In her first exclusive blog for the iVillage blog series CelebVillage, iVillage's new celeb blogger, mother-of-three Jennifer Garner, shares with the iVillage community about her roles as actress and mom -- and how she connected on a deep level to her character in the new film The Odd Life of Timothy Green.
Garner is the mom-next-door and very relatable so we recommend reading her blog.
What keeps her up at night? Garner says, "How do I know if I'm getting it right? Isn't it my job to parent, to encourage, to help my child define themselves? Or should I step out of the way and let them be led by their passions? Do kids understand their passions without getting past the boring fundamentals?" Those are some big, philosophical questions.
And what about the Olympics? She posts, "If I ever see Michael Phelps' mother at a Subway, I will burst into hysterical tears from some kind of deep sense memory."
Garner also swears "there should be an entire movie around women and milk production." That's lactical.
