Just a reminder to submit YOUR mama-licious photo — one that you believe captures motherhood — to win more than $300 worth of beauty and parenting goodies.  All you have to do is become a fan of The Laughing Stork on Facebook and upload your photo by end of day Saturday.  Good luck!  [TLS on Facebook]

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).
