Thank you moms for all that you do! Studies have estimated that moms should be compensated $138,000 a year for their services. I think we're worth all that and more. I just wanted to encourage you and let you know that what you are doing is SOOOO important. On behalf of children everywhere (both young and old), thank you for your selfless service and sacrifice. It means more than you know.
