On a Scale of 1 to 10, He’s an 11

Published by under Caleb Lee,Daneman Boys

Today I need to give a shout-out to our Bear. He’s been a-MAZE-ing in the kid and brother department these days. He’s rocking the school thing – getting up on his own, making his lunch, killing it in the grades department. He comes straight in from class and gets down to the business of homework – […]

Tuesday Evening Antics

Snippets of conversations I heard from the nursing chair last night at dinner time while Daddy and the boys served their plates: B: We heard the weirdest song on the way home from your baseball game on Sunday, Caleb.

First Day “Back” at Work

Maternity leave is over. <sad trombone> Today I started back to work (yes, on a Friday), after 12 wonderful (paid!) weeks getting to know the new addition to our family.

Fishing with Grandpa

I’ve mentioned that the new house has a pond just at the end of the street, right? Only, like, a bazillion times (more if you happen to be friends with me on Facebook). Guess what? That pond has fish in it. And you know who loves to go fishing? Grandpa. And you know who loves […]
