The topics of our week! We were headed into holiday mode when the news broke about the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Connecticut. As moms we have to put our feelings out there with everybody else. We do this in conversation hopefully putting a little bit different perspective into it. We hope something we say makes a difference for you, if not, leave it on the shelf.

About Mom Time TV
Sharon spent her early adult years moving around the country and working in the television industry. During her career, she worked at 7 television stations managing the promotion, creative services and special events area where she produced station campaigns, advertising, graphics and special events like the welcome Monday Night Football got in Indianapolis on halloween night.
After getting married and starting a family, Sharon gave up her career in order to spend time with her kids and pursue other interests. Sharon and her husband have 5 children. They are in the unique position of having 4 teenagers living in the house and 5 kids in 4 different schools...elementary, middle school, high school and college.
In 2002, Sharon came up with an idea to help herself and other moms have more fun in their motherhood roles. She created Mom Time TV, a half hour television show where moms of all ages and stages could share their stories, advice and ideas to make motherhood a more positive and productive experience. At the time Sharon conceived the idea, there were no mom shows, bloggers, social networks or any type of interaction for moms. The TV show was a tough sell to TV decision makers. It wasn't until July 2009 where the show finally hit the air on AZTV in Phoenix. During it's six month run, Sharon's company Peak2Peak Productions produced 122 half hour shows which ran Monday through Friday.
As the internet continued to grow, Sharon's goal became to make the show an integral program on the internet where it could reach a larger audience that could respond and participate in the show.
Mom Time TV is all about moms. The things we do, the things we think, the decisions we make and what makes us tick. There is a great spirit of pride in being a mom, but it doesn't come without fear, failure and fatigue. And the endless question...am I doing this right? Am I the best mom I can be? Can I overcome this mistake or that one?
We're always pregnant with the perfect child and we have perfect plans to be the perfect parent. But it's not long after our child arrives that we realize it's not nearly everything we thought it would be. And so we go on...acting like we're perfect but frustrated by our flaws, looking good on the outside and holding some measure of misery inside.
We're women...we talk. It's a scientific fact that that's the key to our happiness (and survival). But often when we become moms our base of friends changes or disappears. If we've left jobs, we've also left our comfort zone and our fellow commiserators. And we're often alone.
Mom Time TV is all about talk, stories, what worked, what didn't. Knowing we're not alone and accepting help from each other along the way. Taking refuge in the force rather than the farce. Living the life and loving it, because we're not alone.
The Mom Time TV radio show is comprised of all different moms with all different experiences sharing our stories, successes, failures and allowing the listener/participant to decide if it makes sense to them and what to pick up on versus what to leave behind. Because we're all different...and our decisions are all based on our own facts. A lively, fun discussion of motherhood and making it as a mom.
