Borrowing largely from the August DDC's explanation of how this works:

Mommy of the Week (MOTW) is a fun way to learn more about one another. Any member of our DDC may sign up. Shortly ahead of time, I’ll send a PM to the upcoming MOTW with a small questionnaire to get the ball rolling (I will try to give each mom a few days to fill it out). On the first day of her "week," I will post a new topic for her with her questionnaire and any pictures she would like to share in the main post. After that, everyone can post questions and requests for pictures (examples: favorites, family, house tour, etc.) and she can respond right in the thread.

If you are interested in being MOTW, please sign up below. If you have any preference as far as dates go (i.e. if you’re going to be on vacation for a certain week or if you’re working during the week until after x date), just say so when you sign up and I will do my very best to accommodate everyone’s schedules. Otherwise, I’ll sign people up for weeks more or less randomly.

You can sign up at any time!

I'll do it! The only week that doesn't work for me is July 22-28th. I'll be somewhere I won't even be able to get online for most of that week.

I'm in. At this point we don't have any plans to be gone for a long period of time (usually all we can manage are day trips due to DH's work schedule) so at this point any week works!

I'll try to get a rough scheduled drawn up by this evening or tomorrow morning.

I was hoping to get your opinions on something: should we schedule someone for the week of July 1-7? I just know that there are big national holidays for both Canada and the US during that week and even if the potential MOTW didn't have any plans, I'm nervous to stick someone on a week where no one else might be around to ask questions. Am I being overly paranoid or do y'all think we should just skip that week?

I think we could skip that week- wouldn't t be fair to that person if no one is around to ask questions etc.

I would like to sign up. I would prefer to have a week in July. After that work *might* as there is a new project brewing.

Thanks Kayla for organizing this

It's coming along! I think I might adopt a similar strategy to what some other DDCs/forums have done and put two ladies on each week, if that works for everyone else.

I just realized while looking at the calendar that there we've only got 11 weeks left until September (which scared the living CRAP out of me when I realized it) and one of those weeks is the week I planned to cross off for holiday reasons. I can also use weeks in September, but I'm hesitant to rely on them too much because we'll all be ready to pop at that time/some of us may have already and may not be as active for a little while.

I'm assuming that's fine, and personally think it could be a little more fun.
