Riding in the Car With Children and Other Travesties of Adulting.
By Christopher P. Stanley

Series Description:

As a father of four children ranging in ages from 12 years to 21 months, Christopher Stanley is....tired. Riding in the Car with Children and Other Travesties of Adulting is a collection of short stories detailing the awful, stressful - and humorous - trials and tribulations in which parents and caregivers find themselves at the end of each day as they tenuously cling to their last bits of sanity. 

Exasperating as these situations can be, these stories also convey a tender overarching message to enjoy these days while we can, as they will surely be gone in the blink of an eye. Sit back and enjoy one family's chaotic tale of life, love and despair. Welcome to adulting.

Author Bio For Christopher P. Stanley:

Christopher P. Stanley grew up in Grove City, OH and had a childhood that centered around imagination, play and exploring the outdoors (mixed in with a healthy amount of Nintendo). A large part of his, perhaps over-active, imagination is owed to books that filled him with wonder - and continue to do so to this very day! 

Christopher is an author and co-founder of Jump Splash Books, where he aims to highlight imagination and celebrate the joy of childhood through his stories. His first children's book, The Tree Watcher, was published in 2015 and his second children's book, I Dreamed I Was a Bird, was released in 2016. His third book, I Dreamed I Was a Reindeer is set for release in November, 2016.

Christopher graduated from Ohio Dominican University with a degree in Education, and has been an educator for the past 10 years in both the K-12 and Higher Education settings.  He currently lives in Columbus, OH with his wife, Morgan, and their four children, from which he draws inspiration for his serialized short stories, Riding in the Car with Children and Other Travesties of Adulting available on Channillo.com.
