The popular Today star indicated that her children were sick at home, but one of her sons helped brighten her day.
She shared a heartwarming social media post featuring a handmade note she received from her son Cal amid the struggles.
The words “I LOVE” were written in black above a large heart around the word “YOU” on a white sheet of paper.
“This morning was pure chaos because kids are sick and no one has slept. All Cal wanted to do was make me smile before I left. That’s all it took!” Dreyer wrote in her Instagram post’s caption.

Dylan celebrated the ‘leader of our pack’ on his birthday
Last month, Dreyer shared an Instagram carousel post celebrating her oldest son, Cal, on his birthday.
“7 years ago, I became a mom! It was a wild night and now our little Cal is the leader of our pack. Happy Birthday buddy! You are so loved and bring us so much joy!!” she wrote in the caption.
The first photo featured a smiling Dylan seated next to her husband Brian, who had one arm around her and gave a thumbs-up sign.
Additional images were shown from the archives, presenting her son Cal. In an adorable family photo, he is smiling, seated on stairs inside the home with his two younger brothers.
The final slides of Dreyer’s post show the gorgeous and delicious-looking cake she served. In a video clip at the end of the post, Dreyer cuts and removes a slice of the cake to reveal lots of colorful sprinkles and candies in the middle.
Cal’s recent note to his mom shows how appreciative he is of her attention, love, and care early in his life!
