Daddy on Board Tales from the Front Seat, Volume 1 by Christopher (Aston University) Smith

Was the world created by a stuffed animal named Panna Bear ? How do you explain to your mom that every time she sees her grandson he's injured? What do you do when your 4-year-old boy discovers a Victoria's Secret catalog? Discover the answers in Daddy On Board: Tales from the Front Seat, a collection of hilarious true stories straight from the front lines of daddyhood. Hitch a ride as this thirtysomething dad faces long work weeks with imaginary dragons, yaks and swords. Join him in a restroom break as he tries to keep a potty-trainee from touching anything. Learn a millennium version of Don't make me stop this car and come back there! Christopher Smith is a real Daddy, who changes diapers and kisses boo-boos while fixing the kitchen sink. Parents, grandparents and parents-to-be will see themselves in his insightful slices of family life, and everyone will enjoy comments from the child he calls The Boy, who observes, Some days it's hard. Some days it's not. Some days it's pudding.
