Meet the Author

Eric Ruhalter works in television in NYC, making commercials about movies. At night, he comes home to his wife Kara and their three rambunctious children. There, he's able to step inside of himself to write down the unique and unusual observations that inspire him. He also enjoys editing video, pimping his work via social media, surfing, Frisbee, and ping pong. He studied economics at Dickinson College where he learned that he's not the least bit interested in the theories of economics. So rather than study, he spent most of his time writing.

The kid dictionary is an awesome must read. I thank Eric Ruhalter for sharing his words to describe kids with other parents and the world. Using humor to get past the challenges of parenting is one of the best anecdote, because at times we don't have a choice but to move along and smile about the things they say and do.
