A Model Child

From time to time I take Starling to an open casting for child models.  I also take her to visit modeling agencies, but the people who work at them are just terrible. How are we supposed to have an appointment if they won’t grant us an appointment?

In November we were at a casting and Merlin had a tummy bug so he had to come with us.  We were approached by someone from an agency in the city about Merlin, of all things.  I had a photographer put together a quick portfolio for him and he was signed.  I am a savvy negotiator, so they signed Starling too.  They haven’t found the perfect opportunity for her yet, but Merlin has been out for quite a few bookings.  Nothing prestigious, but the cheap newspaper inserts pay cash money and, as his manager, I get to keep some of it.

For the first time this weekend I saw him in a newspaper ad.  He actually looked darling!

Cheap suit, handsome model.

What do you know? Merlin will be making more money than his daddy in no time.

    Starling is way to conventionally beautiful to be a print model. They always pick the ugly kids, so other parents with ugly kids won’t be intimidated.

        You know Startling could be the next Lindsay Lohan. Her mother was her manager, she liked to drink and use drugs. So, little Startling is half way there. You definitely need to get her head shots done and start sending them out. Never too young for fame.

    Lah Lee, darling, Merlin looks adorable! You always work such magic with your littles! You know, you’re a single mom now, so a certain little sourpuss we know needs to start smiling toot sweet and get those modeling gigs to begin pulling her weight. Louis Vuitton doesn’t grow on trees, Starling! Mommy needs some cash money.

    I know of a terrific parenting manual by Christina Crawford. Let me know if you’d like to borrow it sometime. Wink emoticon.

    I don’t know what state of the Union you live in but I hope that pesky Coogan Act doesn’t interfere with all the shopping you’ll be doing with the money earnt by the model child.
