Well, it's happened. April 21st came and went, and I've now turned 40 - it wasn't as bad as I was expecting! I'm not usually in anyway vain but, to be honest, I was a bit anxious about this particular birthday. I don't know whether it's a personal thing, a female thing or a silly thing, but I was silently counting down the months in dread, checking wrinkles and wondering if...

Like most families, we all go absolutely berserk at Christmas and as a country, we are one of the biggest spenders at this time of year. Shopping like crazy and spending all around us! I actually started my Christmas shopping in September, picking up bits and pieces so I wouldn't have a last minute panic! So now I'm, thankfully, all done and dusted. So, onto buying and giving to Jack (6...

Ireland has become a technical, modern country and I’m delighted to see so many people getting more high tech - it's great to be part of such a progressive island, and I'm so welcome to advancement. But three-, four-, five-year-old children with their own iPads, eyes glued to them in restaurants, at the park, in cars? I say, no way. Am I the only one living in the past where children...

Just three weeks into the summer holidays and I was already pretty exhausted ! Anyone feel the same? I sometimes feel like a holiday rep, standing in front of them after they’ve had their brekkie and announcing what we’re doing for the day in a very chirpy voice. I would consider myself to be an energenic, fun, lively mum with buckets of energy and ideas but my two children are slowly but...

Oh yes, my friends, this is one of those big unpleasant moments of toddlerhood. It's not easy - actually in our case it was absolute hell - but I can say that with some sheer determination, it is possible to rid your house of soothers. It won't easy and you probably won't sleep for a few nights but if I can do it then so can you. You just need to stand your ground! Oh and do it on a...

Other than family, no one will ever love our children as much as we do. It's impossible to comprehend because obviously our little darlings are beyond amazing, but while people might really, really, really like them and look after them properly, they don't love them in the same way that we do. They can't – it’s just not possible when they're not theirs! And that’s the first...

I actually think that we all need a routine of some sort; I know that I'm a lot happier when I know what I'm doing. I'm not in any way boring but I like to have a plan. Maybe it's a Taurean thing, but when it comes to babies, toddlers and children, I truly believe that routine is imperative. It's a must. Routine Babies are the happiest babies. From when Jack and Holly were...

I often joke that 'say please' and 'say thank you' will be on my gravestone as I say it to Jack (nearly five) and Holly (nearly three) at least 10 times a day. It’s actually become a part of me and my every day mantra! I really believe that it doesn't cost anything to smile, look someone in the eye and say thank you very much, to show that you are grateful and appreciative. I...

Why-oh-why is it so tricky to even consider having a third baby? Why does it involve so much thought, indecision and worry? The situation just isn't black and white and it can take months to make a final decision. Thousands of couples find themselves in this dilemma. For a lot of us, with your first and second baby, they are usually planned. You want one baby and then you want a brother or...

When you become a ‘Mum,’ it’s sometimes very hard to remember your life before - how you spent your time, what consumed you and who you were. I know that may sound bizarre but it’s true. In the early stages of becoming a parent and a mother, you become so consumed and involved with your baby that you forget about yourself totally. Or at least I did. It's like living in a little bubble...
