Amid the coronavirus pandemic, devoted mom Birdie also imparted some wisdom after seeing her lying on the floor of her room and listening Harry Styles‘Music in the dark.
“I said, ‘Are you all right? Would you like to talk about anything?'” Philipps described. “And Birdie said, ‘It’s just that I feel alive, but I’m not really living, you know? And I just want the living part to start.'”
The actress could relate to how Birdie felt. “I got very emotional because I said, first of all, welcome to be my daughter,” she said. “But I want to tell you that because I wish someone had told me: This is alive. You can’t wait for it to start … You can’t think if I just get to X That’s how I’ll start living . ‘”The star reflected on how she had previously lived her life, waiting for the future and” fantasizing “about a certain thing that made her feel different, but has since learned to” sit still “and “sit in there. ”
Philipps also gave their child the opportunity to live whatever life they want – whatever that means. “I said yes [Birdie], ‘The other thing I want to tell you that I wish I had known is that you can make your life any way you want it, and it doesn’t have to look like you’ve ever seen it or Anything ever modeled for you because it might not exist, “she encouraged.” You can choose what fulfills and makes you happy, you know? It doesn’t have to be one of those constructs we’ve all been fed our entire lives. This is another world to build. “
Before Christmas, Philipps raved about being Birdie a mother after giving them a powder blue suit. “Birdie opened one of my presents tonight. It was that blue suit that got excited and immediately put on, and it felt like I won Christmas two days early,” described the Dawson’s Creek alum. “And then I managed to get this picture and now I feel like I’ve won it all because OH MY GOD I get to know this person and THAT is the magic of being a parent.”
