Mix and Match Welcomes You

Hello, people of the world, and welcome to the glorious beginning of our Mix and Match Family blog. We are so excited to start sharing the ups and downs of our unique life with you, and we are hopeful that our story may have a positive impact on you as you are travelling on your own journey through life.

So then, please let me introduce myself.

My name is Jennifer – Jen, if you will – and I am proud to say that I am a wife and a mother and, on most days, a ridiculous language enthusiast. That means I like languages very, very (way too) much. But I digress.

My husband, Humberto, by birth and by right, is Mexican, hailing from a small city in Northern Mexico. I, on the other hand, am staunchly Canadian, with many terribly cold winters of experience under my belt. Through sheer chance, he and I met (twice), grew closer, and did what any sane couple who wants a baby would do: we had one 🙂

And so, out pops little Kiara Valeria (this wasn’t so quick as I made it sound, I assure you), and the journey of our lifetime begins. That was just over a year ago, and the trek into parenthood for us wasn’t easy, as is similar with most first-time parents. Valeria was a feisty baby, but she taught me (drilled into my skull) that there is nothing more important in life than her, and she would be proud to tell you that mommy has finally accepted that fact into her soul.

Humberto and Baby Vale <3

So now, here we are, with a just-as-feisty toddler, sometimes feeling overwhelmed by the speed of her progress and always feeling overjoyed by it, if not a little bit tired because of it (practically debilitated), and every day with her is a new adventure.

Being a racially-, linguistically-, and culturally-mixed family, our day-to-day experiences can sometimes be funny or frustrating or hilariously entertaining in ways I would never have expected, and we found it only fitting to open our home and our lives to anyone who wants to share our experiences with us. So join us in this silly little thing called life, and we would be happy to show you around.

-Jen

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically
    tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for
    quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like
    this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

      I haven’t encountered any yet either (that I don’t have to pay for), but if I happen to, I will let you know.
      Also let me know if you happen to as well lol. That would be very convenient.
      Thank you for reading! I’m glad you enjoyed it.

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your weblog.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?

    A number of my blog readers have complained about my site not
    working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.
    Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?

      Unfortunately, because I use a theme generated for my website through WordPress, I haven’t seen any of my own problems thus far, so I wouldn’t know.
      I wish I could help. Sorry!

    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be
    a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

      My husband and I laughed so hard at this. Completely off topic, but entertaining for sure 😂

    I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great.
    I do not know who you are but definitely you are going to a famous blogger if you are not already
    😉 Cheers!

      That is very kind of you to say, and extremely generous lol. I’m glad you stumbled upon my writing, and I’m even happier that you liked it.
      Stop by again! It will only get better.
      Have a great day!
      Thank you for the comment 🙂

    Howdy! Quick question that’s totally off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My web site looks weird when browsing from
    my iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. With thanks!

      For my blog, I am currently using a WordPress engine, so it automatically calibrates everything for me (thank goodness).
      There is a way, as I did it a couple years ago for another page I have, but I can’t for the life of me remember what the coding was for it.
      Are you using a webhost that has a pre-loaded editor, or are you doing all the coding yourself?
