After the birth of my first baby, I went on a search for a "mommy group" for the 2 of us. I didn't really have any friends with kids and was anxious to connect with other mothers. I was very disappointed to find that all of the mom groups in my area were really just for stay at home moms as the majority of their events were during the day. I even had one group come right out and say that their group wasn't for working moms like me.
My husband got tired of listening to me complain about having no groups for working moms, so he told me to start one. Finally, one Saturday I did. I found a meetup site for people to start groups and after a few clicks, my group was created. It took a few months, but soon we had a very active group with a bunch of great moms. I had a few moms help me and we had events for all moms - day time and evenings. After I had been turned away from that one group, I vowed that I would not turn away anyone from my group.
It was great to connect with the other moms that knew what it was like to juggle their 40+ hour work with with raising a family and making time for themselves. I made some great friends. The group was also a great for people that were new to the area.
I think that most working moms (or moms in general) are looking for the same thing - friendships with others that share the same interests and challenges. How do you connect with other working moms?
