Busy Philipps solves her shoulder-pain mystery: she's a mum
Like so many of us, the Dawson's Creek actress has been carrying all her kids' bags. Now wonder her shoulder hurts... ?
American actress Busy Philipps got some heads nodding in agreement in the MFM office this morning – thanks to her latest Instagram selfie.
The 37-year-old star, who’s known for roles in Dawson's Creek, White Chicks, Cougar Town, Freaks & Geeks (to name a few), is mum to 8-year-old daughter Birdie and 3-year-old daughter Cricket.
And she’s finally deduced the cause of a mysterious shoulder pain, after a quick look at her reflection in the window...
"I'm getting an MRI on my right shoulder tomorrow because I've been having so much pain for the last several months,” she wrote in the photo’s caption.
"Everyone has been asking how I injured it and I don't have a good answer.
"BUT THEN I JUST CAUGHT MY REFLECTION WALKING UP TO MY HOUSE. I THINK I FIGURED IT OUT, GUYS. I'M A MOM."
We’re certainly not laughing at Busy’s shoulder pain (because that sucks).
But this photo did make us smile purely because, well, that's totally us on a school-run morning – hands and shoulders loaded with bags of all descriptions, from shopping bags to school bags to nappy bags to who-knows-what bags.
We are the bag-toters of the world, it seems!
And, with all that weight loading us down, it's no wonder our shoulders ache, is it?
Feel better soon, Busy! ?
