What are reasonable charges for housework?

I am a stay home mother and homeschool educator. My husband says that I do have a considerable job on my hands with these tasks. I would like to show him how much my time is worth though. He is a auto body technician and says that he would be paid considerably more than I. Is there somewhere that I can find a way to break down what i do to add up a total price?
