Safety First – make “Up and Away” your mantra!

Final_June_Infographic_TipsforParents_June21

June is National Safety Month and the CDC, along with the PROTECT Initiative, of which the CHPA Educational Foundation is a member, launched the #MedsUpAway program.  We are continuing the conversation on Safe Medicine Storage.  I joined the OTC Safety Ambassador program for many reasons, but mostly because I am a mom who is all too guilty of being lax when it comes to safe medicine storage.  You would think, as a nurse, who has seen one too many cases of accidents related to medications, I would be the MOST careful.  I imagine my own relaxed attitude is one that many share, similar […]

When I Grow Up: I want to be a Lego Master Builder

DH-MINILAND 2

I love the question, What do you want to be when you grow up?  At every stage of growing up that answer changes.  I especially love answers like fireman, police officer and doctor.  Occasionally I get surprised by an answer and this time from our child reporter Hunter who said, I want to be a Lego Master Builder.  What does a Lego Master Builder do?  Hunter got a chance to interview the newly named Lego Master Builder at the LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester, David Howard. When I grow up I want to be a Lego Master Builder (L.M.B.).  They make new […]

Spending Father’s Day with the Mets!

photo

For Father’s Day this year, I had the difficult task of figuring out what to get my husband to show him how much the kids and I appreciate and love him. When the opportunity to take the family to a NY Mets game arose, I simply couldn’t pass it up. I knew there was nothing better than giving my husband the chance to watch his favorite team with his boys from field level seats right behind the 3rd baseline. From the minute we arrived, our 3 year old was beyond excited to cheer for his team and was walking through […]

About Ellie Beatus

After spending the bulk of my childhood in New Jersey, I've had the privilege of living in many different places all over the world. I have experienced many incredible things in my life, but none as amazing as when I become a mom. I may work as a full time registered nurse, but I am also a full time mother. I believe that there is nothing more important in the world than my family, and I cherish every moment spent with them. I hope to be able enrich my children's lives by sharing in wonderful experiences, teaching them life lessons, and nurturing them as they grow and help to make the world a better place for all of us.

Earlier this week I had the chance to celebrate with the amazing Maggie Gyllenhaal, the 125th anniversary of the First Aid Kit.  The First Aid Kit is my version of the “best invention since sliced bread.”   To commemorate this milestone, Johnson & Johnson has launched a new campaign focused on everyday care that provides funding and resources to help educate consumers about the importance of first aid preparedness.  The Everyday Care campaign kicks off with a partnership with Safe Kids Worldwide that leverages the support of Maggie Gyllenhaal on an initiative to prevent childhood injuries by helping educate children and […]

#OTCSafety : Up and Away the Meds Go!

photo 2-1

June is National Safety Month and the CDC, along with the PROTECT Initiative, of which the CHPA Educational Foundation is a member, is launching #MedsUpAway program.  When I first was invited to join the OTC Safety Ambassador Program, I thought it was such a perfect fit.  As a nurse I understand the importance of OTC Safety.  I am the one in my family that monitors all the medications, eliminates expired medications much to the chagrin of my husband who, as soon as I toss the expired antibiotic, needs it desperately, despite it being over 3-4 months past due.  As much as I’ve tried […]

SPOTTED: Allermates, Your Child’s Best Friend #Giveaway

case

Allergies are no fun.  Ask any kid. Ask my kid.  He hates being the kid with allergies.  At age 3, he already thinks its unfair he can’t go to Pizza parties or eat the same things as his sister does.  Alas there are some cool things about having allergies… like his “superman” allergy bracelet.  He loves his “superman” allergy bracelet and especially loves when I read it to him.  It goes something like this, “Marcus Chan, allergic to dairy and nuts… in case of emergency call Momma! (it has my phone number on it).”  He always roars with laughter when […]
