Terrible not-quite-twos and three-nage behaviour: Kirsty McCabe reports

Our intrepid weekly columnist gets to grips with the dreaded terrible two style tantrums. Will there always be tears before bedtime?

Something wonderful happens once the children are in bed. You can enjoy some peace and quiet, read a book, watch grown-up TV and maybe even have a glass of mummy juice (wine). Later, when you pop your head into their bedroom to check on them they look so peaceful and angelic, ...  Continue reading


Kirsty McCabe: "How to entertain kids on a rainy day"

Our weekly columnist shares her best entertainment ideas for the inevitable wet days ahead

Looking after children in the summer is relatively easy. Lots of fun outdoors, trips to the park, picnics, and so on. But when it rains, and you're stuck inside, it's not long before cabin fever sets in and tempers (usually mine) are somewhat frayed.

Minimise the chaos

Kirsty McCabe says: "Parenting one-upmanship? Don't get lost in 'Boastbook'"

Our weekly columnist hits the nail on the head with a roundup of the most irritating social media habits. Serial attention-seeking uploaders, take note...

"As much as I love social media for staying in touch with far-flung family and friends, it can leave me feeling a little bit deflated. The logical part of me knows that everybody self-edits, so what you read is a flattering view of somebody else's life. And thanks to fancy filters, ...  Continue reading


Kirsty McCabe's advice on: "How can I keep my children cool in the heat?"

Our weekly columnist, and weather presenter, advises ways to keep the kids cool in the face of an unexpected summer heatwave

Ah, the long hot hazy days of summer. Sitting outside on a balmy evening sipping a glass of wine. Well, that's how it used to be before my little people arrived. Now, it's trying to keep two grumpy wee boys cool and ideally fast asleep; even on a horribly humid night.

Kirsty McCabe enjoys a rare night (or two) off

Our weekly columnist discovers the benefits of waiting until the kids are asleep before attempting to reward yourself with a night off from parenting duties

Still, with a wedding anniversary (six years which is ...  Continue reading

Kirsty McCabe: "When I'm a parent, I will never…"

'I will never bore my non-parent friends with stories about my children' - Our weekly columnists remembers the resolutions she made before her children came along...

"When I was pregnant, I would look at other parents to see how they dealt with their offspring. Along with my husband we discussed what other people were clearly doing wrong, and came up with our list of things we will never do as parents. Turns out our 'I will never' ...  Continue reading
