My husband recently said that I need a hobby. So I think I’ll start by keeping a blog. Again. Documenting the many frustrations and surprises of First Time Motherhood and Temporary Stay-at-home-mom-ness. My name is Jody. I’m 30 this year, and live in Los Angeles with my husband, daughter and a couple of dogs. In my (little) spare time, I guest blog here. My daughter, Olive, was born on Thanksgiving morning in 2012. She is my first child, and the light of my life. She is also the most challenging person I’ve ever come across. So here we go, welcome to my blog.
