Mother of 6 pens epic instructions note to husband before leaving for a girls' weekend

Mother of 6 Pens Epic Letter to Husband

A mother of six from Chicago is gaining attention online for a "letter" she wrote to her husband about caring for their kids while she was out of town.

Meghan Maza Oeser, the blogger behind The Ultimate Spoon, took the time to write out the hysterical instructions manual before she went away on a girls' weekend.

'Dearest Husband," she began her post. "I'm writing this to you out of love, not fear."

That's when we knew it was about to get real.

Oeser goes on to detail all the hell that their kids are about to throw at her husband, including their conflicting tastes in food, their recreational wardrobe demands and last, but certainly not least, the Godforsaken routine that is ... bedtime.

Since Oeser posted the letter on Facebook on August 12, it has gone viral, racking up over 130,000 shares and more than 72,000 comments.

The post has earned her a lot of laughter and also some criticism -- a few naysayers have commented that Oeser's husband should know his children well enough that he doesn't need the letter.

Oeser spoke to WGN-TV about her haters, assuring them that her husband is completely capable of the task at hand -- she even admitted that her children are better behaved for her husband than they are for her!
