"We didn't, like, continue," Kristen said about the aftermath of the OMG moment. "We sort of just went, 'Hey, what's up? What's up? What's up? What do you need?' And then we just said, 'Mommy and Daddy are just gonna take a nap for a couple more minutes...'"

6. When Drew Barrymore left these sweet notes in her kid's school lunch.

7. When Lin-Manuel Miranda took to Twitter to make a joke about something funny his kid did.
