Mother of 6, Meghan Oeser from Oak Forest, Illinois, left for a girls' weekend last week and wanted to give her husband some advice on social media. She went through the play by play of how the weekend will go as he tries to take on the role as super mom.
She describes dinner this way: "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 rip sticking down the street. Everyone will eat cereal for dinner, and Lily will come inside for a Band Aid."
Oeser said that her husband can, in fact, manage the kids fairly well. It was all just meant as a joke. She later told ABC news, "Never in a million years did I think it'd get over 105,000 shares."
When she got home from her vacation she said that she had a great time, but being with her family is so much more entertaining.
