Ugh, the 1.5 hour commute would be enough for me to seriously be looking for other work unto itself.  Is there not a similar position/company close to home that you could try to apply for?  Maybe not quit right away, but keep your eye out for other positions.  Have you actually inquired about going part time, or possibly telecommuting one day a week?  You might be surprised what companies will do to keep good employees.

@HeyKaraoke: Honestly, it sounds like you already made up your mind.  I say stick with what you want.  You’re right when you said your child is your priority.  I wish you the best of luck.

If I could afford it, I’d probably go for the part time job, at least for a few years until my child is a little older, then maybe apply for my coporate full time job again.  They grow and change so much when they around young, I wouldnt want to lose that time to be a slave to the commute.

I agree with the previous posters, you sound like you already know what you want to do. That said, definitely have the conversation with your boss about whether it’s at all possible to telecommute part time, or go part time. You might be surprised what they say.
