What Goes Around

ME:  You know, it really sucks…

MY MOM:  What’s that?

ME:  The fact that I sit here, cradling my sick daughter all night long without getting any sleep myself day after day, and in thirteen years she’s going to scream, “I HATE you!” because I won’t buy her an overpriced mini-skirt.

MY MOM:  I’m so glad you had a kid.   Now you understand.

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).
