Jennifer Garner on her 'horrible job' with Violet's nursery

01/17/2008 at 02:30 PM ET

In her latest film role, Jennifer Garner, 35, plays an adoptive mother obsessing over preparing the baby’s nursery. However, the Juno star told Oprah yesterday that when it was time to make her personal picks in real life — for daughter Violet Anne Affleck, 2 — she made the wrong choices.

I did a horrible job picking the nursery. I picked stuffthat had no storage and immediately, you know, had a baby and all thisstuff came in and I said, ‘I need drawers. I need counters. I needthings — places to put things!’

Babies do need a lot of storage space! I think everyone forgets how much clothing and “stuff” little ones need ;)

As an aside Jennifer was fabulous in Juno. I thought her emotions were so very real. Her adoration as she looked at the baby – it made me think that must be how she looked at her own little Violet!
