Moving to Maplewood: A good place for SAHM's

Happy to see another happy Maplewoodian, especially one who is a Stay At Home Mom:

We moved to Maplewood, NJ 9 months ago, and there's a super active chapter of Mothers & More here. It's truly been a lifesaver for finding a really active playgroup for my 2-year-old and I've made some great friends through it. Perhaps we just lucked out with our group dynamic, but we always have at least one playgroup a week; we've also done moms' night out and dinner parties with the kids at peoples' houses. There's also a very active town website/message board which has also been great for meeting people in real life, and also great for getting general town information (it was invaluable during the hurricane).

I wasn't aware of these strong online networks in Maplewood/South Orange before we moved, but these have made such a difference for me as a SAHM-Stay At Home Mom--in a new town. If we were to move again, honestly, moving somewhere that had an active online network would certainly factor into our decision. Once kids are in school, I think it's much easier to meet people. But for now, it's important. I'm actually much happier in the suburbs than I was in Brooklyn, and finding networks of people has been a huge part of that.

The adjustment to the suburbs is definitely surprising, but it can also be really great.
