An out-of-the-blue vomiting session in one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants on Wednesday evening — three times before we’d even ordered or were able to get her out of there, including once beside another patron’s table (a side of upchuck with your tortellini, sir?) — followed by an ear infection and pink eye today.  Pretty impressive, huh?  Yes, our daughter is an overachiever in the fine art of childhood ailments!

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)

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).
