5 Tips for a Safe Halloween #VZWBuzz

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 […]

The Boomers Keep On Booming! #AgingWell

This generation of Grandparents are awe inspiring.  Gone are the days of sitting at home baking and gardening.  My children’s grandparents are some of the most active grandparents I know.  Before my mother in law had cancer she was a vibrant and social grandmother.  She wasn’t one to sit around and wait to babysit my kids. We were often finding ourselves working around her busy social schedule of trips, mah jong games and dancing. This generation of seniors are “Boomers”! They don’t want anything slowing them down.  They are vibrant and energetic, matching my kid’s energy and enthusiasm for life […]

‘Delayed’ Anaphalaxis: It’s Not Always Like TV

Anaphylaxis is a severe, life threatening reaction to an allergen.  It can happen seconds, minutes with full reaction HOURS later (2-28 hours). If left untreated, it can lead to unconsciousness or even death. Yesterday, my son Marcus had an anaphylactic reaction almost immediately after eating his lunch at school, but it was easily dismissed as an upset stomach.  Fast forward 5 hours after ingestion of an unknown allergen, he could barely breath.  Marcus has a myriad of allergies including the top 8 food allergies aka “The BIG 8” – Egg, Milk, Wheat, Soy, Shellfish, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, and Sesame.  With Marcus’ extensive allergy […]

5 Apps for Tech-loving Foodies #VZWBuzz

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 […]

FiOS TV Interactive Media Guide and How to Replace a Broken Remote #LifeOnFiOS

Very wisely, over the years as a long time Verizon FiOS customer, I have kept every remote control despite other equipment upgrades.  Hey I’ve got 3 children and let me tell you, “Where’s the remote?” is a question asked frequently in my home (or more often shouted in distress!).  I have to say, almost 7 years later and probably 6 or more remotes later, we’re reached a point where only 1 remote control works for 3 set-top boxes.  As you can well imagine, that is a NO BUENO!  In fact I’m convinced there is a 2nd if not a 3rd […]

REVIEW: LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum and Imagicard Fun

You know when the iPad has become old news to your children that it must be pretty awesome.  While my kids are definitely fans, I think the parentals are the ones who are most happy with this new addition to our tablet family.  Our children’s screen time does tip on the more time than many would agree with but providing educational play is key for us.  With the iPad, my husband and I found complete lack of control over the content our children were engaging with and whether or not they are age appropriate for  them.  Our children span ages […]
