'Good F**king Luck' & Other Brilliant Advice From Mom of 6 Leaving on Girls' Weekend

Megan Maser Oeser Facebook

The thought of going away for a girls' weekend (yes, that would be a getaway without children) typically sends our hearts into a pitter-patter but our minds into a state of anxiety. After all, we do a helluva lot of stuff for our kids and know their quirks unlike any other. Relax and read the epic note a woman left her husband before embarking on just such a trip.

Meghan Maza Oeser's pearls of wisdom are going viral on social media because not only can we relate to every last parenting pitfall she describes, but we're also cheering on the fact that this hardworking mom of six finally gets a break.

"I'm writing this to you out of love, not fear," she starts out. "I wanted to go over a few things with you before you embark on this weekend alone ... with the others."

And it just gets better from there:

There are so many pieces to this gem that are relateable, but perhaps our favorite passage is this:

Dinner will suck. Bailey will want pizza, while Harper will ask for hotdogs. Quinn will cry when you say the word hotdog, and will insist on Mac n cheese (but not the orange kind or the white kind, but the purple kind). We'll be fresh out of the purple kind, so she'll then ask for toast. You'll already have started making mac n cheese for Penny, but since she heard Quinn ask for toast, she'll also want that toast. You'll end up tossing the Mac n cheese because Bailey got the stomach flu 5 years ago after eating the orange kind, and Harper prefers the white kind. You'll also forget about Harper because her friend Lily 'unexpectedly' stopped by, so they went ripsticking down the street. Everyone will eat cereal for dinner, and Lily will come inside for a bandaid.

This exact situation happens in our own homes nightly. We see you, Meghan. We hear you. You are our spirit mom.

And has there ever been better parenting advice than, "You'll want to sit down and relax after dinner/breakfast, but I'm warning you against this. It will get quiet ... REAL quiet. This is when you'll realize that the threenager has fallen asleep somewhere. Do NOT let the threenager fall asleep."

Of course now that we've finally stopped giggling over this post, we have so many questions. How did the girls' weekend go? Did the husband survive? Did Lily ever leave? Don't leave us hanging, Meghan. We need answers.
