Every kid does funny stuff, whether it's asking innocent questions out loud to strangers ("Is that his butt?") or a toddler attempting to play hopscotch on the paver stones of the mall sidewalk while you're trying to rush to a store, a baby wanting to see how many toys will float in the dog's water dish, or a kid constantly asking to play with the "pad" - until you realize you've been saying "We'll play with my iPad later" translates as "We'll play with my pad later" to a kid... We've all been there. These are the many funny little moments that happen between me and my child - or between you and your child - that happen a thousand times a day, and we laugh and move on, too busy to really take note and too small to remember, but if we could only write them down what a beautiful little basket of memories we would have. My kid is probably no funnier than yours. It just all happens so fast that we wonder where the time went, so I tried my best to write some of it down. I hope you enjoy it, and that it brings back some sweet memories for you that you had forgotten about. You will see yourself 100 times over in these stories. You will laugh and the same moments that you experienced with your kids, but had forgotten about. And maybe you’ll remember some stuff that your kids will wish had remained forgotten! You’ll smile at the birth of a child. You’ll worry through the night about a strange illness. You’ll cry at the passing of a beloved family pet. You’ll enjoy watching a child explore her new world, and ask questions that make complete sense to her – but nobody else, except maybe another child. You’ll dance (or want to) at the happy ending, and realize that we all have a lot in common when it comes to our families. In the blink of an eye, our kids are grown up. We wonder where the time went. Long days and short years. It goes by fast. Revisit those days with us, and enjoy again some of the best times of your life.Biographie de l'auteur :
Dan Alatorre was born in Hamilton, Ohio, and graduated from the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business. A few years later, he went on to earn an MBA from Tampa College. Dan was just a normal guy doing normal things until he and his wife were blessed with a baby - when he was about 47 years old! Some will argue he was never a normal guy, but nobody will argue that the addition of a bouncing baby girl changed his life. Savvy’s family consists of Mommy (Michele), her Daddy (Dan), her dog Buddy and her cat Kitty. They all live together in Lutz, Florida, on Tampa’s north border.
