Reaching for the Stars

Reaching for the Stars

Skylar turned a big corner this weekend.  Instead of demanding to be held during all of her waking hours, she is now content to just sit and stare at her mobile as its lambs, stars and cloud-covered moon go ’round and ’round.  She will even talk to the mobile for moments on end, much as I imagine Courtney Love holds long, deep, babbling conversations with similar inanimate objects.  Skylar’s only cries are those of frustration, when she reaches for the stars and they prove to be out of her grasp.

May you always reach for the stars, Miss Skye.

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
