If SAHP Were To Make A Salary, It Would Be $162,581.

This is according to salary.com. Feeling a little better? Yeah, me too. Being a SAHP isn’t easy. It’s often times a thankless job. So many times I’ve thought how I wish I would get a paycheck to validate all my hardwork. Really just to see how much my work is worth. I’m of course grateful […]
