‘NCIS: LA’ Star Daniela Ruah Caught Her Kids Sharing the Sweetest Moment Together

From Country Living

NCIS: Los Angeles star Daniela Ruah caught her kids doing the most unexpected thing together.
She said she sometimes feels like her children “aren’t listening” but this proved her wrong.

Daniela Ruah is juggling a lot of responsibilities. Not only is she starring on NCIS: Los Angeles, but she’s also a mom of two kids and a wife to her husband, David Paul Olsen (who happens to be co-star Eric Christian Olsen’s brother).

Motherhood is definitely her most important job, though, and she often gets candid about some of the difficult times that come with being a parent. But that also means she gets to enjoy all the high points with River, 6, and Sierra, 3, as well.

Sometimes it feels like kids aren’t listening… but then I see this and I realize the concept of supporting each other is totally sinking in. Breakfast flash card practice in full force ♥️ pickles, pancakes and blueberries… don’t worry about it 🤣 . Ás vezes parece que os miúdos não nos ouvem… mas depois observo situações assim em que o conceito de se apoiarem um ao outro está bem presente. Aprender a ler com a mana ao pequeno almoço ♥️ panquecas, pickles e mirtilos… não se preocupem 🤣 . #kids #breakfast #morning #mama #proud #siblings #sister #brother #flashcards #reading #focus

For example, the 36-year-old was delighted to catch her kids doing the most adorable thing earlier in February—and she was kind enough to share it with all of us.

“Sometimes it feels like the kids aren’t listening… but then I see this and I realize the concept of supporting each other is totally sinking in,” she wrote alongside a photo of her son and daughter on Instagram. “Breakfast flash card practice in full force.”

As she mentioned, it looks like the kiddos are helping each other study. Maybe memorizing TV scripts will be in their future? Who’s to say!

What we do know is that we have follow up questions about said breakfast. Daniela pointed out that they were snacking on “pickles, pancakes and blueberries.”

Maybe we’ll just take her advice and “not worry” about the first one on that list…
