Datetime current year and month in Python

I must have the current year and month in datetime.

I use this:

    datem = datetime.today().strftime("%Y-%m")
    datem = datetime.strptime(datem, "%Y-%m")

Is there maybe another way?

Use: import datetime today = datetime.datetime.today() datem = datetime(today.year, today.month, 1)

I assume you want the first of the month.
