The Good News/Bad News Bear

A family member with the best of intentions — and eyeglasses with an outdated prescription — gave this homemade bear to Skye for her birthday.  The good news:  I think the proceeds from the sale of the bear went to an animal charity of some sort.  The bad news:  Mr. Bear passed away before we even had a chance to get to know him.  But his memory lives on in my nightmares, where he continues to haunt me (when he’s not doing so from the comfort of our couch… I’m afraid to move him!).

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).
