Not for all the money

Denver, CO

#1 May 10, 2008
It's an interesting tool --- and something that I've been looking for. I knew a successful attorney with four boys who lost his wonderful, very competent wife when the boys were small.
He hired 5 people -- 2 or 3 FT -- to help him with the boys, and said that even then, there were things that his wife had done -- shop/wrap gifts/plant flowers/review the boys' schoolwork, etc etc.-- that he scrambled to do.
He had never taken his wife for granted - and had even acknowledged to me once when she was alive, how she could be a CEO w/ her skills at home - but was nonetheless overwhelmed w/ her job description once he needed to hire help to fill some of the positions.
The mother's job is way more than 40/week, but I wouldn't trade it for any amount of money.
