Meet the Bear

by mssinglemama on May 28, 2009

I can’t be sure but I think you are all going to like him as much as I do…

Click here to watch the video. He comes in near the end, so bear with us.

UPDATE: Here  are more pictures from the trip.

And here are those eyes I’ve been raving about.


There aren’t many words for any of this.


For more on where this Bear fellow came from…

if you’d like a sweet bear for yourself you may want to start by watching my single mom dating advice videos.

I agree Moth Man is creepy, of course I watch a documentary on it.

The Bear is freaking adorable! WooHoo MsSingleMama

Sheila May 28, 2009 at 7:32 pm

P.S. You are pure proof that you meet someone special when you least expect it, and when you're doing somethign you love. :)


mssinglemama May 29, 2009 at 11:02 pm

Definitely. I was just chugging along – following my passion and then boom – there he appeared.


Single Mom Diva May 28, 2009 at 7:32 pm

You are inspiration to many! Glad that the Bear is treating you good…and that Moth Man is scary!!


deadlindy May 28, 2009 at 7:35 pm

Awww, he is so dang cute!!! I love the sound of his voice! So happy for you!


Erin May 28, 2009 at 8:18 pm

Wow, he really is great. His eyes are incredible. So excited for you!


Brittni May 28, 2009 at 8:21 pm

This is so adorable!!! And so is the Bear! I have the giggles just watching you two together. You're right, he is very sweet.

Very happy for you. Thanks for letting us FINALLY meet the Bear!


BriBedell May 28, 2009 at 8:29 pm

OoOoooo hunny is he adorable or what! I love his personality! He is very funny….mankini = priceless :)


Danielle May 28, 2009 at 8:35 pm

OH, Big Bear hug to you both!!! You make a beautiful couple.


Mary May 28, 2009 at 8:58 pm

Absolutely adorable! Congrats to you both! :)


Notesfromthegrove May 28, 2009 at 8:59 pm

Wow, he's TOTALLY adorable. So happy for you!


Speedgirl May 28, 2009 at 10:35 pm

Does he have a brother? I know there are usually a few cubs in each bear family :)


mssinglemama May 29, 2009 at 11:03 pm

He does… the Bear's brother is single and lives in New York City. ; )


Speedgirl May 29, 2009 at 11:41 pm

I'm single and live in Michigan. But I LOVE road trips :)


Lauren May 28, 2009 at 10:54 pm

We always drive right by Point Pleasant when we visit my relatives in WV! And I drove by that chemical plant in KY back in December (I wanted to go for a little drive and Anna needed a nap, so I drove across the border and back so that I could tell Anna that she's been to KY)

The Bear is so cute! And I second what Speedgirl said… perhaps he has a YOUNGER brother?


mssinglemama May 29, 2009 at 11:04 pm

You do? We need to meet… next time you are coming through let me know.


Janet May 28, 2009 at 11:06 pm

I got such a good vibe from him…he seems like a geniuinely nice, caring person. And I love his sense of humor too. Mankini. lol :)


junctionmama May 28, 2009 at 11:21 pm

A bear through and through :)


Abby Carter May 28, 2009 at 11:29 pm

We think he's pretty cute, but final decision will be based on the "mankini" posting ;) Well done Bear. That was a hot seat you were in, and you shone.


Canadian Bald Guy May 28, 2009 at 11:37 pm

WOW…love the video. Extremely well done!!

And Bear? Yeah…he seems like a great guy. And thankfully you let him call you by your real name. Because, y'know, in the throws of passion…yelling out "OH MS SINGLE MAMA" might get a bit awkward.

Just sayin'.

Did I mention how impressed I was with the video? Heh…

Heather May 29, 2009 at 1:53 am

Hawt! :-D Love the video!


NewSingleMama May 29, 2009 at 2:47 am

He reminds me of Chris Pontius from Jackass. How long have you guys been dating?


mssinglemama May 29, 2009 at 11:04 pm

Just 4.5 weeks… never seen Jackass but I'll tell him.


MME May 29, 2009 at 3:05 am

he's a cutie cute cute and smart too! :)


amy May 29, 2009 at 3:32 am

Bear you seem like a sweetheart, the type I married :) Just stay tame and be good to Ms Single Mama or we will all stalk and find you in the woods and oh.. shoot you or something :)

Alaina he IS a sweetheart :) Great video!


mssinglemama May 29, 2009 at 3:29 pm

Funny… SO funny.


Anne May 29, 2009 at 4:22 am

He is cute! Love his eyes!!
Love the video! It is adorable!


Amber Warren May 29, 2009 at 4:56 am

He's SOOOO cute. I'm so excited for you two!


LiLi May 29, 2009 at 5:10 am

He's a total sweetheart. Good for you. :)


Tina May 29, 2009 at 2:20 pm

Adorbs. Absolutely Adorbs.


bsmommy99 May 29, 2009 at 2:29 pm

Loved the video Alaina! You two seem very relaxed and comfortable around each other and most importantly, you have FUN together! I'm very happy for you. And especially at the prospects for your future. AND you seem so much fun, that I know if you lived anywhere near me, we'd totally hang out!


mssinglemama May 29, 2009 at 3:28 pm

I'm sure we would! And yes, we have tons of fun together – very, very important, right?


SingMominNewEngland May 29, 2009 at 2:41 pm

Oooo I love the Bear – mainly for the happiness he is bringing you. :) cheers!


mssinglemama May 29, 2009 at 3:28 pm

So glad you like him!


MindyMom May 29, 2009 at 3:30 pm

What a sweetie. So happy for you.


Tishia Lee May 29, 2009 at 3:31 pm

He's very handsome and he looks very laid back, easy going and down to earth. I'm happy for ya :-)


Katherine SOLOdotMOM May 29, 2009 at 3:45 pm

Loved the video… you guys did great!

Thanks for letting us meet him!


Saba May 29, 2009 at 4:15 pm

So Sweet ! Good catch Alaina!!


Amber May 29, 2009 at 11:31 pm

HOT. He is adorable. And this lets me believe there is hope for me and my daughter to find a bear of our own!


expatsinglemama May 30, 2009 at 7:13 am

My three year old LOVES to drive our car too. And my two year old can actually get the key in the ignition. Scary. She can't turn it yet, though, thank goodness.

Love the bear. Keeper.

Mothman. Scary. Man in trinket store who seemed to believe he was real. Even scarier.

Your midwestern accent–so cute and makes me miss my fam in the STL.


Jenna May 30, 2009 at 4:59 pm

He is such a sweetheart, you are so very lucky to stumble across him. I was so glad to see that he told the single mama's to not take dating with a child as a shortcoming and rather as a blessing.


Angel May 30, 2009 at 11:53 pm

Hey girl! Long time "stalker" that barely leaves comments. This was in our newspaper, but of course I already knew about the movement from my lovely Alaina!
Much love!


Momartfully June 3, 2009 at 6:13 am

He is very CUTE!
I loved what he said about dating single moms.
Lucky, lucky girl.

Benjamin in the car at the beginning… so familiar LOL!
So happy for you.


Manic Mommy June 11, 2009 at 7:47 pm

Yep, you got yourself a 'goodern' … that's Kentucky speak for "good one."
