Being a mom is perhaps one of the hardest jobs in the world. 

Could you put a price tag on all the hard work, countless hours, and other superhero-like duties mothers do day-to-day? 

Salary.com tried to answer that question by selecting a handful of jobs that reflect a “day in the in the life of a Mom.”

Some of those jobs included in the analysis were: 

  • Acadaemic Advisor 
  • Coach 
  • Dietitian 
  • Event Planner
  • Executive Housekeeper
  • Janitor 
  • Judge 
  • Psychologist
  • Photographer 
  • Plumber 
  • Staff Nurse

Salary.com also determined that stay-at-home moms actually put in more than 90 hours of work a week. 

Once all that information was entered into their salary calculator, analysts determined the medium annual salary of a mother in 2018 should be $162,581.00

That’s a nearly five percent increase from the 2017 estimated salary. 

What do you think of the results?
