#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 […]

ALLERGY DIARIES: Give Me Some Relief Please!

Ocean Kids_pkg-rgb-shdw-lr 4-18-12

And it’s officially allergy season (again)!  I don’t know about you, but this is the time of year I dread.  It’s the only time of year I feel any effect of pollen.  Its always been tolerable for me, with nothing more than itchy nose, eyes and the sensation of wanting to rip my skin off, especially worst when I didn’t get enough sleep, but now with my son’s severe compounded allergies, I dread it more than anything.  On top of his food allergies, he’s also super sensitive to environmental triggers.  We tried to ignore the signs, stuffy nose, a persistent […]

Finding My Work Life Balance

It’s been a week since I’ve gone back to work.  I have to say again, I love, love, love my job.  I feel incredibly blessed to finally have found my calling and that it is a job that works so well for my family.  I am blessed in that I look forward to going to work, look forward to meeting my patients of the day, happy to see my co-workers, love that I learn something new each and every day on the job.  I am blessed that my job has a very flexible schedule and amazing benefits that has saved […]

Let’s Keep Our Children Safe #OTCsafety

DidUKnow_Infographic1

We’ve all heard of someone, or know of someone whose child got into the medicine cabinet… or an old wives tale of alternative uses for an over the counter medication gone wrong.  You’d think we were all horrified enough to keep our children safe and yet research has found astounding statistics showing we don’t.  As a nurse, you’d expect my family to be the exemplary example of medicine safety and I sadly hang my head in shame. My husband never listens to me about expired medication, and I have many times purged his “precious and expensive” expired medication to keep […]

REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY: Baby Announcements from Tiny Prints

announce

It always amazes me how much things can change from one child to another.  Even the little things like all the options available now for printing of Baby Announcements.  I remember how impressed I was the first time I shopped Tiny Prints for Holiday cards back in 2008.  I received so many compliments on the card and not just because my adorable Ava’s mug was on it. When Shutterfly merged with Tiny Prints in April 2011, it brought together two of my favorite brands.  I am a huge fan of Shutterfly’s photobooks.  I make a family one every year, and […]

Disney Love at the Art of Animation Resort

A while back we were invited to preview the Art of Animation Resort and while it was beautiful, we didn’t get a chance to experience first hand until this past December.  Boy was it amazing!  It’s hard to believe that this is considered a Disney Value Resort, with rooms starting at $118 per night, when you consider all they are offering. This themed resort is full of visual eye candy from their larger than life Cars displays to characters from both the Lion King, Finding Nemo and The Little Mermaid.  Your child will be totally enchanted from start to finish […]
