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 […]

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.

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 […]

Are you ready for the New School Year?!

20140830-730

For the last 10 months I have been tutoring an amazing 7-year-old, aka the Little Miss, who just needed a little extra encouragement to get her work done and work to her fullest potential. Much of the work we did was homework handouts, spelling words, and reading. Once school was out, it was my job to figure out how to keep the learning fun. I was grateful to discover the new game “Are You Ready For 2nd Grade?” which kept the spirit of summer with a sprinkling of learning. I don’t know who was more excited, the tutor or the […]

Lands’ End Passes the Test with Flying Colors #FirstDayFaves

Lands End BTS 3

Over the last few years, Lands End had become one of my absolute favorite brands.  For my family, it’s not just about style but also quality and Lands’ End is quality.  With 4 very active children, I need clothing and items that can withstand anything.  They are my go-to for Back to School basics. The Little Miss wears uniforms to school and  I stock up for the entire year with their School Uniform Girls’ Perfect Fit Plain Front Stain Resistant Chino Pants, School Uniform Girls’ Blend Chino Skort and their sweet Peter Pan collared shirts, both short and long sleeve.  With almost […]
