Jennifer Garner is just like you. Okay, so maybe she’s a superstar celeb and you aren’t. But that doesn’t mean she isn’t a regular ol’ mama with regular ol’ mama issues, just like the rest of us. Garner recently posted a pic on Instagram of her live steaming her kiddo’s school talent show. And we are loving just how real the actress’s post is.

Like many of us, Garner is a working mom. Yeah, yeah, she has a pretty rad job. Come on, she gets to play dress-up on an adult scale and gets paid handsomely for it. But her celebrity status doesn’t mean she doesn’t have some of the same struggles that every other mother has.

Whether you’re working in a cubicle, waiting tables, have the corner office or are a super-famous Hollywood actress, sometimes you have to miss those “special” moments in your kiddo’s life. And that’s exactly what happened to Garner recently. While filming, Garner had to live stream the school talent show, adding on IG, “Live streaming the school talent show from set = have your cake and eat it, too.”

Garber got plenty of applause and positive comments from her fans (who also seem to understand the challenges of being a working mother). One fan commented, “Very creative way to still be there! @workingmom” and another wrote, “Awwww!!! It’s so hard not being able to be there for everything but this really is when technology is awesome.” And we totally agree.

Do you have a creative solution to missing out on your kids’ activities or events while you’re working? Tell us in the comments below.
