You might want to consider using a custom post type for your content rather
than pages. The UI of pages ultimately assumes somewhere between 1 and 20
pages – for things like 'about' and 'contact' – beyond that it starts to
fall apart and those pulldowns get super overloaded.

Back in the day using pages was the easiest way to get logical permalinks
but now CPTs can do the job just as well. Once you are thinking of pages in
terms of "months" you are probably better off using a new kind of posts (or
even normal posts in a particular category).
