Busy Philipps gave her social media followers a taste of the lows and highs of being a parent.
The 38-year-old mom of two shared a “parental fail” mishap to her Instagram followers on Sunday night after she accidentally left daughter Birdie’s two stuffed animals at a hotel.
In a series of heartbreaking Instagram stories, Philipps revealed that she had just returned from a “wonderful” family vacation in Hawaii with her husband Marc and two daughters, 9-year-old Birdie and 4-year-old Cricket.
Birdie’s beloved stuffed animals, Radar and Flat Bear, didn’t make the trip back to California, and the actress was filled with guilt, shedding tears over the mishap.
“I called and housekeeping haven’t found them, so I think they were really tangled up in the sheets and they just went to the place where they wash the sheets and so hopefully tomorrow they’ll find them,” she shared.
“But it doesn’t make anything better and of course all of Cricket‘s animals made it back. I feel like such an a**hole,” an emotional Philipps continued. “I know it’s just a mistake and these things happen, but it’s the worst when you’re a parent and it’s your responsibility to keep everything straight.”
“She was just so heartbroken, and I was, like, I knew it as soon as I opened up the suitcase to get Cricket’s stuff for bed. “I was like, I didn’t see Radar and Flat Bear,” said the “Freaks and Geeks” alum. “I was like, f**k, f**k, f**k.’”
Philipps also revealed that one of the bears was hers as a child. “We’re all healthy, made it back in one piece,” she finished. “They’re just stuffed animals. She’ll recover. She’s resilient. I don’t know if I will.”
But a miracle occurred and Phillips announced on Tuesday the toys had been located and were hopefully en route back to the family.
“Just landed in New York to this amazing text,” Philipps tweeted on Tuesday, alongside a screenshot of the teddy bear.
