We travel a lot of the year and when we're not living the life of nomads, we reside in Ontario, Canada. We speak English, Spanish and French and love the words Acceptance, Compassion and Empathy.
I'm Sarah, the Author of this blog. I used to say that I was a "Zookeeper" but people thought that I really was one. I'm not. Although it seems like it sometimes.
Blogging, talking and crafts are my favourite pursuits. I'm sarcastic and almost always joking.
I try to remember that Life is Short.
I became a Mother for the first (and last) time when I gave birth to Triplets in December 2009; Alexander, Maximilian and Artemis. Sadly, Alexander passed away. This is our Journey.
The other Zookeeper is Ed. When he isn't sitting at his computer bringing home the bacon he likes to be in his workshop making (or breaking) things. Ed is really private (and follically challenged).
Alexander was named after "Alexander the Great" 356BC-323BC. He is our first-born King, and considered to be one of history's most successful commanders. After a valiant fight, Alexander passed away from "Necrotizing Enterocolitis, NEC".
We miss him every minute. Alexander and Max are identical (mono/dizygotic) twins.
Max(imilian) was named after "Maximilian the Emperor" 1459-1519 and is second in-line to the throne. His interests include catapulting things into the air, determining what fits in electrical outlets and deconstructing everything.
He is his Father's son.
Artemis was named after "Artemis the Goddess" of Ancient Greece.
She loves puzzles, looking after others and ensuring that everything is as it should be. If not, she'll let you know.
Don't try to call her "Artie" or "Missy" or I'll let you know.
She is her Mother's daughter.
Aries, usually referred to as "Aries the Cat" is the Matriarch of the Family. She was born in the month of April making her born under "The Ram" Zodiac sign, hence her name.
Don't let the fact that she's an American Staffordshire Bull Terrier scare you as she is gentle, kind and loved by all.
He has multiple health issues but what he lacks in brains he makes up for in enthusiasm.
He is a Boxer after all.
Welcome to The Zoo!
