Jennifer Garner's Son Gave Her a Check For "Being My Mama"

It came from 7-year-old Sam.

They say being a mom is a thankless job, but for Jennifer Garner, it seems to be paying off — literally. In a new Instagram post, she shared a check that she received from her son, Sam. Though we're not quite sure just how to cash a check from a bank called Piggy Bank, Garner was happy to share what she earned for simply being a mom.

The snapshot showed the check, complete with Sam's signature. In the "for" section, he simply wrote "being my mama." Cue the awwws.

"Apparently, birthing and raising someone is valued at $168.42," Garner captioned the post. "I guess I should keep my day job." She added the hashtags #iwouldbehismamaforfree and #ohwaitialreadyam.

Garner has three children. 14-year-old Violet, 11-year-old Seraphina, and Sam. She shares them with her ex-husband, Ben Affleck, and hasn't been shy about sharing her experiences being a mom on her social media feeds. Entertainment Tonight notes that just a few weeks ago, a commenter snidely remarked: "What do you call a movie star who makes no movies?" Her answer was straight to the point: "A mom!"
