My kids are always snacking and it’s driving me mad!

My kids are always snacking

My kids are always snacking – My kids are always snacking 

I love food as much as the next person. In fact I probably love it more than most but not as much as my kids do. Having talked to many other mums about this, it seems to be a thing with children. However, if I hear ‘I want a snack’ or ‘I’m starving’ one more time, I might just land one of the kids in to the field next door due to a kick in the arse! My kids are always snacking or looking for snacks and I’m so so fed up of it!  Continue reading

Being a stay at home mum – how I’m finding it

Being a stay at home mum

Being a stay at home mum – my last house must have been an awful tip altogether!

I’m over two months in to my new life being a stay at home mum so I thought I’d give you all an update on how the new full time job is going! I don’t really count the first month because I was so consumed with getting everything organised and done for the move. However, I’m over a month in the new place and everyday life is settling down.  Continue reading

I’m now a stay at home mammy

I never thought I was cut out to be a stay at home mammy. In fact I didn’t really want to be. Hell, I even wrote a whole blog post about it. That was then but here I am some two years on and I’m exactly what I didn’t want to be. Except I changed my mind.  Continue reading

SpotOn Football – a genius product for young GAA players

SpotOn Football

Aidan with his SpotOn Football

If you haven’t guessed it, the GAA is king in our house. I love it. Daddy Chambers loves it. Aidan loves it and Sarah is getting there. I’m totally chuffed that Aidan is passionate about playing football. I want sport to play a huge part in the kids’ lives. I want them to enjoy it but to enjoy it I firmly believe kids have to be decent at it.  Continue reading

Soccer stars don’t get a look in with my local GAA mad child

GAA mad child

My GAA mad child: Aidan was over the moon to meet one of his heroes, Moorefield’s David Whyte, recently

I was raised on sidelines. I was fed sport from an early age. I was a GAA mad child and it, and sport, consumed my father’s life. He ran marathons, he cycled, but when I was a small one, it was the GAA that trumped all in our house. Walterstown GAA in rural Co Meath to be precise.  Continue reading
