Is it teething time for your little one?


When you’re nine-years-old your mum is your biggest hero.


Busy Phillips daughter Birdie showed just how much her mum means to her when she paid homage to her mum during a fancy-dress event at the local carnival.


The witty nine-year-old decided to stray away from the traditional princess costumes and dressed up as her mum instead.


The White Chicks star couldn’t contain her laughter over the genius costume. She posted a photo of her daughter to Instagram captioned, “I am dead.”

The actress shared a photo of her daughter wearing a boho style dress, red earrings, giant sunglasses, an iPhone with her mum’s iconic chill pill phone case, and of course her costume wouldn’t be the same without the ultimate Busy accessory- an iced coffee from Starbucks.


38-year-old Busy admitted that her daughter’s costume made her day. She shared a video on her InstaStory asking fans what they thought of her daughter’s costume.


She went on to share that she had to help out with the costume and revealed that Birdie asked her to pop by her school and drop off the “giant Starbucks like I always have.”


Birdie’s classmates questioned her costume idea, but that didn’t stop her from dressing up as her mum. She didn’t let other opinions stop her. What an amazing quality to have!

Busy revealed, “Birdie was questioning whether she should just get a store-bought costume because a girl at school was like, ‘You’re gonna be your mom? That’s so weird.”


Despite her insecurities, Birdie ignored the girl’s rude comment and dressed up as what she wanted, Busy shared, “Yesterday she was just like, No, I want to do it. That’s what I want to be.”


The mum praised her daughter for thinking outside the box. She loved how unique her daughter’s costume was, she said, “I’m gonna start to cry, it’s so sweet. She’s just her own person and I really respect that.”


Birdie seems to have inherited her mum’s sense of humour, the comedy actress shared, “I know she’s making fun of me. She’s just being silly, she’s not making fun of me, well, she’s kind of making fun of me.”


Busy admitted that the costume may have made her laugh, but most importantly, it made her smile. Her daughter’s unique personality shone through this Halloween.


We love how brave Birdie was. Her costume is one of the funniest we’ve ever seen.
