Let's say that a stay at home mother wants to get another job while her kid(s) are at school.  This is fine, but we then must think of how that would affect the value of her at home mother job.  If the mother is able to leave her other job at a moment's notice to take care of the kid(s), then there would be no reduction to the above assumed wages assuming their quality does not decrease.

If she is not able to leave her job at a moment's notice to take care of the kid(s) and she is working 40 hours a week, then the adjusted assumed wages are below.
