Everyone needs something happy to come home to after a long day at work. For Tia Mowry-Hardrict, that something is none other than her adorable 2 1/2-year-old son, Cree!

On March 6, Tia posted this sweet photo of herself and Cree getting some much-needed cuddle time at the end of the day. The busy mama currently stars on Nickelodeon’s Instant Mom, which means she’s often away on set for long hours.

Cree looks to have rushed to hug his mom as soon as she walked in the door from work. And luckily, Tia had a camera on hand to capture the entire thing in a joyous selfie. “This is what I come home 2!! #purebliss,” Tia, 35, wrote alongside the pic.

She’s grinning wide, giving the camera her most excited face. Cree has his arms wrapped around her, leaning up to give mom a kiss on the check. The photo’s a bit blurry, but that’s okay. Tia likely had to rush to document Cree’s sweet kiss before it was finished. Action shot!

We have just one question: What happened to Cree’s hair? The tot usually sports a long, curly fro... but it’s noticeably missing in this shot. Judging from the photo, we’re willing to bet his hair’s just tied back right now. But can you imagine if he did cut it all off? What a change that would be!
