When we set up our life insurance years ago, I was startled to realize my Dearest would receive more money if I died compared to what I would receive if he died. Then, I started to think about how many "hats" I wear: chef, accountant, chauffeur, teacher, housekeeper/maid, activity coordinator, nurse, referee, and who knows what else! Contrary to popular belief, I'm not merely a "Stay-at-Home Mom," with lots of time to watch soaps and eat bon bons. Though I wish I had more time to my other hobbies!
Today, I found this article that gives a dollar amount that answers the question, "How much is a SAHM's work worth?" Yowzers!
