Just so we're clear, I am not trying to pimp out my child nor do I have the intention of becoming any kind of pageant mom whatsoever, but I just couldn't help myself with this one.� I've entered Emmett into the Gap Casting Call to become one of the next babyGap models, and he'd love your vote (seriously -- he told me).� If you don't become completely frustrated by the crapiness of the website (could they have made Emmett's photo any more pixelated?!), please at least attempt to vote.

I have to admit - when my friend, Keith first came to me with the idea of creating a facebook group for people to place bets on my baby-to-be's birth stats, I was pretty hesitant.� However, once I realized giving him the "okay" wouldn't really mean I was pimping out my baby, I gave in.� (Plus, he promised to put two dollars of every five-dollar bet toward a baby gift for Baby Lump.� Hey, we'll always need extra diapers, right?)

The "Pam and James Baby Betting Pool!! $5 Entry!" group has only been in existence for about 24 hours, but I'm already starting to notice the potential for how much fun it could be.� It's really interesting to see what people's guesses are and wonder who will be correct (or closest to it).� I've even started making an Excel spreadsheet of the first submissions (eh - you already knew I'm a geek).� And after a chat with the group's original creator, we've decided to change a few things ...

In the spirit of the group, we've decided to eliminate monetary wagers.� This was also decided after the realization that people probably won't be sending me five-dollar bills in the mail.� (Unfortunately, facebook is lame and doesn't allow you to change the name of a group after it's already been created, so don't be deceived by the title.)� Anyway, I figured more people would post their guesses on the wall if they didn't think they had to contribute a few bucks, and I'm honestly just curious to see if anyone will guess the three stats dead-on.� Which reminds me, guesses are to be made in the form of three categories:

  1. Sex/Flavor (you know - boy or girl)

  2. Date of Birth (Month/Date)

  3. Birth Weight (in pounds and ounces format)

The official rules are posted in the group's description, including specifications for scoring and how the winner will be chosen.� So please, join the group and place your bet guess!� Just be careful not to guess the same as someone else!

While there may not be any monetary compensation for the winner, I already have a few ideas up my sleeve as far as prizes go.

And hey, even though we've gotten rid of the actual betting, if you'd still like to submit a five-dollar donation for the future purchase of diapers, by all means! :o)

I've decided to post an ongoing list of people's guesses in a separate page on this blog called "Birth Stats," which I will try to update regularly.

Fellow Boston University COM alum and Twitter pal, Yianni Garcia (AKA Social Media Guy) is running a fun little contest on his blog, and I'm honored to be a part of it! That's right, apparently I'm a "Hot [Mom] on Facebook."� Haha - gotta love it.

Check out Yianni's blog post about it, and vote by submitting a comment at the bottom of the page.� The winner will be chosen based on most comment votes as of September 30.� I encourage you to vote honestly - there are quite a few pretty hot mamas in the running, so I won't blame you if you don't pick me (just remember who sent you there and how scrumdidlyumptious her brownies are) ;o).
