Nine Months

Happy nine-month birthiversary, Miss Skye.  You sure have come a long way since, say, your nine-day birthiversary:

I know, right?  Who IS that kid?  Now you’re playing Peek-a-Boo, crawling across the room faster than I can yell, “Spit out that kitty kibble!”, smiling flirtatiously at any stranger who pays attention to you (Attention monger.  Wonder where you get THAT from?  *Ahem*) and babbling nonstop like Courtney Love, only more coherent.

I say this as a completely objective professional:  You’re the best.

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).
