I LOVE Beggars Nightits SO fun seeing what all my friends kids are dressed up as, whether in real life or on Facebook. I also love seeing the ultra-creative costumes that I would never think of myself: and theres one thats going viral on Facebook that cracked me up because its SO dead on! Meet Lainie, who decided to dress up as a tired mom for Halloween:
Is that hilarious or WHAT?? From the spit-up on her shirt to the rugrat hugging her leg, to the messy bun and dark circles under her eyes, Id say Lainie NAILED IT! And shes definitely proof that our kids are umPAYING ATTENTION to us more than we might think theyare. (Can I get an ouch??)
Oh Lainie! Your costume is so dead-on, Im not even mad that its kind of a rough portrayal! After all, being a mom is TOUGH, and there are many days I have looked like EXACTLY that. (And mornings. I had to put on EXTRA concealer this morning due to some stubborn Monday-issue dark circles.)
Im not the only one who loves Lainies spot-on Tired Mom costumeits been shared on Facebook over 12,000 times in two days, showing that moms can recognize REAL when we see it! But hey, Lainie, maybe next year you could go as a picture-perfect PTA Stepford Mom, just to balance it out a little? Maybe a nice LuLaRoe dress, a blowout and some tall boots with a Starbucks cup for an accent? Just an ideayouve got plenty of time to perfect it!
What are your kids going as for Trick-or-Treat this year? Ive got an Anger from Inside Out, Tinkerbells friend Fawn and Harry Potter. Have fun and be safe tonight, friends!
