Busy taping schedules apparently don’t excuse moms like Jennifer Garner and Brooke Burke-Charvet from carpool duty. Brooke recently told Us Weekly that she and Jennifer are both part of the same Malibu moms carpool, switching on and off driving duty.

Both moms have their hands full with their broods. Brooke and husband David Charvet have son Shaya, 4, and daughters Neriah, 12, Sierra, 10, and Rain, 5. Jennifer and husband Ben Affleck are parents to Violet, 7, Seraphina, 4, and Samuel, 12 months.

Jennifer has puzzled her own mother with how she can keep her busy schedule together, saying at CinemaCon, "[My mom] said, 'Can they take this back? Because every time I talk to you, you are breastfeeding, you are running carpool, you are on the library committee — you are not acting!'"

During Brooke’s battle with thyroid cancer, she had to stay in bed for several weeks and hand over her carpool duties, among other responsibilities. Thankfully, she is back to normal after thyroid surgery to remove the cancer, and back to regular shifts behind the wheel.

Sometimes we forget that celebs’ schedules can get this hectic, so we applaud Brooke, Jennifer, and all other moms — celebs and average Janes, alike — who manage to hold their lives and family together each and every day!
