It’s Week Four of preschool for our son and each morning that I’ve dropped him off he’s gone in with a smile on his face telling me, “I will see you after my lunch”. After him being at home with me for the last four years, I won’t deny we were worried when he began his first day but thankfully he proved us wrong and he loves it. Today though, he wasn’t so happy and it’s all because...

For me, spring is one of my favourite seasons because it brings new growth and new beginnings. This year though, I’m finding autumn is bringing me a new lease of life. Last week, our four-year-old son began preschool bringing much change to our home. For the last four years, I have been his primary carer and now for three hours a day, I will be sharing him with a local preschool. While I was...

The last few weeks I’ve had a weight loss battle going through my mind. Not the usual one of “I really need to lose more weight and get active” but the one of “I’m happier the way I am”. While there is nothing wrong with the later, I know that it’s not really the way I should be thinking – or is it? Over a year ago I began to lose weight and in all I’d lost over twenty pounds. I...

My mother is now gone as long as I’ve known her. On the 23 rd June she was gone 19 years – the same age I was when she passed away. There are times I’ve to pinch myself when I think she’s actually gone that long but the fact of the matter is, she is. With summer now here and as I watch my children enjoy playing outdoors, I’m reminded of a piece written by her which we found after her...

For nearly four years now I have been a stay-at-home mum (SAHM) to our two children. My eldest son will be four in July and his little sister is now 16 months. Tomorrow though could see this all change. Tomorrow I’m beginning a new journey – one to becoming a work-at-home mum! This new chapter fills me with both fear and excitement. For the last four years my focus has been our family and...

When our son was born in July 2011 it was such an amazing day. It was the day that my husband and I became a family. Since his birth I’ve always been grateful that I savoured every moment as best I could and I still do. Now nearly four years on I’d love nothing more than to press stop, hit rewind and play it all again. This August my son will be starting Montessori and while I’m looking...

I’m a date person. I love remembering dates for birthdays, milestones and anniversaries, and this week marked the anniversary of when I met my husband 11 years ago. I can’t help but look back on that day and cringe, while also feeling so lucky! I was off work for a couple of weeks after having a minor surgery and was spending time at my dad’s to recover. After a few days I found myself going...

As a mum I have to say one of my greatest joys is watching my children learn new things, forming new words and meeting their milestones. Like many parents we always like to think that our children are advanced and fantastic at learning! Then there comes a time when they begin to listen to everything we say and do, and we parents have to watch our ‘Ps and Qs,’ becoming masters of code and...

Last week I took advantage of having the car for the week while my husband was away for a few days for work. I was so excited to be able to get out driving and planned day trips to visit family and friends. On Thursday I visited a great friend of mine in Longford and her two beautiful daughters. I was really looking forward to seeing the three of them and finally meeting her youngest. When we...

I’ve always considered myself very lucky to be a stay-at-home mum. While it is financially challenging at times, for us it made the best sense. What I’ve found funny since becoming a stay-at-home mum is people’s perceptions. There are those that think we SAH mums keep coffee shops in business and others who think that it is such an easy job. For me and many others I know, this couldn’t be...
