Hi Mamas!

 

So I have been loving the DDC!  I know it will be disbanded a few months after our babes arrive.

 

Where will you be hanging out on the boards?

 

Life with Babe?

Breastfeeding?

Other places?

 

It's been so great to have this little community place.  I'll be sad to lose it.

can't say where i'll be hanging out the most (will depend on my needs and interests).  it will be weird to not have an automatic go to like the ddc (where i spend most of my time now). 

 

i've noticed that many ddcs keep their groups alive in the ages and stages forum.  so, in life with a babe someone could start a thread...may 2011 babes are now 1 month old or something like that.  just so we all have a place to find each other.

yeah we did that for awhile in the last DDC i was in...then we ended up making our own forum for a few years, and then everyone got facebook. i think we should just make a facebook group and have one in life with a babe as well?

I'd be down for a group. I'm kind of a facebook junkie, so I'd be cool being an admin (though I don't know what my access will be like after we move to Oz)

 

Maybe call it May 2011 Babies or MDC DDC May 2011 continued or .......

I would vote group. I have too many friends who update with nonsense that I'm afraid your baby updates would get lost.

i like the idea of a group too.  also gives us the chance to have a live chat just among the group.

k i started a group that we can edit the name of and started friending people to add to it.
i'm facebook.com/ryeporritt so add me and i'll add you to the group! we don't have to start chatting in it yet, i just think we aren't going to want to set it up with newborns :P
i like that we can have a live chat also and that we can add photos! it's a closed group so nobody can see anything that is posted or photos or anything unless they are invited or are approved to join...

I'm up for a FB group as well...my MCD DDC for DS2 started a private board but it fizzled after a while, I think just because it was an extra site that people weren't used to checking regularly, kwim?  So FB would be good since I'm on there all the time anyway...friending you, ryleeee :)
