Christina Ricci is experiencing the joys of a school field trip.

On Tuesday, April 23, the actress, 44, shared a photo and a video on her Instagram from her 9-year-old son's field trip. Sitting in the back of the school bus, Ricci smirks at the camera in one photo, wearing big sunglasses.

Another video shows two school buses parked next to each other, with some of the students yelling out the window to the other bus.

"I chaperoned a 4th grade field trip today. I’m permanently deaf in one ear from the bus ride. ♥️," Ricci hilariously wrote in her caption.

The Yellowjackets star appeared on a March episode of Shannen Doherty's Let's Be Clear podcast, claiming that her son Freddie wasn't sleep-trained as a baby because her husband at the time, James Heerdegen, wouldn't help her when she returned to work.

"My husband at the time wouldn't help me with anything at all," Ricci claimed on the podcast. "I had to do all the night stuff and get up and go to work for 14 hours and be on camera."

"So, the only way to do that was to lie with him, and he would breastfeed whenever he wanted and sleep with me. I had to have him in my bed with me just to get enough sleep and be able to work the next day."

"I was basically doing it all on my own, so that part is tough, but you just get through it," Ricci continued. "You just keep going. I repeat to myself all the time, 'It's temporary.'"

At the time, a rep for Heerdegen did not respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

Later in the podcast, Ricci shared that commuting for the filming of Yellowjackets affected her relationship with her daughter, Cleopatra, who turned 2 in December.

"Last year I was commuting back and forth to Vancouver for Yellowjackets. She didn't know me. We had no bond. So that was very upsetting," she said.
