The Tween Zone

Published by under Jacob Earl

Do not adjust your tv sets (or computers). . . you have now entered. . . the TWEEN ZONE (do-do-do-do do-do-do-do). He’s at times moody, pouty, and downright surly. But 5 minutes later, he’s the happy, sweet kid we love to pieces (we love him to pieces even when he’s not happy, but it’s a […]

Being a nerdy English-major- and copyeditor-type, I often claim the ability (sometimes the NEED) to create new words. However, I can’t take credit for this one. It goes to Sam’s Daddy. So, what is Sammunition? Spit-up launched at your clean clothing or hair? Sammunition. Loud, stinky burps or farts? Sammunition. Explosive poopy or leaky diapers? […]

That Woman

We all know her. She’s that woman who fusses at the teenagers from two houses down (who really aren’t doing any harm, or even being loud) to not lay in the street at night in dark clothes. She’s that woman who looks down her nose hautily at the too-short skirts and shorts and low-cut tops of […]

Published by under Samuel Lewis

Lighter Notes

Well, y’all, thanks so much for the support from last night’s post. Really and truly, it helped more than you know.  And, since the last two posts have been rather downers (okay, truly downers), to prove I’m not always a negative Nellie, this post will be more fun.

I have to confess something. I have a jealous streak – a big one. I try to suppress it, and most of the time I’m successful. But there are days when I don’t do so well at controlling my green-eyed monster. Sometimes it rears up when I least expect it. Like the way my husband […]

Night Terrors

Published by under Daneman Boys,Family Time

No, I’m not talking about the kind that children have – the kind where your little one wakes up SCREAMING for no apparent reason, and simply will not be comforted (in many cases, your little one isn’t even really awake) by any of the normal devices. I’m talking about parental night terrors. The worries that […]
