a mom's worth

According to Redbook magazine, a mom's worth is estimated to be $761,650.00. All you moms run and check your bank balance. Their point was that would be the annual salary for mothers if we were paid in dollars for all we do. I have always worked, until this past month. For the past three years I worked from home on a part-time basis and could only perform my duties during nap time or after they were in bed for the night. I miss my little paycheck, but I don't miss the additional stress it provided while trying to juggle things or sitting down for a minute and thinking " I should be working right now". All the money I have made from all of my various jobs from babysitting at at 15 to underwriting at age 31 I can attest that motherhood is the hardest AND most rewarding. Money or no money.

Just saw you're reading Eats, Shoots, and Leaves. Isn't it fun? I'm a grammar geek, I guess! I did see that there's a kid's version of the book when Audrey and I were at the bookstore the other day. Looked like fun...
