Estelle is a winner of Top 25 Family Blogs by Moms - 2012
What's your favorite thing to do on family night?
We all like to hang out together on our King Size bed and watch TV, or a movie. My husband and I don't mind cartoons (although Dora can be quite annoying), and actually adore movies favored by our three-and-a-half year old like Shrek, Despicable Me, and Cars, so it works out for everyone.
What has surprised you most about motherhood?
That I had to totally reinvent myself in every way, after becoming a mother. Everything changed: my career, my body, the way I felt about myself, my circle of friends, my interest in politics and mothers' and women's issues--just every aspect of my life was touched by this enormous transition.
What's your favorite game to play as a family?
We like playing Candyland, but mostly we enjoy putting puzzles together. I stick to putting together the pieces for the borders and my daughter and husband work on the inside pieces. I especially like puzzles because they require neither electricity or WI-FI, and are a good way to build my daughter's ability to concentrate and problem solve.

I am looking forward to the continued development of my daughter as she completes another year of preschool and continues her quest for independence under the mistaken belief that she is fifteen years old instead of her actual age of three and a half.
