Most parents can attest to the fact that the first few weeks of a new school year can be a little chaotic, and Jennifer Garner is no exception.

“Everything shifts,” Garner tells PEOPLE. “It’s crazy town. I always feel like September is bananas, doing initial meetings, meetings for room mom, field trips. It’s crazy, but good.”

The busy mom of Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7 and Samuel, 4, her children with Ben Affleck, is also focused on raising awareness for a cause very close to her heart. Garner, also a longtime ambassador for Save the Children, has teamed up with Huggies during National Diaper Need Awareness Week. Huggies will donate 7.5 million diapers and wipes to Baby2Baby, where they will be distributed to families in need.

“Families desperately need diapers,” says Garner, 44. “And if they’re choosing between diapers and food for their kids, that is a problem. With enough of those stressors in a mother’s life, it leads to toxic stress. How is a child supposed to be a happy baby and sweet and interact if they are uncomfortable and they have a rash? This [donation helps to] lift that worry off mothers’ shoulders.”

Patton Oswalt continues to cope with the loss of his wife, while also adjusting to being a single parent.

In an interview with Conan O’Brien, the funny man got sentimental and candid about life in the wake of wife Michelle McNamara‘s unexpected death. The late crime writer died in her sleep in April.

“It feels weird to say it, ‘I’m a widower,’ ” Oswalt, 47, says. “And if I put it in really basic terms, I’m like every bad ’80s sitcom, where there’s a dad raising a kid by himself … except my ’80s sitcom sucks.”

He continues, “There’s no punchline, there’s a lot of insomnia, there’s a lot of me eating Cheetos for dinner. I’m waiting for my daughter to turn to the camera and go, ‘No wonder I’m in therapy,’ but … that moment’s not going to come.”

Ellen Pompeo is celebrating the premiere of the thirteenth season of Grey’s Anatomy, but in real life, she’s teaching her daughters how to celebrate aging.

“We get better with age,” Pompeo told PEOPLE of her advice to daughters Stella Luna, 7, and Sienna May, 2, at Philosophy’s Age of Cool event in West Hollywood, California, on Thursday.

“We should empower each other and have compassion for each other and help each other and feel good about ourselves.”

For Pompeo, who shares her girls with husband Chris Ivery, there is a lot of work needed to be done to achieve equality.

“I think there’s a lot of glass ceilings and we have to keep busting all of them,” she says. “So this is one glass ceiling that definitely needs to be broken. The truth is, we do get better with age. It’s just society has told us forever that we don’t. And for some reason we believe that because men want us to believe that they get better with age, but really it’s us who get better with age.”

Emily Blunt Is ‘So Relaxed’ with Second Baby: ‘Your Energy Is Not Like, “Oh My God, Am I Gonna Kill This Child?” ‘

Emily Blunt Extra

Emily Blunt‘s new baby is feeling the love from her big sister Hazel.

“She’s taken to it well,” Blunt told Terri Seymour on Extra about her 2½ year old daughter sharing the spotlight with 3-month-old Violet. “She’s doing brilliantly, she’s very kind to her … She was sort of indifferent, and then really loved her.”

Blunt, 33, says her newborn is “doing really well” — and she wonders if birth order really does affect her baby’s demeanor.

“I wonder if it’s the second kid — you’re so relaxed, and then they’re relaxed,” she says. “Your energy is not like, ‘Oh my God, am I gonna kill this child by something that I’m doing?’ ”
