Life with Dudes never looked so pretty!
Amanda Rodriguez has been telling stories about mom life since 2001. To make it official, she launched her parenting blog, DudeMom.com, in 2008 and has been entertaining parents with her unsolicited, but strangely useful advice ever since.
On December 31, 2019, her first parenting book, 50 Things to Do in Baby's First Year, was published. It has been well received by both new moms and those who accidentally stumbled across it desperate to break up the monotony of quarantine.
When not writing about life with kids, Amanda can be found actively parenting three of them from her home in Frederick, Maryland where she's raising them with the help of her husband and two insanely bossy dogs. Amanda also does digital marketing for small businesses and occasionally takes photos for other people. Most of her free time is spent learning cool dances on TikTok. 💃🏽
