Ashley took to Twitter to share a sweet screenshot of a text message conversation between her son Grayson and her husband Garrett. Grayson used Ashley’s phone to send this adorable mirror selfie and let his dad know that he “got dressed all by my self.”

Garrett sent back a kind reply telling Grayson he “did a great job” and Grayson seemed to appreciate the praise. While the text at first seemed like a silly moment between a child and his father turned out to be so much more.
