About Henry’s Mom & Dad
Hi, I’m Shelley… Henry’s mama.
A stay-at-home mom, Henry is my only little guy. I’m married to my wonderful hubby, Shawn and together we live in Burnaby, BC Canada.
I used to work in the Hospitality and Tourism industry, first in hotel management and then teaching at the post-secondary level. I still maintain my connections and education and plan to one day return teaching part-time. Until then, I’m a full-time stay-at-home mom. It was a big adjustment not to have a “career” outside the house (and one I’m still working on) but I’m so glad that we are fortunate enough to be able to do this. Shawn & I both share the priority to stay home with our kids, so make decisions to support this.
As I recent told our pediatrician, as a stay-at-home mom, I have nothing better to do than to learn how to make homemade formula! (not quite true… but it showed my determination to try!). I’m actually quite enjoying the challenge of learning all I can about making his formula.
Shawn is a software engineer and is currently working on a project focused on hearing aids. His career allows him to work at the office part-time and at home part-time. He also loves long-distance cycling and just completed his first half-marathon!
While this mission (and I use the term aptly… it sure feels like a mission!) is shared by both of us, I am the one who is taking the lead. This is partly because I am the one who is home full time and partly because this is was my hair-brained idea to begin with! :).
