“How funny is Birdie’s costume?” Philipps later asked on her Instagram Story. “She’s making me come to her Halloween carnival at school today, and she’s making me bring her a giant Starbucks, like I always have.”
“I’m going to start to cry. It’s so sweet,” she continued. “I know she’s making fun of me. I mean, she’s just being silly. She’s not really making fun of me. She’s kind of making fun of me, but she’s just her own person, and I really respect that.”
While Birdie’s costume couldn’t be cooler, Philipps explained that her daughter initially questioned her decision to dress up as her mom, after a classmate called the idea “weird.”
“Birdie was feeling insecure about it, but then yesterday she was like, ‘No, I want to do it. That’s what I want to be,’” she said, before snapping a pic of the matching outfit she wore to pick Birdie up from school.
