As we head toward Thanksgiving, I'm reminded how food has played a role in my life.

I intended to write a Worst Mom’s List, which included the obvious suspects – Octomom, Balloon Boy Mom, etc. (Kate Gosselin, you got lucky). The list got fairly long when I realized that all of these moms got so much press and attention that they didn’t need me to give them more of the spotlight. Instead, I found some truly amazing, exceptional women, who also happen to be moms.

The kids our out of school and your babysitter already has party plans. What’s a parent to do? Here are some options for New Year’s Eve fun for the whole family: BALLOON DROP AT ADVENTURE LANDING: The family-style New Year's Eve celebration offers children ages 12 and younger "all-you-can-play" miniature golf, laser tag and go-karts.

Welcome to mom2momdfw.com! My name is Maricar Estrella and I am one of the administrators/bloggers for this web site. When I married my husband, I became part of a blended family. I have two stepsons, a twentysomething and 8-year-old, and two stepgranddaughters. I’m not going to lie to you; it hasn’t always been easy being “the stepmom.”
