School supply shopping is one of the many nuisances that parents take on during the back-to-school season. And actress and mom Reese Witherspoon isn’t exempt from that frustration! She posted a photo to her Instagram, complete with a filter she borrowed from Snapchat featuring animated glasses and hair buns. The caption reads, “Are you seriously telling me TODAY about all the school supplies you need Tomorrow?”
“How to talk to your kids on Snapchat…the filter adds a much more serious tone, don’t you think? 📚 #momlife #backtoschool,” the Instagram photo’s caption reads.
Commenters seem to appreciate such a relatable post from the star:
“Or how about, ‘Mom I need 100 feathers for school tomorrow’ as I’m getting him ready for bed. Lol,” wrote Instagram user michelle_m_filic.
“Comforting to know this is ‘normal,’ no matter where we come from in this world, or who we are,” commented anettevaldersnes.
Reese is mom to Ava, 19, Deacon, 15 and Tennessee, 6. With three kids, who could blame her for turning to Snapchat as a way to reach her kids (and scold them over last-minute requests)? It’s refreshing posts like these that bond working moms over the struggles that come along with back-to-school-season.
