As I held my sleeping child and stared into her beautiful visage I thought: I wonder what she’d look like with a coat of mascara? And then it hit me: baby portraits! A little rouge, a little lip stick and some pearls? Why stop there? A little shiner and baby sized baseball glove? A bloody medical coat and a mini stethescope? Some five o’clock shadow and pint size brief case??!! You get the picture. I think this could really go somewhere. Drunken Sailor? Starbucks Barrista? Bearded Lady? Who wouldn’t want this for posterity? And who wouldn’t want to look back at themselves at ten months, posing as a secretary drunk at her Christmas staff party? My daughter will thank me.
