Big Kid's teacher is hounding us about getting him into modeling.
She sent a note home the other day, cornered Mr. Ashley about it, called us to get our email, and emailed us the link to some talent agency that her neighbor owns.
She thinks his hat obsession is so cute that she bends school rules to allow him to wear it in the hallways and at recess (I don't totally approve of this. Life is a bitch and your kindergarten teacher next year may be too.)
Of course I love that he's clearly her favorite and this is PROOF that my kid is the cutest in the class.
Also, it is a fun idea.
HOWEVER, I have some concerns about this plan:
The cheese face--I just don't know that he's model material. The kid cannot smile normally on command. He suddenly looks like he's having an epileptic seizure or something. It's not cute. It's kind of funny, but not if you're really trying to accomplish anything attractive.
The time & effort--I'm really lazy. I'm also very mellow (to the point that it could be called apathy). I just don't know if I'm Stage Mom material.
Have you seen those bitches on "I know my kid's a star" on VH-1?
(one quick sec here...who decided Danny Bonaduce, infamous for being a violent hot head, should host a show with kids involved??)
I can't compete with that kind of ambition (read: desperation and psychosis).
Besides, I know he's a star without getting Danny Bonaduce involved...I don't know if I need to be getting dressed and driving around all kinds of places, begging him to behave, and waiting around and stuff.
It sounds like a lot of work. For me.
I am slightly interested because I could probably make some great photography contacts this way. But it may be another one of those marketing plans that never makes it off of the couch.
