I think a lot of us mums see our kids through rose tinted specs. My mum thought I was a beautiful baby. And I was, of course. She also thought my little sister was a beautiful baby. All I can say is when people came over to peek at her when she was out and about with my mother, they would more often than not say “Nice pram”…
Anyhoo – she grew into a beautiful young lady and got married way before me, so let’s not cry too hard for her. But I digress. Many mothers – well, most mothers, except probably me – definitely when my girls were tiny little ratty thingies – think their babies and kids are beautiful and think they will be the best thing to happen to kids modelling since…erm – whatever – they think they could be models.
And in many many cases, oh dear they are wrong. But in a few cases, they are so so right. And for those mums, I have something fabulous for you! How about your kids being the star of the next Gap/Baby Gap marketing campaign? Now obviously I have told Gap, that if I write about this, my girls have to win – but let us pretend you have a chance – here are some details for you. (OK that is a joke before you get blah blah on me)
Gap Casting Call is a global contest that invites parents to submit photos of their babies or kids (0-12 year olds) being kids i.e. curious, fearless, fun by June 7th and those lucky enough to get selected will be judged by the public on a Community Voting Website. Click here for details on how to enter.
Select Gap stores Nationwide will also play host to Casting Call shoots on 23/24th May, where kids can have their photos taken in specially created Photo Booths and be rewarded with a special offer to use in-store.
So put your money where your mouths are proud mammas, and get them kids a break in the modelling world. If I don’t get there first..
