Busy Philipps @busyphilipps: My husband and I have been lamenting that our forks keep going missing- well LOOK what I just found in my car! Also, I know my hair is a mess but I had to run to UPS before the girls got home from school. I’ll do it now, ok?

Busy Philipps @busyphilipps: Growing up, My mom worked but she always tried to do special stuff with us, like she was the leader of our Girl Scout troops and she volunteered at school when she could. She did all the traditional “mom” stuff like bake and do crafts and sew things and taught me how to make cakes and crochet but she also sometimes just would pick up fast food for dinner cause she couldn’t be bothered(and she worked). When girls were being mean to me in 5th grade, my mom let me stay home one day and she took me to the movies. My mom liked to play music super loud at school drop off and dance in her car to embarrass me. When people would ask what my “safety net” for being an actress was, my mom would say confidently “Busy doesn’t need a safety net. She’s going to succeed.” She scratched my back and sang to me before bed until I was way too old for that to be something your mom does. She let me call her Barb, even though it drove her nuts. I have told my mom I hated her a million times over the years. Mostly, when I was being a jerk but truthfully, sometimes when she was. It took me being a mom to really understand how hard what she did was and how little credit I gave her growing up(and even into my twenties). Because I am SO so lucky to have a mom that was engaged and present and trying her fucking best to do it all. Happy Mothers Day to ALL the moms out there. But especially my mom. Who is the best and I love her so so much. (And this blurry pic is my mom crying at my Christmas present to her, which was a manatee that artist Claire Crespo made(cause manatees are her spirit animal) and when she opened it, she was dressed like the manatee and she started laughing& crying)

Busy Philipps @busyphilipps: GUYS! So my friend @jennyandteets2 wrote a SECOND book and you can pre-order it now by going to jennymollen.com -I was lucky enough to get an advance copy, partially because there may or may not be a thinly veiled version of me as a character in the book & Jenny wanted to make sure I wouldn’t be mad at what she wrote. I wasn’t. I loved it. I seriously loved the whole book. It made me laugh and ACTUALLY cry (and not at my own part) and it made me love her even more. I honestly can’t say enough good things about this book- it’s perfect for your summer vacations, it’s perfect to pick up at night and read a chapter before bed, it’s just fucking great. And even though she didn’t ask me to, I’m asking you guys to trust me and pre-order her book because apparently in the book world, pre-orders are everything and allow you to write more books, which she totally should. Because she is just that good and I’m so proud to have known her since we hated each other as teenagers.. That’s all. Support your friends! Cause in the end, that’s all we got, people. Xx
