@WWECommunity helps us to #RiseAboveCancer

Komen Key Art

Last year I posted about the WWE going pink in support of Breast Cancer awareness. WWE is thrilled to team up with Susan G. Komen once again to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Komen Key Art

This week, all along social media, I saw a lot of posts about how we don’t need awareness, we need a cure. I agree. But the Komen folks and the WWE folks are teaming up to raise money that will go towards research to FIND that cure.  Often, “awareness” is not enough.  And I am certain the Susan G. Komen foundation will raise the money and find the cure, and I am super proud that the men and women on WWE that my children IDOLIZE are helping in that cause.

@Matific Giveaway to help your child with MATH

Now that we are full swing into the school year, many of us have settled into our school routines.  Sometimes I wonder if my kids will be stuck in summer mode until Christmas vacation, and they would much rather play video games and wrestlers than sit to do homework.  When I get them to sit, they do well, but the big challenge is getting them to wind down after a full day of school!

One thing I have been able to entice them with is Matific, because it “feels” like video games to them!  My three boys have each enjoyed Matific and each like a different “game”.  I like it because they are all reinforcing what they have learned in school and what homework they just did.

Matific offers award-winning online math activities to reinforce the math lessons that K-6 students are taught in the cla...

October: Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month

Many of my readers from long ago on Mommy’s Links know this, but my newer readers may not.  Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness is something that I hold near and dear to my heart.  It has been almost fifteen years ago that I started on my journey to motherhood, and those first two years were not easy.  I had two pregnancy losses, one was an ectopic pregnancy, the second was a miscarriage which I learned of at my 12 week checkup.  Losing a Fallopian tube and having progesterone issues as well as secondary infertility, I am blessed beyond measure with my four amazing children.  But no matter how many children I have, no matter how many years passed, I will never forget the babies I lost and the struggles I had to get my kids here.

Over the last 15 years, I have met and made friends with...

Deal on Eyeglasses and Contacts!

Four out of the six of us wear glasses in our house.  We have thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Davis Vision in Massapequa for our boys, and we’ve enjoyed picking out my son Anthony’s first pair of glasses with them, but when it comes to a second pair of glasses for him, at this point it is just not in our budget.  Looking for affordable eyeglasses for kids, 39 Dollar Glasses can help! Here is some info about ordering kids eyeglasses:

When it comes to kids eyeglasses, size matters. A child will be uncomfortable in glasses that are too large or too small for them. It is important to size frames properly. Visit KidsGlasses.com for children’s prescription glasses starting at just $39.00 per pair...

Create a heart healthy environment World Heart Day #keepitpumping

Cardiovascular health is something very important to our family.  My husband, “Massapequa Dad”, suffered a heart attack just over 14 months ago.

World Heart Day takes place on September 29th every year and is a chance for people across the globe to take part in the world’s biggest intervention against cardiovascular disease (CVD).  This year, the World Heart Day focus is on creating healthy heart environments.   Our family learned just how important creating healthy heart choices are.  We strive daily to ensure not only that my husband makes heart healthy choices, but so do I, and so do our young children!  See below the infographic for how this Massapequa Family is working on this fight to increase awareness on making heart healthy choices!
