Not much computer time lately, but just wanted to inquire about moving to another board when this one's done...

Mom to Andrew (March 1, 2004), Cameron (July 19, 2007) and #3 due in early June.

My old DDC had 6 mo. (after the DDC month was over) before we had to move. We just stayed in the MDC DDC till time ran out.

It's so sad to think about moving! I haven't been as active in our DDC as I would have like to have been, but it's still gone by so fast! How is it that April 2008 has a DDC now?!?! : Time flies!

It looks like we're being phased out though. We're the "oldest" DDC in the list.

I noticed that too. I wonder if we'll get notice before they close the forum?

But just to keep things moving, perhaps we need to revisit the new board concept, and get a list of who might be interested so we can facilitate a switch...

Oh, yeah, I never "signed up" before but I'm definitely interested in being included in a new board... I've never been so chatty online before (and I realize I'm not even that chatty by some people's standards! )-- but thanks to you guys I'm actually approaching 1000 posts (I think I was under 400 when I found out I was pg!). I like our DDC!!

Mommy to two boys, ages 4 and 6.

I still have the Yahoo Group set up if we want to talk about it there. Always good to have a back-up if the new board goes down. Forum Circle is free & easy.

Barb, if you're willing to administer and send out invites to those who aren't yet signed up, etc, maybe we can start the slow move over there to see how we like it?

Can I join the new group too? I know I don't get a chance to post often, but I'm hoping I'll have more time once my oldest starts kindergarten and I love how our babes will all be the same age/going through the same stuff!

Maybe everyone knows by now that Charlotte has Down Syndrome. I have been led to many wonderful groups concerning DSyn and while I find them helpful, I would really like to be in a group with all you mamas with same-age non-DSyn babies. It would help me assess my own baby's developmental progress but on the flip side of that, I don't want to always be thinking about DSyn (let's just talk normal baby stuff!) -- most of the time we forget she even has it and I'd like to keep it that way for as long as possible!

How about just **Summerbabies** or some variation thereof?
