What does everyone think? I think it could be anywhere from 6 months to 1 year.

I say at least 6 months but a year will allow everyone the time and prep. I will be in the USA in May to see my son graduate from UVA. If we can't get paid for hotel rooms we can always see who might want to share a room to save some money. I have to say Vegas is pretty cheap with hotels and food.

Well I just snapped like a twig. That is not like me. . . I dont think. But I was a little more than pissed off. I dont think some of the newer people are up for this. And I know not everyone can make it but still. It is worth a shot. I am going to do everything in my power to try and make this happen. But if you cant go, dont shit all over the rest of us. I mean really. Vent over. . . . ?

Marina I just posted a conversation I had with Gina. If we are going to put a post out there asking for moms to take pics where are all the pic going to be placed. Should I put a post out there asking all moms to take photos like Gina suggested. What do you think Marina. I say we do it. Come on back Marina.

Gina that was a fantastic idea. There are a lot of mom with cameras and babies out there. How should we post it. Attention all you momas with those adorable babies.....

then go into something like this.



We need your help and your adorable baby photos. As you may know we are trying to put together a CoM Conference so that we all can get together and meet. We needs some sponsors so this is where you come in. Take those cameras and babies of your and snap your photos. Take pictures of your angel WITH a product. Diaper boxes, baby food, lotion anything that they would love to see. Maybe they might just sponsor us and make our dreams come true.



What do you think Gina. It needs a lot of fine tuning. I am not good at this stuff. But just a thought. Tell me what we should do????

Angela, I need privacy to poop....this could be tricky. I mean, privacy with strangers...cause at home you know the whole house plus the cat has to be in there to monitor my every move.

Yeah, the sharing the room idea is great, especially if we are paying our own way. I guess we better form a buddy system!

not paying for a room would be great Marina! Not sure if that can happen, but never hurts to try. Sharing a room is a great idea also.

So if anyone wants to split a room let me know... they have rooms with 3 to 4 persons and beds....

I'd say 6 months or so...we would need to contact management and have them generate a mass message so we could get enough people on board unless you ladies want to do word of mouth like we have been doing and have them contact sponsors, but I'm sure we could as well...

LOL yeah that is jumping the gun...BUT it does not hurt to think BIG :-)
many things are possible and im sure they would like to meet someof the people that keep them in business...no??
because if it was not for us and others like us...they would have had to shut this place down years ago!

I don't know. If we get enough support and sponsors, it may be a way. I am jumping the gun a bit.

What if, and I really mean...what if....we did not have to pay for hotel rooms? That is at least a thought and a goal.

i liked vegas and i didn't even drink. lol. but my advice is to wear comfy shoes or take a dang public bus. optical illusion. oh, that's right down the road. oh my GOODNESS, my feet! lol. But has all kinds of stuff. even coke and m&m stores for us to take home stuff for kids. I know i would buy kids stuff because i miss them.

It's really nice in Ontario at this time of the year (January, not so much, unless you're into snow and cold).

Vegas sounds great, I've never been and would love to, but it'll probably be a couple of years before I would be able to go. Funds are squeaky tight around here and it looks like I may have to go back to work (UGH) to help out.

Glad to see we are thinking the same way! We just need more people interested. Any thoughts on how to spread the word as of yet?

well its nice to see 18 people here!!!! yay

I would think this time next year??? but it really is up to COM and if they will be able to help us out with anything...if they do, then maybe it can be in the next 6months...but if we have to do this all our own...who know's????
