Splish Splash! Fun in our own backyard!

IMG_20130629_143247_884

 It’s hard to believe summer is almost over!  That’s not to say there isn’t time left to still enjoy ourselves!  What I have enjoyed most this summer is enjoying all the amazing activities right in our own backyard!  From exploring the Jersey Shore (#STTS) to Coney Island (#ConeyComeback), which have both amazingly bounced back from the storm to fun jaunts like our favorite Bronx Zoo and new favorites like Splish Splash!  I had no idea this little gem was right in our own backyard, Long Island! Just a short trip out to Riverhead, where we’ve gone plenty of times (to […]

5 Tips for Travel Sanity with Kids #OTCSafety

IMG_1272

  Traveling is at an all time high as the summer draws to a close and everyone tries to get in their last hurrahs before school starts. As a newly minted mother of 3/4 kids, I know what a challenge traveling can be with children and I’ve got the full gambit from newborn, 3 year old, 6 year old and 9 year old.  It’s all about planning ahead.  Here are some tips that have really saved my sanity. Yes there are plenty of packing lists you can download but none that is personalized to you.  I’ve tried the pre-made lists […]

Android vs iPhone vs Windows OS — Oh My! #VZWBuzz

nokia-lumia928

Over the past few months I’ve had a chance to check out all three options and I have to say, it’s not an easy choice between the 3.  Each have their unique pluses and minuses which leaves each person to find the right OS for them.  So let’s break it down. If you’re a more traditional OS based person, your choice may simply lie on whether or not you’re a Microsoft person or an Apple fan (Windows OS vs iPhone OS).  Although I don’t think it’s just as simple as that.  The iPhone while simplified in its options, does it’s […]

Lets go (Mr. and Mrs.) Mets! #MetsMoms

IMG_0853

I have always said that one of my wishes in life would be to expose my children to as many exciting life experiences as possible. Being a #MetsMom has given me an opportunity to do just that. My three year old son has such a love for baseball that every game we attend, seems to be the best experience of his life. His face lights up the moment we enter Citi Field, and by now he knows all of the players’ names and positions! When we were given the opportunity to see the Mets play the Phillies this past Sunday, […]

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.

If you don’t know already, I’m a LACTIVIST, loud and proud, I’ve fed two of my children for 2.5+ years each and plan on doing so with my third.  So far we are almost 4 months in (that’s my lil guy to the right in a milk coma!) and my little preemie is just thriving on good ol’ breastmilk  — nectar of the Gods I say!  Not just as a labor and delivery nurse, but as a mother too, I’m not blind to the many challenges that breastfeeding can bring.  Images of babies perfectly latched on from day one and […]

Kids says the Darnedest things!  So many times I’ve said I wanted to record a moment and then the moment has past.  Recently inspired by a book I got for my daughter, Q & A a Day for Kids: A Three-Year Journal, I was so excited for the Children’s Place Win $10,000 in their Cash for Class contest!  Imagine winning $10,000 for simply capturing a memorable moment?! The Children’s PLACE has teamed up with Parents and their Family Fun magazine to celebrate back to school with an exclusive sweepstakes. From July 9th through September 30th enter on the parents.com website […]

REVIEW: Britax Frontier 90 Booster Seat

Frontier 90

Britax is always surprising me with their most intuitive innovations.  They have become the brand I trust the safety of my children to.  Their newest Harness to Booster seat, the BRITAX FRONTIER™90 does not disappoint.  With the recent findings that Latch installation systems have a maximum weight limit, Britax comes to the market with an innovative and yet simple solution called their ClickTight™ Installation. When I say it’s simple, it really couldn’t be any easier.  You simply place the seat into position, pop open the seat opening, thread your seat belt through.  Remove any slack and simply close the seat.  With the […]

Here Come the Bugs!

July19_Bugs_Infograph

    One of the biggest dislikes about NYC summers is the bugs… the gnats, those swarms of tiny little bugs, and those pesky little mosquitoes that like to bite… NOT MY FRIEND. I just learned that not all topical pain relievers are equal.  It’s important to make sure you’re choosing the RIGHT one for you and each member of your family.  In addition to the above infographic, it’s important to make sure not to get it in your eyes too… About Suzanne ChanSuzanne is student, daughter, wife, (labor & delivery) certified registered nurse, certified lactation counselor, friend, entrepreneur and […]
