How much would moms get paid if they received a salary?

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED May 9, 2014

We all know moms work hard every day for free. So, what's mom's value really worth?

With Mother's Day coming up this Sunday, May 11, let's crunch the numbers:

For cooking and cleaning, she should make $12,000. Add in more than $21,000 for childcare and more than $5,000 for being a personal chauffeur. Then add $7,000 for homework help.

Miscellaneous tasks such as shopping, yard work, activity planning and balancing finances totals another $15,000.

Finally, the fee for being a private detective is $1,000. Just think about all the time moms spend keeping tabs on their kids.

According to Insure.com, the average mom's annual salary would be $62,985 if she got paid for doing the job.
