For her birthday this year, my wife Denise suggested that what she’d like was for Ryan and Chris and I to write her a song.  So we sat down over the course of a few nights and came up with this piece.  First Ryan and Chris worked out the words, with a bit of help from a rhyming dictionary.  Then Ryan sat down at our little MIDI keyboard and cranked out the verse melody in about 10 minutes.  Chris did the same with the hook melody, and Daddy added just a modicum of harmony.  Ryan played piano, Chris added some percussion, and Ryan takes the trumpet solo in the middle, blasting it out by ear in a couple takes!  So here, in its world debut, is “We Love Mommy”:
