    TODDLER TALES IN VIP MAGAZINE – PRESCHOOL RULES

      Well it’s been a rollercoaster of emotions in this house with a lot of changes happening. James recently moved up to the preschool room to prepare for September. When I asked what the difference was he said in preschool there’s no biting, no hitting, no slapping and you have to listen. My immediate reaction… Continue reading TODDLER TALES IN VIP MAGAZINE – PRESCHOOL RULES

    VIP Magazine – I’m finally happy

    VIP MAGAZINE PARENTING COLUMN

    Toddlers and questions?? Wow I honestly never expected so many. I have heard about the ‘but why?’ and ‘what’s that?’ but I really believe that James is taking it to another level. We were driving past St Patrick’s Cathedral and he asked what it was. I said it was a large church called a cathedral… Continue reading VIP MAGAZINE PARENTING COLUMN

    VIP MAGAZINE PARENTING MAY 7TH

    Why can’t I ever do things by halves?? I was complaining to Sarah Mac Lachlann from Pilates Performance that I didn’t feel I was getting results quick enough and she informed me I actually needed to make my classes. Hmm I thought, now that makes sense!! I decided to do three classes in a row… Continue reading VIP MAGAZINE PARENTING MAY 7TH

    VIP MAGAZINE PARENTING APRIL 23RD

    Well if you had told me 3 years ago I would be unable to sleep because I was so excited about going to a baby fair I would have had you committed…. No, really I would and so would anyone who knows me! However that is simply what happened last week. I just returned from… Continue reading VIP MAGAZINE PARENTING APRIL 23RD

    VIP PARENTING COLUMN 17TH APRIL

    I’m trying to figure out why my bladder is so near my eyes these days. I often think because I buried my emotions for so long there was a backlog of tears or else I’m simply drinking to much… water that is!!! I had a crap birthday; no ones fault and I was feeling really… Continue reading VIP PARENTING COLUMN 17TH APRIL

    VIP MAGAZINE PARENTING March 26th

    Last week as I was driving James to crèche and a very strange thing happened. James started screaming: “Ouch Mummy it hurts. It’s so bright.  Make it go away.” The first thing any paranoid freak of a mother like me thinks about is meningitis. But being in Ireland the actual culprit here was the sun.… Continue reading VIP MAGAZINE PARENTING March 26th

    VIP MAGAZINE PARENTING March 12th

    Trips to the doctor, antibiotics and a lot less money in my pocket now. As a parent in Ireland sometimes you literally can’t breathe without spending money. To top it off my friend in London who’s a working Mum of two proudly declared that her childcare is free and oh yeah so is the doctor.… Continue reading VIP MAGAZINE PARENTING March 12th

    VIP PARENTING MAGAZINE 28th Feb

    So much happening all at once and that goes for the weather too. The fleeting glance of white powder that initially makes everything look beautiful, fresh and clean was the highlight of James life (so far). Snow, I announced and ‘doe’ as he calls it has never been given such a welcome. First he tread… Continue reading VIP PARENTING MAGAZINE 28th Feb

    VIP MAGAZINE – PARENTING COLUMN 12TH FEB

    Temporary reward schemes (jellies, I’m desperate), bribary, late nights working, eating crap food, no exercise, washing not done, lost all my accounts on my computer…. You might have guessed it my healthy and organized start to the year has not just gone wrong but completely bonkers off the wall kind of wrong. James tugs (hugs)… Continue reading VIP MAGAZINE – PARENTING COLUMN 12TH FEB
