About Me

My name is Reedu Taha Wood and I was born in Nigeria, raised on Long Island and became a mom in Brooklyn. I am a mother, but I am also very passionate about animal rescue and protection. Which means that if I bump into you on the street, I’ll admire your baby but what I really want to talk about is your dog.

I have been processing my mental laundry on morning runs for over 15 years. The load seems to be endless, though, and so I turn to this blog to work on the hard-to-get-out stains. My 30-hour drug-free labor unexpectedly turned me into a natural birth advocate and I breastfed my son far longer than I ever planned. Becoming a mom has a way of making you do things you never thought you would.

But I’m not just serving up reheated breast milk here.

I have a deep appreciation for cold beer, affordable fashion, wifi in the sky and being on the beach. I find the Weather Channel strangely comforting and am still mourning the end of HBO’s Six Feet Under.

I share my home with my best friend, lover, husband and babydaddy, Jason, our son Mylo, our daughter Reya, our handicapped Pit Bull Ella, a funny-looking Belgian Griffon named Griffie, and Franklin, our unusually large ficus tree. Yes, in this busy Brooklyn home, even the plants have names!
