The Soon-to-Be Big Sister

Also known in some circles as The Girl Who Pushes Kids Away When They Try to Hug Her Mom and The Stinker Who Screams Jealously When Her Mom is Holding a CAT.

Yeah, this whole introduction to her new sibling thing should go swimmingly!  But just to be extra cautious, I’m thinking we’d better secure the new baby in a double layer of bubble wrap.  Plus a helmet.

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).
