Personally, I think it's pretty good.

That is a more reasonable estimate than you see a lot of times. I'm not sure I would consider my cooking skills worth 52K, but I'm worth way more than 31K for childcare!

Wow! That's about how much we were making when I was working, and that's both of us combined! Since I don't have school and soccer and such, I'd say the driving costs are lower. I'm not cooking any five star meals, but I do cook daily. I slack on the housekeeping. I think this is a little high for me, but interesting to see it broke down in this way.
