When “We’re Not Ready” because “We Must” #VZWBuzz

GizmoGadget2

My daughter has been asking for a cellphone ever since she laid her hands on my iPhone (at the tender age of 2). At 2 years old, “You’re too little”. At 3 years old, “Still too little!” At 4 years old, “Yep, still too little!” At 5 years old, “What does a 5 year old need a cellphone for?” At 6 years old, “Your aunt bought you an iPad, you’re welcome.” At 7 years old after being told her friends have cellphones, “and if they said to jump off a bridge, would you?” At 8 years old… “You win.” I […]

Educational Gaming With @LeapFrogOfficial #LeapTV #LeapFrogMomSquad

leap

I’ve been reluctant to introduce gaming systems to my kids for the longest time.  Sure they can navigate my smart phone better than me at this point, and even my three-year-old knows how to swipe into whatever app he is interested in playing, but my husband and I really try to limit TV time with our children and video gaming through the TV seemed to be a mind-numbing activity that I was hoping to keep far away from our household. When my five-year-old heard (through the ‘kindergarten grape vine’) about something called #LeapTV, it was all he could talk about. […]

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. (Ellie currently resides in Long island, NY with her two young sons and husband)

Let’s Get it Holidone! #VZWBuzz

moto360

Being a self proclaimed techy, it’s definitely a gift I love to give and my friends at Verizon Wireless have something for everyone! Gizmo Gadget – My darling daughter has been begging for a phone for a while now and not just  a phone, an iPhone.  Yeah, I’m not quite sure we’re ready to invest quite that much for an 8 year old and my husband is already questioning how much screen time she’s currently clocking in.  We can only imagine if she had an iPhone.  Not only that, but the lack of parental controls is concerning to us.  We […]

Making Sure Everyone is having a Fa-La-La-La Good Time! #LifeOnFiOS

Dec10-6497

The holidays can be stressful times.  Lot’s of gifts to be bought, decorations to be hung, meals to be planned and so much more. Many of us will have a full house that will get even fuller during the holidays.  With my family of 7 and quite a few holiday guests coming to share in the cheer, I can already hear “Do you have wifi?” “What’s the wifi code?” “Do you have parental controls on?” “Are there any dead spots in your house?” and of course the scariest one of all, “Why is the internet so slow?!” My family of […]

Be Well with Amwell #MomsLoveAmwell

amwell_1

As a healthcare provider, the possibilities of this FREE Amwell app are amazing. I couldn’t wait to try out this Amwell app but with my one visit, I wasn’t sure what service I wanted to utilize.  With options to remotely speak to primary care, diet and nutrition as well as psychology or doctors locally specializing in primary care, therapy, dermatology, or pediatrics with open office hours, there was so many choices. Until I had no choice.  Now I am completely obsessed with this app and can’t stop telling everyone about my experience. Yesterday, I was in meetings all day long. […]

5 Tips for a Safe Halloween #VZWBuzz

Halloween Treats

If your child is old enough to go Trick or Treating on their own, they’re probably old enough to own their own phones.  This is where I definitely think having one is a good thing. This Halloween and any Halloween, ensure your kids have a safe and fun Halloween with these simple tips. Make sure your child’s phone is fully charged. Seems obvious and yet not always the case! Pre-program ICE (In Case of Emergency) numbers into your child’s phone and make sure they know how to call it. Set alarms to give them reminders to check in and even […]

5 Apps for Tech-loving Foodies #VZWBuzz

nood2

There are a zillion apps that cater to foodies, but what gets to stay on the homescreen on your mobile phone is the true test. Here are 5 of my favorite food reference apps of all time: One of the coolest apps I’ve come across is Wineglass [$4.99 on iOS].  I admit I’m not a big wine drinker, but my husband and his friends are.  Wanting not to look stupid at a restaurant simply always ordering the house wine, Wineglass makes wine pairing as easy as scanning the wine list with your phone and populates with ratings and reviews as well […]
