$100K? That's incredible. And people wonder why their taxes are so high there?

She'd have done a lot better, too, had she taught full time all those years. However, it was a joint decision for us that she took 10 years off when our little ones were born, to be with them full time until they reached school age. Then she worked full time for a few years, but went to part time again to spend time with them as they grew into teen years.

We have no regrets. She loved being a mom, I loved her being home as a "homemaker", and we did just fine on the decreased income because we've never been loony about blowing money on "stuff" that we didn't really want or need.

Again, a $100,0000 teacher pension is truly incredible!
