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.
