'Nothing will make you feel younger, more productive—vibrant, if you will—than camping out with your child. 3rd kid = 3rd scout = 3rd zoo camp out. (Great job this weekend, @santabarbarazoo, @boyscoutsofamerica) #thelionsdidnotsleeptonight#allroarnosnore,' she captioned photo, posted Monday. 

The sequence begins at 7:15PM, and sees Jennifer wearing a head lamp while gazing towards the camera with a rather frustrated expression.

At 1:00AM, she frowned at the camera while buried under the covers. 

Then at 3:35AM, the actress appeared resigned at she laid on her bed, still wide awake.

In her final update, she posted a hilarious photo of the creepy figure.

'The rest of the day,' the photo read.  

Samuel is the youngest of the actresses three children with ex-husband Ben Affleck - the former couple also share Violet, 13 and Seraphina, 10.

The 13 Going On 30 star has revealed that although she is a strict party-pooping parent and gets called 'the dragon' by her brood, once a year she has a Yes Day where her kids get to do as they please.

Appearing on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, she confessed: 'If you're like me, I kill the fun. I am so lame. I say no to everything. They call me the dragon. They have all these names for me.'

However, the Peppermint star admitted it can be a difficult for her kids as they have to agree on what they want to do on the annual free-for-all.

She added: 'A 13-year-old and a seven-year-old have a different idea about what they'd like to get out of Yes Day. They have to agree 'cause it's just one day.'

Jennifer recently admitted that she has become more 'chilled out' when it comes to motherhood, according to Us Weekly

She said at INBOUND: 'I can't really complain about my kids. They're pretty awesome. They humour me. But I have chilled out and stopped trying to be my mom.'
