What's it worth?

A comment left on this post has left me a little agitated.

I did a little research and last year before Mother's Day released their annual survey that calculates a stay-at-home mother's fair market value. In 2008 dollars (I realize that amount may be less in 2009 dollars) a stay at home mother would earn $117,000 a year.

I'm not at home eating bon bons and watching Young and the Restless. I give up sleep to be able to blog.

I realize that I am lucky to be able to stay at home with my children, but to suggest that it is not a job?

I read mostly, but thought I would comment (and sorry, I am behind). As another stay-at-home mom, I just wanted you to know we have the best and the hardest jobs ever. Those who assure us we don't have a JOB are just jealous. I am convinced of it. BTW I love your blog, it is hilarious and cute....and the purses are too! I may just have to get one :)
