Does anyone know of a working mom's group/playgroup? I have been looking, but everything in my area seems to be geared toward stay home moms. Anyone know of a national working mom's organization?

I was going to suggest the same two groups as Mary. Our local TMN site has some great activities for working moms and some very involved working moms in the group. For either, it will only be as good as the women involved, but these are great places to start!
I have a 6 month old daughter and I have committed to nursing her as long as she wants up to 24 months. I just went back to work about 1 month ago to a brand new job. I took it because there was a great deal of stress with my old boss and it was not a goo

You have to decide which is more important, a bigger place and support or a smaller place with a shorter commute. My husband and I had a 1 hour commute each way for the first 3 years of my daughters life. When I took a job that would make it closer to 1.5 we decided to move down to the city. Our commute is easier and we have more family time. We pay more for housing, but pay a lot less in gas and car upkeep. We still commute to our church, but going once a week on a Sunday is easier than 5 days during rush hours. I love the change, but I do miss our neighborhood and friends sometimes (although I barely had time to see them). Either way can work well, but there are pros and cons to each. Only you can really decide what is best for your family. Good luck with your decision.
