A Wiggle and a Waddle November 12 2017 2 Comments
Any day now we will be welcoming our first grandchild - a girl. I know her already, in my heart, and I can hardly wait to see her little face.
Baby Girl will take after both her loving, creative, superhero mother, and her wears-his-heart-on-his-sleeve, born-to-be-a-dad father. And she will embody some piece of all of us who have gone before her.
But what I am most looking forward to meeting is the Baby Girl that is uniquely her, encountering qualities that make us wonder, “Where did she get that from?”
Within days of hearing the thrilling news that she is on her way, I knew I wanted to write and illustrate a book, for her.
Writing simple words that are fun, rhythmic and tell a story is harder than I imagined. I have a couple dozen half-written concepts.
I did, however, bring one to fruition. A Wiggle and a Waddle is a magical, fantastical bedtime story that goes through a day in the life of wee ones, in a land that seems not quite real – but, you never know.
This is my “Welcome home” love story for our baby girl.
