What do you think about women who want to be a non-working stay at home wife?

Woman should have the right to choose to do whatever they want as long as it doesn't hurt them or anyone else.
First of all, being a stay at home wife/mother is actually a 24/7 kind of job. I got no day off for being a mother and a wife 😂 I'm constantly needed, anytime, anywhere with anything and everything. I wake up early in the morning to cook breakfast, taking care of my son, my husband, my dog, my house, and I go to sleep at the earliest of 11pm at least, every day.
Second, idk where people get the idea that a non-working wife/mother is not doing anything at home, just because they don't work regular jobs from 9-5.
Last but not least, non-working wife/mother probably didn't bring monetary value to the family or a paycheck every month, but if you put a budget on everything that a wife does at home as a domestic labor from:
Cooking 3 meals a day x $25/meal every day for 30 days=$2250/month
Cleaning 3 times a week by your local housekeeper x $50=$600/month
Daycare for the kids $850-$1000/month
You accumulate all of that it would cost at least $3850/month, per year $46.200 😃😃
That alone, we saved more than we can earn from doing regular office jobs just by being a stay at home mother. So yeah, my thoughts about being a non-working wife, it's still hell of a work, without actually getting paid.
