You can check out the Dallas Mamapalooza website or to learn about this mammoth mama movement, go to the national organizing website. Dallas is the only city in Texas doing Mamapalooza this year.

Speaking of rock and roll mothers, there's a community of punk rock moms in Austin too. My friend, Diana Garcia, is a bilingual ed teacher, and her rad daughter Lulu is a fearless and amazing kid. Diana has played with bands Coz the Shroom and the Girl Robots, hangs out with other punk rock moms, and is one of Texas' major purveyors of mail art.

Love your mama extra-special this Sunday!
