Week 30, Daddy Time


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. Sรธren 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 forย 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?
A portrait of my child once a week, every week in 2014. To see the whole series, clickย here.
