Hi there :)

There is a Work at home MOMs board on iVillage. Here is the link:

We are happy to have you here, as well. Not many of us work at home....some of us hold part time jobs out of the home (I work for my girls school district). We would love to get to know you, though. Please let us know what else we can help you with :)
