I did the activity and here's what it showed for me...
Earnings Statement Our Family
For The year Ending: May, 2010
Job Title Hourly Rate Hours Worked
Day Care Center Teacher/Homeschooler $12.14 (This is just for one child. I didn't calculate what 3 would be...tried, but something wouldn't compute correctly.)
Facilities Manager $29.52
Computer Operator $14.42
Laundry Machine Operator $9.38
Chief Executive Officer $47.59
$1,817 per week
-multiply that by 4 weeks each month and my monthly income would be
Annual = $87,216!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not too shabby, eh? (smile)
~This is low though because I didn't calculate 2 other children in.
I hope this put a smile on at least one mother's face today. :)
