Halloween has become widely popular in the Philippines in recent years, following the way other countries do it: decorating houses with images of ghouls and creepy witches, dressing up on Hallow's eve, October 31st, and bringing the kids out for trick or treat.
While the children are mostly excited about their candy haul, we're guessing grown-ups — moms, in particular — are looking forward to the dressing up part even more because Halloween gives them a license to be whomever they want to be without fear of being judged. Want to don a unicorn onesie? Go right ahead. Want to glam it up and go Queen Bey? We won't stop you. Heck, you can even come as yourself. Well, sort of.
In Albuquerque, New Mexico, 13-year-old Jill Hartsock is getting cheered on by moms everywhere for her spot-on portrayal of motherhood with her "Tired Mom" costume, a photo of which her mother Lindsay posted on Facebook. It has gotten more than 39,000 Likes, almost 9,000 comments, and 64,000 shares so far.

Jill's photo has received a lot of positive comments, all of which praise the concept, details of her costume, and even her acting skills! Lindsay, who has eight other children, says Jill "had a legit example" in her mom, but totally credits her daughter for coming up with the idea.
"She totally put a lot of thought into this role," Lindsay said in the comments section, adding, "When she came downstairs like this I couldn't stop laughing! She was in full character and it was so entertaining."
Let's see. What's so "Mom" about Jill's outfit?
1. Messy bun
Yes, a scrunchie is a mom's best friend.
2. Smudged eyeliner
Any attempt to put on cosmetics is futile.
3. Starbucks Venti
Only because they don't have anything bigger.
4. Burp cloth
They should change the name to "spit-up cloth."
5. Cracked nail polish
It's like a 3-year-old painted it on (oh, wait, in Jill's case, it was).
