"My 9 year old and 11 year old took snowboarding lessons also.  At this point, we all are beginners.  I was surprised that I liked it.  It was really hard staying up the first 20 minutes.  Big fun though."

A little about yourself...
I am the mother of three wonderful children(Patrick 10, Alex 7, Matthew 4) and married to a terrific guy named Patrick. Our life is awesome and crazy at the same time. Can you relate?

I am the author of Time for mom-Me:5 Essential Strategies for A Mother's Self-Care and the founder of Finding Definitions,LLC(www.findingdefinitions.com). Finding Definitions, LLC is a community created to empower mothers to practice better self-care.

Upon reading my book, mothers are encouraged to start a local Time for mom-Me self-care group. Each group is supported with self-care assignments, fellowship and fun. The goal is to create an supportive environment that encourages mothers to be accountable to themselves.

We currently have 26 Time for mom-Me groups in 8 different states. My vision is to have one million moms using the program by December 2010 in all fifty states. Whew!!

I am the Baltimore Parenting Examiner for www.Examiner.com and write column for Family Digest Magazine.

I spend my days and nights talking about the importance of a mother's own self-care to any and everyone that will listen. I am a frequent contributor and have been featured on NPR, The Darla Shine Show, CNN.com, ABC Channel 2 news and a host of other national media.

My greatest passion is getting mothers to commit to their own self-care. I am a woman on a mission. Check me out at www.timeformom-me.com or at www.findingdefinitions.com.

How will you make this New Year count?

I decided to take a well deserved break for a few weeks during the holiday. We attempted to balance holiday festivities, a family death and entertaining with a few friends. I can honestly say to you all that I gave up my superwoman's position along time ago. I did as little as I could this holiday out of obligation, responsibility and tradition. This family needed rest. Santa brought us lots of opportunity to regroup, resort and release. It was wonderful.

We are now ready to Rock… Continue
