I wish we didn't have another forum. Not that I don't appreciate the sentiment, but my last DDC did that, too, and it gets too hard to keep up with two different forums. Why can't we just have a thread in LWAB when it is time? I just don't have the time to be checking two different boards.

I'll be staying here too. I really can't spend any more time online.

See you on LWAB.

I am really bad with keeping up with both seperate boards AND "one" threads but I'll pop into both every once in awhile.

Ya, I find it a bit confusing. I didn't have any time before my May baby was born (or directly after) to visit MDC and post - but now that I have some time I was excited about chatting with other moms about this, that and the other. And then I couldn't find anyone, and found out about the DDC forum. But honestly, now that I think about it, I don't think I can keep track of two places.

So anyone with a May babe who wants to chat in MDC .... LET'S TALK

I have a thread on LWAB....

Not that I think there is anything wrong with having another forum - I'm just not really operating on all cylinders right now and probably wouldn't be able to keep up!

I just wish we could keep the DDC. I don't like the one thread thing because if you miss a few days it takes forever to get through all the posts you missed and I always end up quitting before I'm done.

But I'm going to try - I'm going back to work on Friday and I'll have time to waste in both places unfortunately.

This said, I have not been on MDC since I announced E's birth and all I've done on the new board is look at and post baby pics - and the last time was weeks ago.
