Friday Roundup: What I Learned This Week


Friday Roundup: What I Learned This Week

A1 Steak Sauce is the perfect complement to baby leg rolls.

Chubby baby fingers are delicious even without seasoning.

You can be having a truly crappy week — one complete with a four-month-old who wakes up CONSTANTLY throughout the night and naps terribly during the day despite your best efforts, a flea infestation, neighbors who make you so mad you keep telling them off over and over again (in your head), and a fever of 102 (yes, I’m miserable) — and all it takes is your two-year-old daughter jumping on your lap where you’re holding the baby, enveloping both of you in a big hug and saying,  “Baby Drew and ‘Kylar.  Mommy’s two babies,” to make you think:  Maybe life isn’t so bad, after all.

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).
