My First New Year’s Resolution

If I have to hear one more time about Augusta Wollard going to meet with the modeling agents in New York City on February 6…I will just continue to smile politely and redirect the conversation.  But honestly, Sondra Wollard is the most stuck up and boring person alive, and no one cares about what Augusta is doing for the entire year of February!

Of course Starling is constantly being stopped on the street and asked if she is a model and every single person who I have asked has agreed that Starling is by far the prettiest and smartest girl at her school.  For me, her education is just a bit more important than a career modeling and a lifetime of eating disorders because of feminism and so forth.  I don’t understand why the other moms all ask Sondra about her boring daughter’s boring meetings in New York, because they all must agree how tedious the topic is.  Not interesting, Sondra.  Please move on!

But me?  I’ll just continue being the superior person here and help some of the other, uglier little girls feel better about themselves by listening to their moms talk about the fucking travel team.

She was beautiful and smiley even as a baby!

Mama’s Mini-wallet

Merlin has had a very successful couple of weeks, booking many many ads and going on multiple shoots.  He has also convinced his daddy that he has had diarrhea the whole time, and that is why he is missing so much school. He is such a great kid.  Today he went back to school and he was all caught up on his work and had worked on an extra-credit science project too!  He also doesn’t complain a lick when I tell him he can’t eat, unlike certaain other angles I know.

I think he looks exactly like me!

Next week we have an out-of-town shoot and they are putting us up at a resort if I can manage to find overnight sitters for the other two.  Maybe I will let Röbert know that Merlin may have a dreaded illness and we have to go to an undisclosed hospital so they can rule out some scary and serious causes for his diarrhea.  Röbby needs to do a lil’ of the AM weekday parenting, I must say.  And I just love resorts!  All of those lovely cocktails!

Cute and Funny

This weekend Merlin had a shoot for some dreadful catalog which took up our entire day on Saturday.  Honestly, it is lucky he is being paid good money for these things because they are tedious.  Obviously it is a good thing that he inherited my good looks and all, but these catalogs are not exactly prestigious.  People keep stopping to tell me how darling he looks, but it isn’t like I can brag about him being in the Mervyn’s sale circular or anything.

Anywho, the photographer he was dealing with on Saturday was ridiculous, just a complete prima donna and poor Merlin is such a people pleaser that you could see he was really struggling with the moody guy.  But he kept changing into different dreadful outfits (why do they even make elastic waist cargo shorts? Why?) and smiled in every single last shot.

This morning, as he was getting ready for school he started dancing around the kitchen imitating the photographer, and he was so funny!  I think he takes after me in the charm department!

“No Merlin!  You need to turn the other way and look into the distance!” LOL!

I still haven’t heard from Heidi and Röbert has refused to ask for more money for his work, so I am glad to have my lil’ breadwinner.  I hope Röb doesn’t find out!
