Solving the Mystery around Fire Safety

PART_1413217152388_IMG_2019

Just in time for Fire Safety Week, the National Fire Protection Association launches another amazing interactive app made just for kids called, The Case of the Missing Fire Alarms. Kids all around the country are learning about fire safety in school, and hopefully at home as well, but we all know repetition is a powerful learning tool. While we hope never to encounter a fire in our lifetime, safety is key.  This app reinforces the importance of fire safety in a fun way.  Not only is this an educational app, teaching our children about fire safety, specifically the importance of fire […]

Preparing Your Family in the Event of an Emergency with Sesame Workshop and PSE&G

ContenderMonster_SesameVertBanner_ePrepENG2

Hurricane Katrina. Superstorm Sandy. House fires. Tornados. Flooding. Natural disasters can strile when we least expect them, and even when warned, not everyone is prepared. In 2013, more than 85 nationally declared emergencies including hurricanes, tornados, floods and fires were recorded, and yet, according to a national survey, 60% of families in the U.S. still do not have any emergency plan. That is a very scary statistic to wrap my head around. Sesame Workshop and PSE&G have seen firsthand that there is a lack of engaging, family-oriented material to support the development of preparation strategies for emergencies, especially within families […]

For Me and For the Kids #MiracleMarathon

smc_mm

It’s hard to believe that my #MiracleMarathon is almost over.  What started out as a great fundraiser for my local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, Cohen’s Childrens Medical Center (also a part of North Shore LIJ Health Systems, which I work for) has become so much more to me and everyone on my team.  I am super proud of myself for sticking with it.  As many people have often described me as being super busy, I managed to find the time to commit, not just to this charity, but to myself.  It wasn’t lost on me that I wasn’t in the […]

Date Night With Noodles & Company

nood5

When MomConfessionals was asked to check out a recently opened restaurant in Garden City, we were all too happy to oblige.  After all, who would pass up the opportunity to try some tasty new foods, let alone pasta dishes?  It was an offer us foodies were happy to receive. I was fortunate to have a private tasting with my husband last Saturday night and I’m so glad that we were able to share the experience. To say our experience was catered to our liking is easy, given the personal attention you will get when you eat at Noodles & Company. While […]

Gettin in the Game with Nerf Rebelle Rapid Red Blaster #NerfNation

rapidred

Growing up in a house full of boys can be tough.  I can sympathize with my Ava when the boys are rough housing, playing pirates with swords, cops and robbers or even sports that simply don’t allow girls.  It’s tough.  Don’t get my wrong, she can definitely stand her own against the 3 of them, but is it too much to ask that she not be “the girl” rather just one of the kids?  That’s why I love Nerf Rebelle and their line of blasters that get girls in the game.  Ava was super excited to get her hands on […]

DEALS & STEALS: Honest Shampoo + Body Wash

Honest Shampoo + BodyWash

One of my favorite brands is Honest Co.  I simply love it for the kids and have recently gone completely HONEST in our home.  Word on the streets has it that Honest Co products can be found in Target, Nordstroms and even warehouse stores like Costco but I have been a monthly subscriber since the company started.  I’ve found products are still cheaper with a subscription and with so many choices in products, choosing 5 a month is a tough one, making the subscription a no-brainer for our family. Have I considered purchasing at a warehouse store?  Not once, until […]

Simple Teachings about Simple Giving #SIMPLEGiving

© SUZANNE M. CHAN 2013

I’ve been having an ongoing lesson with my children on being charitable.  If there is anything that I want my children to learn, it’s to be charitable.  In recent years I’ve learned that being charitable reaps multitudes of rewards.  I am a strong believer in karma and what you put out is what you get in return.  Whenever I get the chance to impart the wisdom of charity in its many forms, I accept it. It’s so simple to be charitable and Champions for Kids has partnered up with Dole to encourage community projects across the country benefiting children in […]
