My Daughter Is a Pediped Model. Almost.

Sophie HeadshotI happen to have a Sophie. She is four, and she is beautiful. And now, she’s a runner-up in the Pediped casting contest! To be honest, I wasn’t expecting to get that far, except that she’s Sophie, and she’s beautiful. Did I say that already? Anyway, it got me wondering: Why aren’t more moms letting their babies answer casting calls?

Of course, not everybody wants their child in front of a camera, but I wonder how many people stay out of the game simply because they don’t know the rules. The thing is, it’s not that hard to get in. Most of it is signing up for a few mail lists, showing up when asked, and meeting a few of the right people. Toddlers and babies get gigs, both big and small, all the time– for commercials, package copy, magazine ads, and walk-on TV roles. And in Sophie’s case, Pediped shoe modeling. Almost. At least we have amazing shoes to show for it.

If you’ve thought about getting your baby a role of her own, we’ve got plenty of moms coming to the October Fun Fest event  to tell you how. You can do it. Maybe someday Sophie and your lovelies will share a set.
