Reese Witherspoon’s four-year-old son Tennessee James is working on his spelling, but one word is, understandably, giving him problems.

“When your name is TENNESSEE, it’s a bit tricky to learn how to spell it,” Reese, 40, captioned a photo of her son holding up a piece of paper with a valiant attempt scribbled on it.

“#PreSchoolProblems,” she hashtagged the snap.
