Girl, 13, goes as 'Tired Mum' for Halloween and absolutely nails it

Halloween is delivering the goods this year. Along with Nicky Hilton dressing as sister Paris and this little kid with the terrifying 'headless woman' costume, we're putting forward another nominee for this year's 'best-dressed' list.

Thirteen-year-old Jillian as the "tired mum".

Jillian's mum, Lindsay Hartsock, posted a photo of the teenager's outfit on her family's photography page, showing off her tights, uggs, cardigan, nursing pad, large Starbucks cups, and a toy doll strapped to her leg. 

It was even complete with loose cheerios in the hair and a Target bag full of diapers and wine.

"When she came downstairs like this I couldn't stop laughing," Lindsay wrote in the comments. "She was in full character and it was so entertaining."

Part of the character included throwing fruit snacks down to the toddler and consistently yawning.

Writing for Love What Matters, mum Lindsay said that growing up with eight siblings has meant Jillian is more than familiar with the life of a tired mum.

"Jillian has seen the blood, sweat and tears that go into raising kids," Lindsay wrote. "Jillian is baby number four. She has five little siblings and is amazing with them, but exhausted. She’s had a perfect 'tired mummy' example for a long time now."

The – hilarious but also scary – realness of the costume has caused the post to go absolutely bonkers on Facebook. It has 60,000 shares and 8,000 comments – pretty much all of them from Mums saying how much they related.

One mum commented, "I legit thought this was me! From the yoga pants, spit up, Starbucks cup and Target bag… She nailed it!"

"This girl is pure gold in human form," another wrote.

But most perfectly, this woman said what we were all thinking: "I wouldn't even need a costume…"

Yep, this Halloween, it seems a lack of sleep and unwashed hair is perfectly acceptable. Score!
