Thursday, September 29th, 2011

Pinocchio wins as the most talented ice-skater in “Disney on Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic” at the Savannah Civic Center Thursday. But the crowd favorite when it comes to storyline, songs & characters was the Lion King.

Opening night of Disney on Ice was a big hit. This mama’s favorite part of the two-hour show was “It’s a Small World After all.” Kids swooned over the princesses, of course, and the Toy Story characters & Goofy driving the zamboni.

If you’re headed to the show this weekend, cue for the best time to run to the bathroom right before intermission is the Small World bit. Don’t forget: SouthernMamas.com readers receive 20% off tickets using code “mamas”!! VIP’s are not included.

Live Ear Tubes Surgery on Twitter

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

If your child has lots of ear infections, chances are your pediatrician has mentioned ear tubes as a possible solution.

You can find out all about ear tubes surgery Friday via a live surgery on Twitter.

More than 80 percent of children will have an ear infection before the age of 3.

If children are having recurrent ear infections or have fluid behind the ear drum that won’t go away, a doctor may recommend ear tubes.

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta performs thousands of ear tube procedures each year. With a surgical team dedicated to treating pediatric patients, Children’s specializes in kids. From the size of the equipment to the anesthesia (sleep medicine) to the pediatric-trained staff, Children’s is tailored to meet the specific needs of children.

Follow an ear tube surgery via the Children’s Twitter account, @ChildrensATL, Friday, Sept. 30 beginning at 7:30 a.m. and see the experiences – from anesthesia to recovery – a 1-year-old and her mom have during the procedure. For more information about ear tubes, visit www.choa.org/eartubes .
