I was reading Real Simple and saw this cute clip and had to share.
"$112,962. The yearly salary a 2012 stay-at-home mom would earn (that is, if she were paid), as determined by the career-advice website Salary.com. The income was calculated by combining the average wages, plus overtime, for the jobs a mom typically performs, including laundress, janitor, driver, cook, facilities manager, psychologist, and CEO (of the household). The results also showed that the average stay-at-home mom works a grueling 94.7-hour week and would make an average of $22.94 an hour."
Interesting, except my pay would be a little less since I make my kids do the laundry around here...
Now before you get the wrong idea, know that I love my job exactly the way it is.
Overtime and all :)
Just think of the working mommies out there. They should be millionaires!
