Raising a family in Ireland2day is challenging, exciting, stressful..but ultimately rewarding.

Raising two young boys is a constant reminder of my own early years. I didn’t have a brother so I’m jealous of them right from the start. We just try to bring them up as best we can.

After all we didn’t go to ‘parenting’ school, and I don’t remember ever sending them to ‘being a kid’ school. So I guess we have to give each other a break from time to time.

I like to think we live our lives based on the following two inspirational quotes:

1. “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once and a while, you could miss it”.

2. ” The worst thing about good times is that they always end. Happily, the same can be said about the bad times”.
