On one hand, I am so excited for these people as the mom and the daughter are awesome people. The daughter is as cute as a bug and certainly very photogenic. I can totally see why they would select her as the winner.
On the other hand, I am so bothered by this that it has caused me to dig deep into my heart to figure out why I don't want them to have this. I have discovered the horrible truth...I am jealous. At first I thought it was jealousy because I wanted my daughter to model, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that wasn't it. It was even uglier than that.
When I was about 10, I was signed up at a modeling school. I went with a friend because for that day only it was free. I guess it was their way to
Then came the utter disappointment, I was out. Helga or Olga or one of those Swedish names came in the door off the street and stole my scholarship. Evidently it doesn't matter how cute you are, if you don't pay your dues, you don't go anywhere. I was left with the wonderment of what might have happened had things been different and I could have paid for the class.
I do realize that I most likely would have never really been a model. Not that I'm a dog, but I am not exactly high fashion model pretty. The point is that they got my hopes up only to dash them into the gutter. I don't want that for the daughter nor the mom because it really sucks. I pray that it's nothing but wonderful for them and that I see the daughter on the cover of Vogue one day. On the up side, I don't recall ever seeing Olga on the cover of anything... :-D
