The Hilarious Story Behind Jennifer Garner’s Strange Mother’s Day Tradition
Mother’s Day is one of the biggest celebratory events in a woman’s life, which serves as a constant reminder of the beautiful journey of parenthood they’re on. But for one A-lister mom, celebrating this special day isn’t getting any easier with time.
In an interview, Jennifer Garner revealed that it becomes trickier to pull off a successful mother’s day tradition with each passing year as her kids grow older.
She remembered how easy it was to celebrate her special day when the kids were young. They would sit on her lap, give her cuddles and smooches to thank her for everything she has done for them as a mom.
However, she finds that bonding with her kids seems like an impossible task now that they are much older. But Garner has found a clever way to celebrate Mother’s Day with one special tradition that she plans to continue for the rest of her life, no matter how old her kids are.
According to Jennifer Garner, she still remembers the time her kids used to sit on her lap on Mother’s Day when they were young. In order to recreate that special moment, she has made a tradition to take photos with her kids sitting on her lap every year.
The annual photo shoot became a tradition in Garner’s home with her entire family coming together on this special day to create beautiful memories. However, this once-happy culture turned quite problematic recently. Not only are her kids too big and heavy to sit on her lap but her family is also getting bigger in number!
Today, her kids with ex-husband, Ben Affleck — Violet Anne (13), Seraphina Rose Elizabeth (10), and Samuel Garner (7) — barely fit into the frame alongside the rest of Garner’s extended family. The result is often disastrous and hilarious as everyone breaks into weird poses for the camera.
Not only that, but Garner’s legs start to feel numb after a while, and she ends up feeling sore for days. But they all enjoy the tradition nonetheless.
Despite all the trouble they have to go through to get the perfect Mother’s Day picture, Garner’s children have no qualms in doing it all over again. According to the actress, her kids still enjoy sitting on her lap, and they promise to do it with her every year!
If they uphold this promise, it could mean that Garner will have to accomodate her kids on her lap even when they’re in their 20’s and 30’s!
Garner couldn’t help but laugh at the hilarious idea of continuing this tradition when they’re older and how she would have to work on getting strong enough to seat them all on her lap in the years to come.
Last April 24, Garner celebrated her Mother’s Day in advance by hosting Baby2Baby and Shutterfly’s event in Los Angeles. She had a great time bonding with over 30 mothers and their children coming from the marginalized sector around the area. Garner says she loves spending time with these families since she gets to know them thanks to these foundations.
The actress also knows how they fight every day to work hard to support their children and families. So she’s honored and ecstatic to host Baby2Baby and Shutterfly’s program with mums around the country to celebrate Mother’s Day in advance. According to Garner, these strong women deserve special treatment to make their day even better.
