That study makes zero sense to my life. Really, I find it completely incomprehensible. I spend every hour DH is at work with a kid physically attached to me, engaging with him. So a difference of 83 minutes makes no sense to me - even with pee breaks, it's got to be at least 8-9 hours difference. The way they broke out the breastfeeding data is confusing - when they say an additional hour, does that mean on top of the 83 minutes? PLUS 27 minutes of reading, singing, etc. PLUS 32 minutes more of cuddles? Or are the latter two included?
Further, it begs the question - if SAHMs are only spending an extra hour and a half with their kids, what the heck are they DOING all day??? Because it must be something, which the WOHMs aren't - right? Or are we assuming they are at yoga, the spa, and eating bon-bons?
Yes, I'm glad I wasn't the only one who couldn't understand those numbers, lol!
