Weekends with the kids
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck took the kids arts and crafts shopping on Saturday, 8 days since his last papped outing with the children, during which he held a boot up to the camera and claimed it was for demonstration purposes only. He was spoken to at home, no doubt. This is not the picture Mrs Affleck has worked so hard to perfect and present. This is how she won him his Oscar. And this is how she’ll fix it for him again, taking the girls out for the weekend, because the paps hang out at Michael’s for glue guns and wicker baskets all the time, and at the John Varvatos 10th Annual Stuart House Benefit on Sunday where the Afflecks shared the stage and even showed some affection. Garner really doesn’t get enough credit for being the architect of their success. But goddamn, after all these years, I still can’t with her clothes. There had to have been a better shoe option here. That dress could fit better. And did we HAVE to go with a pink cardigan? Did we have to? Would the MiniVan Majority have revolted if we’d picked a cute leather jacket or a structured blazer?
