While I'm not about "Mommies should always stay home with the kids", I do think it would be nice if wages were such that parents could afford to make a choice to live on one salary while the other parent stays home with the kids when they're small.

It would be nice to have that choice. Some simply don't and I appreciate that and echo your views.
A lot of people do have that choice, but don't think/realise that they have. If they managed their budget differently and didn't "need" exotic holidays, new cars, latest electronics and tech etc. they may be able to have the lifestyle they would prefer for that time.
