Hopefully, with the looming end of America's longstanding military involvement in Afghanistan, clips like this become all the more common as 2014 progresses.

CBS This Morning documented a surprise reunion in North Carolina, where Marine Sgt. Kyle Street came home early after his fourth deployment in six years.

When his wife opened the door, her reaction was priceless ... as was her response when asked about the first thing the couple wanted to do upon being reunited.

Questions that probably don't need to be asked in retrospect, CBS. The second clip below, in the same video, shows a different kind of military relationship.

Derrick Jenkins, 13, was shooting free throws at basketball practice just before his unexpected reunion with his mother, who had been on tour in Kuwait.

His reaction to seeing her creep up on him is amazing. Check it out!

Two girls under the age of 13 were reportedly given tattoos by a babysitter who was subsequently arrested - as was the kids' mother, for how she responded.

Three Virginia adults in all - the babysitter, mother, and her boyfriend - were all charged with felony child abuse after the situation went from bad to worse.

Much worse.

According to reports, Alexander Edwards (left), 20, recently decided to give the young girls tattoos while they were under his care. It's not clear why, or of what.

Soon enough, their mother, Melissa Delp (center), and her boyfriend, Daniel Janney (right), returned home and saw what Edwards allegedly did to them.

At that point, Janney tried to remove the tattoos himself ... by burning them off.

"There was an effort to cover these tattoos up," said a sheriffs' department officer of the children. "It didn’t help the situation any. It added more scarring."

Taylor Smith, a 12-year-old Tennessee girl, recently passed away, at which point a letter she had written to future self (to be opened in 2023) was unearthed.

Smith outlined some life goals in the April 2013 letter, with the instructions "To be opened by Taylor Smith on April 12, 2023 only (unless said otherwise)."

The letter stayed hidden for the rest of her life, which was cut tragically short.

Just a few months after writing the heartfelt message to her 2023 self, young Taylor passed away from complications after a sudden onset of pneumonia.

Her grieving parents found it while sorting through her possessions:

  • Taylor Smith Letter
  • Taylor Smith Photo

Warmed by the memories of their daughter, Tim and Mary Ellen Smith decided to post it online, in the hopes that it would give others some solace.

In the letter, Taylor wrote to her 22-year-old self like an old friend:

"I'm know I'm late to you, but as I'm writing, this is early, so: congratulations on graduating high school! If you didn't go back and keep trying. Get that degree!"

It started as a mere Tweet.

And it has grown into a national debate.

On Saturday night, celebrity chef Grant Achatz Tweeted a complaint that a crying baby inside the restaurant Alinea was causing major problems.

“Tbl brings 8mo.Old. It cries. Diners mad," he wrote. "Tell ppl no kids? Subject diners 2crying? Ppl take infants 2 plays? Concerts? Hate saying no,but..”

Achatz then appeared on Good Morning America and added:

“I could hear it crying in the kitchen. We want people to come in and enjoy and experience Alinea for what it is, but we also have to be cognizant of the other 80 people that came in to experience Alinea that night.”

Achatz's 82,000 Twitter followers seemed split on whether or not babies should actually be banned from expensive restaurants, while we'd rather see some awful Hollywood mothers barred instead.

What do YOU think? Should babies not be allowed in high-end eateries?

Kids. They don't just say the darndest things. They also write the darndest things.

Take this note, for example, in which a student tells his teacher to get well soon… by pooping.

And now consider the following note, penned by an eight-year old many years ago and recently discovered by his mother.

She posted it on Facebook and included along with it an explanation that says the apology was "only a first draft," the victim was not seriously hurt and all siblings are now "grown men and very close."

That's good to know. Because at one point, man, Zachary REALLY hated Chris:

Hilarious Apology Note

Jon Gosselin hates to say he told us so, but...

For the past few weeks, the former reality star has been trashing his ex-wife, referring to Kate Gosselin as broke and greedy and expressing outrage that she still used the ex-couple's children for publicity.

Then, this morning, this happened:

Kate dragged twins Cara and Mady on The Today Show to dispel the notion that they've been ruined by all the attention... only for the kids to grow silent when the topic arose.

And for Kate to scold the on national television.

Blue Ivy Carter turned two years old on January 7.

It was a big occasion for the toddler, one we marked with a Blue Ivy birthday tribute and one her famous parents celebrated by closing down Jungle Island in Miami, Florida for a giant party.

Queen Bey and Jay-Z were on hand, of course, and so were friends such as Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. All three women rocked some butterfly face paint for the occasion, while Blue opened presents and everyone seemed to have a grand time.

But don't take our word for it! Toggle through photos posted online by Beyonce herself and relive the celebratory occasion:

Celebrating with Blue
AWW! Blue Ivy is two years old. She celebrates here with her mom.

Panera Bread trying very hard to dig itself out of an embarrassing hole.

Last week, an assistant manager at a Savanna location told a mother than she had to take off her two-year old daughter's shoes - because a customer complained that they squeaked too loudly - or leave the restaurant.

It turns out, however, that the child was wearing special orthopedic footwear because she has a developmental disorder.

"It was very hurtful, and I left the store crying, not a very good thing for a mom to feel like her child is being discriminated against," the mother, Catherine Duke, told WTOC.

Another scary movie, another awesome prank.

Following last year's Carrie joke - in which the PR machine behind that film made people believe a coffee shop patron was possessed - the producers behind Devil's Due have come out with their own frightening promotion.

It involves the sidewalks of New York City. A seemingly abandoned stroller. And what appears to be an innocent baby inside, waiting for concerned citizens to check on him.

Only this is no innocent baby. It's a robot that lets out a scream - and vomits and flips off the police - when approached, leaving folks to react in terror. Amazingly hilarious terror.

If this story doesn't bring a tear to your eye... well, you may need new eyes.

On January 6, Shanell Mouland sat in the window seat of a flight from Florida to Philadelphia. By her side was her three-year old daughter, Kate, who suffers from Autism, and by her side, in the aisle, was a stranger in a business suit.

In an open letter (titled "Dear 'Daddy' in Seat 16C") soon after the trip, Mouland wrote that she was initially scared her child would "pour water all over" this man's "multi-million dollar contracts," but was then amazed to be proven wrong.

Very, very, very, very wrong.

The man ended up being exceedingly kind and patient with Kate, not even correcting the toddler when she called him "Daddy."
