I saw one of the other boards here that I used to post in do a Mom of the Week thread to help them all get to know each other better. I just lurked to read them and it looked like they really enjoyed it. I thought it would be really fun to do one here. I'd love to get to know you all better.

How it worked was each person was assigned a week to do their posts and each day of the week was for a specific topic/time period. You write a little about yourself each day based on the topic and then the rest of us can ask questions or make comments. Then the next week it would start over with the next person. You could write it all out ahead of time if you wanted or just day by day. Whatever works best for you. And of course it goes without saying, you only share what you feel comfortable with, no more no less.

I think their schedule looked something like this:

Monday - Your childhood through pre-married life (growing up, parents/siblings, going to college or starting a career, etc)

Tuesday - Your love story (a little intro on your dh/so, how you met and fell in love, what marriage is like for you, etc)

Wednesday - Your children (a little intro for each one and maybe some background on how they came to you, etc or if you don't have kids yet, what you're hoping for or something else about your family/personal life)

Thursday & Friday they left open for Q&A or for people to catch up if they missed a day. But it seemed like they were all asking questions throughout the week so it was really over by Wednesday most of the time. I thought since we're a smaller group maybe we could add something for Thursday. Maybe hobbies and personal interests, or since it's a Christian parenting board maybe something about your relationship with Jesus, church life, etc.

What do ya'll think? Would you want to do this?
