Paul Spears, writing for The Scriptorium, discussed an interesting Reuters study about Stay-at-home mom’s. In the study, they found that in order to accurately compensate this special class of mother’s we’d have to pay them $138,095 a year. That’s a lot of money! I don’t even make that. It sounds like I’m getting a pretty good deal with Deanna.
Once you begin to think about the variety of skills and managerial tasks a mother must do in a typical day, you begin to understand.

- maintain order, (kids, stuff, pets)
