There is a new study by the Bureau of Labor and Statistics showing that moms do more child care work than dads do. Evidently, mothers spend more hours per week than their husbands on a combination of responsibilities at home, with children, and in the work place. I am sure that no one is surprised by this (although it is nice to have confirmation, sometimes.)
What is surprising is that mothers are finding more meaning in the work they do - whether it is child care, home care or work - than fathers do. So, basically, we moms do more work, but we feel more complete as people and a greater sense of accomplishment.
So, I am now curious - how do the study's findings compare to your household? What is the ratio of child care between you and your spouse and who do you believe enjoys the work more?
