We often cite Kristen Bell as one of our celebrity mom role models due to her down-to-earth nature and relatable parenting adventures, despite her A-list status. Recently, the charismatic mother of two received a thoughtful hand-made gift from her kids and—like any other mom—is at a loss for what to do with her collection of unique creations her offspring have given her over the years.
Since it’s 2017 and Bell has millions of followers, she took to Instagram to ask the other mom’s out there what they do with their kids’ special works of art. Of course, fans found it absolutely hilarious and relatable.
Kristen Bell shared this photo of a hand-made gift her kids gave her and asked her other mom followers for advice on what to do with it.
Bell captioned the photo: “Serious question: what are you supposed to do with all the beautiful garbage that your kids give you?#momlife”
Surely, Kristen appreciates all of the “beautiful garbage” her kids make for her, but this is a legitimate question. What do moms do with all of that junk?
It makes me wonder about my own mom—between me and my two brothers, there’s no way she kept every single piece of “art” we gifted her over the years and I honestly can’t blame her. I’m sure they weren’t all prodigy creations.
Some moms suggested taking photos of the gifts before secretly tossing them out.
Others said to only hold on to the most important ones.
While some admitted to keeping everything in storage.
Probably what my mom did, tbh.
Of course, Bell isn’t the only celebrity parent who’s faced this dilemma—Ryan Reynolds also jokes about his daughter’s artwork.
Yes, Ryan yes.
