From taking her girls Birdie and Cricket to meet Big Bird on Sesame Street to marching alongside her family at the March for Our Lives gun control march, Busy does her best to have fun with her daughters while showing them what's important.

When She Shared Her Struggles About Sending Birdie to Summer Camp

"I've been so worried about my Bird, she went to sleepaway camp this week-she's a kid who doesn't even do sleepovers but she really wanted to go to camp and was determined to power through. The first night they called us cause she was so upset. But then yesterday, we got this picture, she looks so happy and we got no call last night so now (thankfully) I'm the only one who's crying."
