Candy Kirby

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).

  • This makes me LOL! My poor son suffers from SCS; I cannot remember when he took his first steps, when he got his first tooth, what his first word was…I don’t think I have a single picture with just him alone. But as revenge I’m fairly certain he’s going to be living with me til I die so…well played, Jake!

  • My brother thinks suffers from Second Child Syndrome. He doesn’t, he’s just self involved.

  • Ha this is soooooooooo true! I have barely taken any photos of my DS compared to my daughter.

  • as the oldest of 4 daughters in out hose I was the only one with a baby book. But! My mom did attempt to make notes on her second child, she just made them randomly in my baby book..on the edges of the pages..lol

  • There’s a subset of second child syndrome called Little Brother Syndrome. My Little Man has it and I bet Drew has it, too. Its hallmarks are being served dinner on Princess plates and drinking out of pink & purple sippy cups.
