Get to Know Us!

I have talked about our adoption story in a few places on this blog; Here, here, here and here (to be exact!)

In the last couple of years, a lot has changed about our family, so please allow me to introduce us, as we are today:

Me: Here, on the interweb, I go by Mama Bear. I'm a wife to
Hubby and a Mom to Buddy, which are by far my most important roles. I'm also a health care professional. This year, I have seen my team grow from 2 to 30+ and I am still trying to figure out how to manage that. I am also an introvert who loves reading, Netflix and podcasts. My perfect night is staying in, listening to Gilmore Guys, watching Jessica Jones and reading the latest by Irvine Welsh or Chuck Palahniuk.

Hubby: My husband is one of the hardest working, most selfless people I know. He is a go-to in his profession and he does so much for our family. I honestly don't know what I would do without him. He is an amazing husband and father. It has been a joy to watch him bond with Buddy over the last 2 years. He is also a music snob (which is great because I constantly have something new to listen to) who reads the only books I don't (biographies and non-fiction),

Buddy: My Sweet Boy is the missing piece of my heart. He is entering his teen years with a balance of stubbornness, bravery and forgetfulness that is uniquely his own. Buddy drives me crazy / melts my heart a million times a day. He loves pizza, zombies and video games. Buddy is outgoing, athletic and is one of the most charming people I have ever met, bar none. Although he has been in Canada for over 2 years, Buddy's love of potatoes will always give away his Eastern European heritage.

Swar and Grem: Our two dogs. They are both hot messes, in their own ways. Swar is a 15-year-old pug with no teeth, arthritis and a bad attitude. Grem is a puggle (that's a beagle / pug cross which is as bad an idea as it sounds) is a hyperactive cuddle-bug who currently has a bad case of kennel-cough. *punctuated by a round of coughing from Grem* They drive us all around the bend and smell terrible no matter how often we bath them and what expensive food we feed them. And they are family.

So, that's us. It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance!

  1. I loved reading this post and getting reacquainted with you and your family! I had never heard of Gilmore Guys and at first thought it was a typo or autocorrect mistake. Googled it and oh my goodness I must listen! It sounds amazing. Can't wait to read more about your family this year. I really appreciated your posts last year and have started using one of your comments when people ask about "real moms"
