Jennifer looked super chic while heading inside the studio for her interview, where she opened up about the yearly event with her kids.

“I started reading this book, Yes Day, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal years and years ago to my daughter and she just used to say, ‘I dream of a yes day. I dream of a yes day.’ So I finally decided to do a yes day,” Jennifer explained.

She added, “I set up some rules. [I said], ‘We’re not going to buy things’ — although we usually buy lottery tickets or something small — but [I do] something I wouldn’t normally do. So, we do it every year and it’s always something they can make me do what they want…They had ice cream for breakfast. We had a fort inside. We stayed up late!”

Check out the entire interview below…

    Yes day or not, buying lottery tickets for your kid is just weird and a bad example.

    They are trying to spread a “cutsie” down home image of this horrible woman who drove affleck to drinking and gambling. She is sickening

  • Amber

    Ben Affleck has always been a fuck up. Gwyneth Paltrow said it herself after they broke up- he always seems to get himself in trouble. I believe he had drinking and gambling issues long before Jennifer Garner. And he did cheat on her with the nanny. The man doesn’t know a good thing when he has it! He likes to self implode.

  • Visitor

    Usually a woman expects a man to grow up & be a good husband &father when they have children. The sad thing is Ben has made himself more responsibility now with their children than he ever did as a team with Jen!
