While I was away at BlogHer, the boys stayed home with Steve. He made these little videos to share with me, and I want to share them with you too because they are the sweetest moments for my kids. Søren is falling asleep, something sweet for any mom of a toddler. He’s so active during the day and gets so cuddly when he is tired so it’s a moment I miss the most when I’m away.
Aiden spending his hard-earned Minecraft minutes. He’s been asking to do chores around the house for chore points to convert to screen time or money later. I’m so proud that he’s having thoughts about earning things and managing his resources responsibly.
What are your sweetest moments of the day?

Pardon me while I squeal from the cuteness, how sweet!
Such a sweet and thoughtful thing to do! My husband does this as well and I love when the girls are with their grandparents! They do this same thing!
This is absolutely precious! And I love the idea of converting chores into computer time. Genius 🙂
So cute. So darling.
Awwwwww!!!!!! How adorable! Aww I bet the house will be sparkling clean in the name of Minecraft minutes!!!! So cute!
My kids are always sweet to each other, so when I see them doing something generous for the other and then showing gratitude it makes my heart melt.
SO sweet! My nephews like doing things to be able to play Minecraft 😉
So much cuteness.
Precious videos! My favorite time is right before bed, cuddling up and reading books – I hope it never stops!
OMG I want to die from the cuteness
I love love those moments! Such a sweet video to be able to treasure. It’d be a good one to replay when you’re having a hard day.
those videos are so sweet esp the sleeping one! 🙂 i don’t have kids yet.. but whenever we’re away i have whoever is taking care of our cats, send me photos of how they’re doing. haha
How sweet is he for making these videos for you while you were away?! That is precious! Such great memories! <3
Awww! So precious! Thanks for sharing.
LOVE the videos!
Thanks, I’ll pass word on. 🙂
My favorite part of the day is coming home to my dog! The smile on his face is so uplifting!
Aww, I bet he is so excited to see you !
Thanks. I think so too but I’m a little biased.
It is so sweet that he watched the boys and that he made you those videos. You are very lucky!
Yes, I am. 🙂
Converting chore points to screen time is GENIUS. Saving this tip for when I’m a mom for sure!
The best thing is, I can convert them to anything and the rate is subject to change at any time, huzzah!
Aw, so sweet! How nice of your husband to capture those moments for you!
I agree. 🙂
this is soooo adorable! not only are these videos awesome quality (not surprising given your consistently awesome photography), but how sweet of your husband to capture these moments for you while you were away!
My little brother, who is 11 years younger than me, is absolutely obsessed with Minecraft. It’s one of the only things we have to talk about when we long-distance call each other!
Aiden never stops talking about it, lol. I should make the pic of the palm trees pixelated !
Ugh. I still melt when I see that video of Soren. And I LOVE Aiden playing Minecraft
Ikr, swoon. 😀
SOOOOO Much cuteness!!
That was just too cute for words.
He’s pretty adorable but I’m probably a bit biased.. 🙂
Oh my gosh, what an absolute sweet heart. Sorens face is just adorable!
sleeping time is my favorite. 😀
Awww, He did so well, both videos are so sweet! So much love!
The first video is the sweetest thing I have seen today! 🙂 It makes me want to cuddle him so much! 🙂
