The Price of Motherhood (Literally)

I was reading an article on MSN that estimated what a salary would be for a full-time stay-at-home mom: $138,095. Not too shabby, huh? If you are a mom that is employed outside of the home, you'd add another $85,939 on top of your regular salary. To arrive at this number, they took into account ten jobs that mothers juggle daily including housekeeper, day care center teacher, cook, computer operator, laundry machine operator, janitor, facilities manager, van driver, CEO and psychologist.

So moms, when you are feeling overworked and under appreciated, remember that you are worth this...and so much more!!

(Maybe we should all get together and ask for a raise!) :)
