Have you ever wondered what you would earn if you were paid for every job you do as a wife and mother? Well, wonder NO MORE!!

Salary.com released its annual market valuation of a mother’s work today, and surprise, surprise!!  Did you know that being a mom can be a six figure job??

Salary.com determined that a stay-at-home mother might be paid as much as $134,121 for her contributions as a housekeeper, cook, day care center teacher, janitor and CEO, among other functions.

Among the jobs they have listed:  Housekeeper, cook, day care center teacher, laundry machine operator, CEO, facilities manager, van driver, psychologist, computer operator, and janitor.
