Dark-eye circles and simulated baby spittle on her sweatshirt are some of the finer touches on 7-year-old Lainie's Halloween costume. The girl's "mom" costume, with a tired, dour look and her hair in a messy "mom bun," has been shared more than 14,000 times on Facebook.

Rachael Fansler Beachy posted a picture of Lainie, the daughter of her friend,Jesse Griffin, in her Halloween costume on her Facebook page Saturday.
In addition to the tired look, Lainie is wearing flipflops. She is carrying a “baby” in a car seat carrier and another “baby” is crawling up her right leg.
The photo had more than 189,000 likes and more than 23,000 comments by the time Halloween ended.

Griffin told WANE that the costume was her daughter’s idea. She said Lainie’s younger brother and sister often crawl at her feet, so attaching a clinging baby to her daughter was a natural move.
Griffin has five children, and Lainie’s idea appealed to her because it was a thrifty move, she told WANE.
“I said, ‘Perfect, we have everything here,’” Griffin told WANE.
Griffin says it’s ironic the photo has gotten so much attention because Lainie is the most soft-spoken and shy of all her children.
“Her personality is not this,” she said.
