What is Coming to America’s Largest Indoor Waterpark @kalahariresorts

Only a 1.5 hour ride outside of New York City, and tucked away in what I can only describe as a beautifully landscaped and very secluded property, is one of the largest indoor water parks in America, Kalahari Resorts & Conventions. Having never been to an indoor water park, we were excited to see what the hype was all about and after our stay last weekend, I think it’s safe to say our family has found a perfect slice of summer in the middle of a long New York winter. Kalahari Resorts & Conventions opened their Pennsylvanian doors in 2015 and […]

ANAPHYLAXIS: We’re All at Risk

There has been a lot of focus on anaphylaxis in the news thanks to Mylan’s NOT recent, but gradual price hikes to a shocking approximate $750 per prescription. While that is horrifying and a reality for many families, I am fortunate enough to work for a wonderful healthcare system which covers my 2 sons’ prescriptions.  Between the 2 of them, we always have on hand 4 prescriptions at any given time. Given Marcus’ history alone, with his over 2 dozen life threatening reactions that have required the use of the epi-pen jr, it’s heartbreaking to know that this start of […]

A Whole New Way to Fight off the Mosquitos with PARA’KITO @parakitoUSA

Summer is in full swing and that means lots of summer concerts, camping, hiking and of course, tons of outdoor play.  Being outdoors is a given in this warm weather.  My family enjoys being outside until long after the sun has gone down.  Together we run through sprinklers, go on long bike rides and catch fireflies at sunset.  We have endless thoughts of perfectly quaint family outings and barbeques and out adventures are always seemingly picture perfect.  Summer fun seems like it comes without flaws or without nuisances.  What our happy pictures don’t show are the little things that can […]

Pampers Swaddlers Honors Nurses with #ThankYouNurses Awards

Nursing isn’t just any career, or a routine way to make a living. It’s a profession that takes a certain type of passionate and caring person. Nursing feels more like it is an art form that requires devotion, dedication and a strong sense of compassion. Being a nurse often means putting others before yourself and often being away from your family to care for someone else’s.  Most nurses can say that they have missed countless holidays and family moments over the years. Despite all this, we, as nurses, don’t go to work looking for recognition or praise. We go to work every day […]

Ha-Ha, the Jokes on Ava!

I’m not going to lie. Reading is not a favorite activity for Ava of ItsSoAva.com. She doesn’t hate reading. It’s just not the first thing she’d choose to do if she had some free time. That’s okay though, I get it. She’s a busy girl with lots of friends, lots of extracurricular activities, she vlogs. She’s busy. Heck I’m busy too. I haven’t read a book with her in ages, in fact, probably not since she was little and reading books now usually is reserved for 3 year old little brother in hopes of building that love of learning right […]

It’s a movie about passion, excitement, endurance and motivation. The characters reek of talent, drive, and commitment.

When “We’re Not Ready” because “We Must” #VZWBuzz

My daughter has been asking for a cellphone ever since she laid her hands on my iPhone (at the tender age of 2). At 2 years old, “You’re too little”. At 3 years old, “Still too little!” At 4 years old, “Yep, still too little!” At 5 years old, “What does a 5 year old need a cellphone for?” At 6 years old, “Your aunt bought you an iPad, you’re welcome.” At 7 years old after being told her friends have cellphones, “and if they said to jump off a bridge, would you?” At 8 years old… “You win.” I […]
