The other day…

at the house of Squidge

Me (washing dishes)
Wal (in the living-room w/ Squidge)
Wal: do you think Squidge could be a baby model
Me(wondering what he’s going on about): uuuh yes, I think she’s gorgeous.
Wal: so do I

A couple of minutes later
Wal: So do you think we should contact one of those baby modeling agencies??
Me (walking into the living-room): I don’t think it would be a good idea- those kind of places screw w/ peoples head and well I don’t think I want anyone but us screwing Squidge up
Wal: well I think it’s a good idea…
Me (walking back into the kitchen and continue washing dishes)

Just an example of the nonsense that happens here. Baby modeling- give me a break, please.

    I’m with you. The one thing that comes to mind when I think of baby models is Jon Benet Ramsey and that photo of her in all the make-up that was plastered all over the news years ago. Something about it just gives me the heebs.

    Of course, it also goes against my feminist notions – parading my daughter around like she was a piece of artwork or something…. having her learn to rely on her looks, and at such a young age… it just seems wrong. But, that’s my opinion and I know many people will disagree.

    what in the hell is Wal thinking? Just what you need–lots of social time with the parents of Child Models. (shudder).
