Song Lyric Re-writes

Published by under Daneman Boys,Family Time

Do you remember that Friends episode where Ross and Rachel discover that Emma laughs every time they sing “Baby Got Back,” and so they repeatedly sing this wildly inappropriate (but awesome) song to their infant? Yeah, living in a house of boys is like that. All. The. Time. Some inappropriate songs we have been known […]

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. It was something about “that bass” J and C in chorus: Because I’m all about that […]

Sam’s Summer Vacation

Between unpacking a new house, a new baby, and baseball times 2, we didn’t take a family vacation this year. However, Sam got to go on his first solo trip. He hugged Dad’s neck (and Mom’s). Loaded up in Grandpa’s new truck.

Lessons Learned Living with Boys

Lessons I’ve learned (so far) from living with boys: You will find dirty socks everywhere – computer desk, couch cushions, in the sheets, your front passenger seat (yes, really, and let me tell you how nice that smelled after baking in Texas summer heat) – and they will never, ever be paired or even unrolled […]

Marching at Cowboys Stadium

Today, the BNHS football game was held at Cowboys Stadium. (Officially it’s AT&T Stadium, but sorry, it will forever be Cowboys Stadium to me. Just like the Rangers’ stadium will forever be the Ballpark – none of this Globe Life nonsense. But I digress). J’s band got to march on the field at Cowboys Stadium. […]

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 […]

69 Years. SIXTY. NINE.

As you might have seen on Facebook, we got together with the Daneman clan to celebrate Grandma and Grandpa Daneman’s 69th wedding anniversary. That’s right. SIXTY. NINE. Years. Together. That’s something pretty amazing to celebrate, don’t you think? Four generations of Danemania were together. Wonderful food was prepared and eaten: Cars were played with: Stories […]

PLANE Man

I think it’s universally acknowledged that having children teaches you volumes more than you expect – about yourself, the world, perspective. I’m also learning that it teaches you about your own parents. Take, for example, this morning’s conversation with Sam: Sam (gesturing to Daniel): Danny says, “When I’m 4 can I have a World War […]

Home, Sweet Home

As I mentioned in my last post, in April we sold our house and moved into a new one. We’re still in the same development, just a different section of the neighborhood. With another kiddo joining¬†the family¬†and both Bryan and I working primarily from home, we needed a little more space. We found a perfect […]
