The Laughing Stork

Word of the Day: Cannibaby

Cannibaby (n.)

1.  My ten-month-old daughter who prefers solid foods of the flesh variety*, sinking her six teeth into my neck, cheek and shoulder every chance she gets — and laughing when I yelp, “No!  Eating mommy is not allowed!”

2.  The reason I am shopping for turtlenecks in June.

[from Spanish Canibales, meaning pint-sized vampire]

*The author is most thankful this has not extended to nursing habits

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 who enjoy blanketing every inch of the house in kitty fur.
