hey, I still had a pretty cool gig going there: riding, looking at the CN tower and snacking on cheerios… while Daddy had to exercise!

Lemonade Stand #3-58This photo was taken after the Ride for Heart that year, when I was handing in the money that I had raised that year at the lemonade stand. See that little red pail in the bottom left corner (with the dalmatian dogs on it?) yeah, that’s what I wanted to carry the money in. I was an unusually dalmatain-obsessed child. But, it looks like I was doing a pretty proficient job with handing in that money. Go me!

Lemonade Stand #3-46This is definitely one of my very favourite ‘lemonade-stand-pictures’. With my Ride shirt and matching ‘VIP’ hat, I think I decided to take a nap on one of those lawn-chair things. I seriously doubt I could still sprawl across one of those now, like I did then… but I definitely approve of my nap location choice. After all, the life of a philanthropist and lemonade CEO is a busy one, even as a toddler! 🙂
