Celeste Erlach, 38, is a mother of two, with a 4-year-old boy and a baby to constantly keep her eyes on. And even though Celeste would probably like to stay in the kid-raising game without a substitution, naturally, sometimes it drains her energy so much, she needs help. Sometimes, however, the mom feels like her husband isn’t willing to step up. After nearly losing it the last time, Celeste has decided to write him an open letter.
“My husband and I talk about this topic fairly regularly,” Erlach, who also runs a parenting blog called And What A Mom, told Bored Panda. “The reason I wrote an open letter is because I know lots of women facing similar issues. I discuss this topic all the time with my friends. I wanted to put it out there to start a larger discussion. I wanted women to feel encouraged to ask for help. I wanted husbands to know we need more help.” And it worked; moms all over the internet started relating to the emotional text.
Since her story went viral, people have been wondering about Celeste’s husband’s take on the situation. “He understands the bigger picture,” she added. “He doesn’t love the attention directed towards him, but he knows my concerns and we work on that daily.” Scroll down to check out the letter that started it all and let us know your thoughts about it in the comments.
