Mom's market value

WVVA (NBC News)--Moms are hit with a pay cut.

The annual "Mother's Day Index" from insure.com reports the 2013 market value of mom is 59,862 dollars.

That's down from just over 60-thousand dollars last year.  Researchers at insure.com look at a mom's typical top tasks like child care and cooking, and figure out what it would cost to hire someone to do them.

Those wages are based on information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and do not include a salary from work outside the home.
