Jennifer Garner’s Son Wrote Her a Check for Being a Mom, But the Amount Leaves Something to Be Desired

Actress Jennifer Garner shared a heart-melting moment on Instagram, proving she’s crushing it in the mama game. The star’s 7-year-old son Sam wrote her a check for $168.42 for “being my mama.” 

Jennifer hilariously added the caption, “Apparently, birthing and raising someone is valued at $168.42. I guess I should keep my day job.” 

Honestly? That’s being a mom sometimes. It’s thankless, even when you’re being thanked.

In addition to Sam, the Once Upon a Farm founder has two daughters, Seraphina and Violet that she shares with ex Ben Affleck. The two continue to be co-parenting goals, putting their kids at the center of their relationship and gracefully weathering tabloid drama.

From back-to-school germs to baking fails, we are here for all of Jennifer’s relatable mama moments. Whether she’s stuck in a parking garage or calling out Hollywood’s bad habit of typecasting women who become mothers, Jennifer always delivers truth in a really fun, engaging way.

Plus, she still has time to make treats.

Who could forget that time the Peppermint star rocked a bathrobe to rush her daughter onto the bus? “She barely made it to the bus on time, but at least her mother kept it classy,” Jennifer’s tongue-in-cheek caption reads.

What about when she received an offer she couldn’t refuse from her chocolate-loving child? This kid’s got her negotiating skills down well!

We also loved the result of her asking Sam to make labels for their spice jars. Who doesn’t love “meatbutt” spices? “That’s what I get for wanting funny kids,” Jennifer joked (in hashtag form) in the funny photo’s caption.

There was also the sweet moment that she asked Sam to be her forever date to Disney on Ice. Although, judging from this video, it almost seems like Jennifer who is the one who is most fascinated by the Disney on Ice proceedings… But we’ll allow it, because again: relatable.

We’re glad this mama is getting rewarded for all of her hilarity and hard work. Please keep sharing these adorable moments!
