Reese Witherspoon’s Homeschooling Photo Will Make Every Parent Say ‘Same’

Reese Witherspoon is getting candid about how she (literally) balances working from home and homeschooling her children.

Yesterday, the Little Fires Everywhere star, 44, posted a slideshow on her personal Instagram account that will make every parent say, “Same.”

The first pic shows Witherspoon sitting in a suspended chair on a FaceTime call. It might sound relaxing, but there’s a catch. Her 7-year-old son, Tennessee Toth, is riding the chair like a swing, with his feet—as demonstrated in the second photo—dangling in the actress’s face.

Witherspoon captioned the post, “Really nailing this WFH/homeschooling life. #CanICallYouBack?”

We totally relate to Witherspoon’s dilemma, since millions of parents are simultaneously working and homeschooling their children due to the coronavirus pandemic. While channeling a monkey is not part of your typical curriculum, it seems right up Tennessee’s alley.

Witherspoon shares Tennessee with her husband, Jim Toth. She also has two children with ex Ryan Phillippe, Ava (20) and Deacon (16). Earlier this week, Witherspoon shared a never-before-seen photo of her three children gazing out the window, and we can’t decide which one of her kids looks more like her.

The BLL star wrote, “So lucky to be the Mama of this crew!”

Even it means never being alone…ever again.
