Pampers Swaddlers Honors Nurses with #ThankYouNurses Awards

Pampers_Logo_Teal

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!

jacky3

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 […]

Better Matters, Switching to FiOS in a Snap!

Quality Streaming a MUST for Potty Time! / Photo by: Suzanne Chan

Once you live in New York City, you become so spoiled by the fast paced, instant gratification of a city that never sleeps.  Only in New York City can you have food delivered to your home 24 hours a day – seriously after the kids are asleep I get cravings for greasy fast food I’d never let them eat, watch a movie at 2AM in the morning (my favorite thing to do when fighting with the hubby – let him wonder where I’ve gone!), have breakfast for dinner, or go clubbing until the sun comes up (not that I do […]

Catch Up with Emmet and Friends in the All New LEGO Movie – 4D A New Adventure

IMG_3929

A little snow wasn’t going to stop my little man and his best girl from catching up with Emmet, Wyldstyle, Unikitty, MetalBeard and Benny at the uber fun LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Westchester. What have they been up to since their blockbuster movie where everything was left AWESOME!? The sequel to the movie won’t hit theaters until 2018 and that’s LONG while away. I won’t spoil the fun, but The LEGO Movie – 4D A New Adventure has made its official debut and is showing at a LEGOLAND Discovery Center near you. Playing several times throughout the day, you don’t want […]

Educational Gaming With @LeapFrogOfficial #LeapTV #LeapFrogMomSquad

leap

I’ve been reluctant to introduce gaming systems to my kids for the longest time.  Sure they can navigate my smart phone better than me at this point, and even my three-year-old knows how to swipe into whatever app he is interested in playing, but my husband and I really try to limit TV time with our children and video gaming through the TV seemed to be a mind-numbing activity that I was hoping to keep far away from our household. When my five-year-old heard (through the ‘kindergarten grape vine’) about something called #LeapTV, it was all he could talk about. […]

It’s a Merry Merry Baby’s First Christmas!

court

I can’t believe my Marcus is turning 6 years old in just a few days! It seems like just yesterday I was telling myself I wasn’t in labor because it was simply too early.  I even managed to sit and breath through breakfast with my daughter and husband before asking to be dropped off at the hospital just to be checked out.  I remember being so sure that they would just watch me for a few hours and then send me on home. At exactly 36 weeks he decided to make an earlier arrival and what an entrance he made! […]
