Dylan Dreyer loves nothing more than being a mom - but she isn't afraid to admit when she's feeling challenged, either!

At the start of the week, the Today star took to Instagram to share a query about her son Calvin's homework — which had her thoroughly confused. 

The mother-of-three shared a photo of her five-year-old son's math question, which got her overthinking.

It read: "Juliana has 18 carrots. Noah ate 8. How many carrots does Juliana have now?"

In the caption, Dylan wrote: "Maybe I’m overthinking this but I contend Juliana still has 18 carrots! #1stgradehomework."

Fellow parents had very different opinions regarding the correct answer - while many were agreeing with Dylan, overs told her that it wasn't as complicated as she assumed.

"It's ten. This is a simple maths solving problem folks, no tricks," one wrote, while another replied: "Don’t over think a first grade problem….. subtract and get the answer." A third added: "I think you are overthinking this situation Juliana shared her carrots."

Others were more on Dylan's wave length though. "I agree. It doesn’t say Noah ate her carrots," one wrote, while another added: "As a retired English teacher, these types of problems make me crazy! These are never worded to eliminate vagueness!"

Dylan - who is also mom to three-year-old Oliver and one-year-old Russell (Rusty) - often shares relatable posts on social media concerning her home life.

Just last week, the NBC star - who is married to Brian Fichera - shared a photo of her receipt after a trip to the grocery store, leaving fans shocked at just how little she got for $50 in New York City.

She also often posts photos from inside her NYC apartment, where she is raising her three young sons.

Her husband made sure that she didn't feel too bad about it back at home, and surprised her with a sweetest gesture, cheering her up with a vase of flowers, alongside a note which read: "It's just wodrs," mistakenly writing "words" wrong, a subtle nod to her on-air blunder.

Sharing the thoughtful surprise on Instagram, Dylan wrote in the caption: "How the cameraman tries to cheer me up after I stumbled through tonight's weather forecast! He totally gets me!"
