OMG! I’m pregnant! I’m really pregnant! I’m going to be a mum to another baby! How weird is that? I’m totally excited and totally terrified both at the same time. I knew something was up as my period was...
There are some things that should absolutely remain unsaid when speaking to a pregnant woman, but unfortunately, if there’s one thing that makes people forget their manners or a woman’s need for personal space, it's pregnancy. So in no particular...

If you follow the blog, you know I had my first son J by vaginal birth (read here – a letter to my pregnant self) even though he weighed a whooping 9 lbs 12 oz. Logically, I expected I...
As a new mom, you may have a hard time knowing what you really need for your baby. I know I did. In fact, there is absolutely nothing more overwhelming than walking into a baby store as a first...
Okay, so I’m definitely not a “baby expert” but I must say that I have lots of baby gear / baby products and I have had ample time to try a lot of them out. So for all my preggo mamas who are...

Thankful Thursday…

It’s Thankful Thursday!!!! May be you don’t know but I’m big on Gratitude – that’s why I started this series a while ago as a reminder to focus on what we have rather than what we don’t have. It could be...

MEET THE AUTHOR

Hi I’m Oby O.

I am a full-time mom, full-time wife, a full-time lawyer and an aspiring professor. Currently, I find humour in my hectic life; combining a career as a lawyer with the blissful responsibility of raising a child.

I love my husband, who would be referred to here as The Hubbs and I adore my son who we call J. Together we make one big perfectly imperfect family.

If you enjoy having a good laugh over the joys and struggles of motherhood, you came to the right place.

Disclaimer: I am not a baby-expert nor pediatrician; content is based on my personal life and consequent opinion.

Love & Light,

Oby O.
