what we need to do is come up with a list of dates, one week each, maybe monday-sunday?

then everyone can sign up for the date they want.

It was suggested that we just go ahead and double up all the weeks- we were doing it already, and it will help us all get to know each other sooner, so I went ahead and adjusted the schedule. Basically I moved the latest mamas into earlier slots. This also frees up more time for mamas who still want to join- can't believe how many we have participating- it's great!
Anyway, I think we're up to date now, but like I said, some dates (only mamas in November and December) have been moved, so please let me know if the date I have down doesn't work for you. Looking forward to getting to know everyone better!

ein328, please DO hijack! I want us to have one, but I don't necessarily want to run it

If you want to put me down for June 14-20, I should be finding out the sex on the 16th, so I'll maybe have more answers that week. I think I'll be one of the first few to know the sex since I am due Dec 1st.

Done and done :-)

I don't mind doing it...just didn't want you to think I was stealing it from you!

Every Monday morning I'll just start a new thread with the title "Spotlight On: whoever" and the first post will have the standard questions.

Still need help coming up with those questions, though!

Cindy, it's where each week we spotlight a different person from the DDC and we get to ask that person questions (preset Qs but also can add, I think) it's to get to know each other better. It's good times, I have seen it in other DDCs (and learned about a few people I know in other DDCs).

Ein, I am in, I would like sometime in July so I can find out the sex, too! (maybe!)
