Can you place a price on motherhood? Yes. $117k per year

mom salary
Salary.com has posted the Mom's Salary Wizard.

Punch in the quantities of children... and which age bracket.

Declare your status: "stay-at-home" or "working mom" and then select "calculate"

Voila! A mother's estimated salary in dollars.

Though it may be a marketing scheme to get you to their site I've often wondered how one could fully value a mom.

It's just not a "job" that is monetarily quantifiable. Is there a good job description for mother?

She's the one who spends every waking hour concerned for your welfare.

She's put her life on the line bringing you into the world... endured the pain- and still loves you beyond measure.

She doesn't track the overtime hours- that's just not in her business plan.

You can leave home; father children of your own- become a grandpa.

Still- she's your mother... she always will be.

You'll always be in her thoughts and she'll never give up on you.

To her you're the most handsome, beautiful, talented person ever.

I want to thank mothers everywhere- there's really no accurate price...

... any attempt would be an underestimate.

lol Liz! I should have had a few mothers read this in draft before submitting. It's possible we could work out a better contract. :-)

Chuck - this was fun.  My dad may have worn the pants, but my mom always was the captain.  Happy Mother's Day everyone!

James- Since my father was a Colonel I'd have to advance my mom's rank to General. :-)

Suzanne- Don't get her started. One mention of any of her kids and out comes the photo albums and the bragging. :-)

Dan- I'm a little dismayed by the disparity of the calculator... especially in the "working mothers" portion.

If you ask my mother, she'll tell you that it's more like $ 2 Billion...

Yes, I was a difficult child...

...And then, there's my sister...

Thank you, Chuck for this insightful blog!  Perfect for Mother's Day!

Great post!  My mom is now 78 years old.  My dad is gone. 

I was adopted when I was 17 months old.  My mom is my world.  She stills looks out for me, even at 39 years of age.  I love her and just hung up the phone with her. 

You have some great posts and I love to read them!  Thanks for bringing out the human side in you on a regular basis.  Your posts are always wonderful!  JENNIFER
