Editor's Note: Happy Mother's Day to all moms. Moms have such a tremendous job to do in raising their children. Recent reports show a mom's yearly compensation is worth around $200,000. Guess how many hugs and skinned knees that translates in to?
PRNewswire- Profile America -- Sunday, May 10th. Today is Mother's Day -- one of the nation's most honored national observances. The idea started in 1908 with Anna Jarvis of West Virginia, to honor her recently departed mother -- who had voiced the hope that sometime there would be a day to commemorate all mothers. By 1911, every state observed Mother's Day, and in 1914, Congress made it a national event. There are nearly 83 million mothers across the U.S. Each year, just over 4 million women have babies. Of these, 435,000 are teenagers 15 to 19, and at the other end of the age scale, more than 112,000 are 40 or older. The average age of women giving birth for the first time is 25.
