I know it may seem that the husband who works and supports a stay at home wife/mother is getting the short end of the stick, but I assure you, it usually isn't so. I have been a SAHmom since we had children 21 years ago. I did 90% of all the work associated with caring for the boys, including all the boy scouts, PTA, volunteer work, dr. Appts and little league. I cooked all the meal, did all the shopping, kept up the house (albeit not as good as hubby thinks I should), did all the laundry, kept the bills paid, the savings planned and met, did the taxes myself and all the social obligations of Christmas, birthdays, weddings , Bar mitzvahs or whatever came along.
And along in there I bore two kids, made a home a nice place to come home to and kept a bed warm. My day had no "quitting time".
What do you suppose the dollar value of that would be?
