It’s tough being a middle child!
On Monday, Jennifer Garner took to Instagram for a look back at her own experience as the middle child in celebration of National Middle Child Day.
“Attention seeker. 😃✅ Melodramatic. 😬✅ Peacekeeper. 🙏🏻✅ Middle sister, now and forever,” she captioned a sweet photo of herself and her two sisters, Melissa and Susannah, all crowded at the bow of a sailboat decades ago. All the girls crack smiles in the fun throwback photo despite looking back into the blinding sun.
The touching post comes just a week after the mother of three shared the story of another seafaring adventure (or perhaps misadventure) with her own daughter Violet. On Aug. 7, she posted a beautiful twilight photo of her and her 12-year-old in a kayak together along with a hilarious caption.
"On a pre-middle-school sneak away with my eldest," she wrote. "Did I get us lost in a kayak? Yes. Did we paddle as hard as we could for 100 hours and end up in a shipping lane? I’m afraid so. 😬 Did we have to be rescued? Yup."
