Max Greenfield's Journey Through Homeschooling With His Daughter Is Hilarious
New Girl alum Max Greenfield and his
twin daughter, Lilly, have been trying to navigate this new world of homeschooling in recent weeks, and, well, it's not going all that great for them. Like many of us, Max is reaching deep into his brain to fish out what he can remember from his own school experiences; though Lilly says maybe if he hadn't spent so much time "puff puff puff"ing and "glug glug glug"ing through his own high school and college years (it's OK, we're not here to judge, Max), he'd remember more.
"God bless the teachers (the real ones)," Max captioned one of the videos, adding in another one, "#HomeSchooling #ProfessorGreenfield God Help Us All." Sounds like the mood in the Greenfield house matches the one in all of our homes.
Keep scrolling to see Max and Lilly's most hilarious clips of homeschool life (some of which feature choice phrases we can only imagine Max fed to Lilly prior to filming, though if he didn't, we are even bigger fans of Lilly than we originally thought).

He looks so hopeful!

The way he says "used" is so Schmidt that we need to go watch New Girl, stat (and the way he loses it in the middle is so accurate).
And Lilly's Response to His Reading in the Form of a Comment to Her Teacher
"My dad is having trouble." LOL.

Maybe he'd be more equipped to homeschool had he spent more time paying attention when he was in high school? Perhaps not.
