Lesson learned!

So, no new pictures, but I pulled 1 from last weekend. We had a fab-u-lous weekend!! Spent the 103 degree Saturday by the pool at Whitewater (this really was our last trip this season) and it was great when you were in the water- but don't get caught bare feet on cement....aaawww.. I relate it to a hot coals episode! Then we had a great time at our church picnic on Sunday. They had a dunk tank, lots of food and let us not forget the jumpy thing for the kids. I actually did not see much of Davey, b/c he spent 90% of his time jumping. He has a little girl that he has bonded to in his Sunday school class named Katherine. She is blond, blue-eyed, and she and Davey hold hands ALL THE TIME! I don't think I ever see them not holding hands! Well at the picnic they spent a good portion of time jumping and holding hands. Man... where's the camera when you need one! But a relaxing weekend and fun with my boy.
This week however has seemed a non-stop go..go..go! Let me paint the scenario for you... Davey's Godmother, Gini ran into a person from a modeling agency. She gave the lady my phone and information about Davey. I didn't think much of it at the time, but spent the next few days playing phone tag with this girl. She invited Davey to a consultation with the agency and to be honest all I thought was-" I am not putting any money into this!" We had 30 minutes to get to Midtown Atlanta at 6pm after work- and she stressed you could not be late! What a scam it all is! First of all there was about 50 kids in the room, none of which were as young as Davey. Then they sit you in this room for 25-30 minutes watching a video that was not in any way, shape, or form geared toward Children & my 3-year old was having none of it. Then this agent (who was somewhat charming, but very arrogant) goes thru the what to and how to... and I'm like he's 3!! What does a 3-year old know about acting, movies and Hollywood. Obviously this is for children that have a talent they are wanting to flaunt or have been doing pageants and such. They give you this sheet to fill out and it asks the 10 reasons you want to be in show business. I found this an appropriate place to put as many humorous lines as I could think of in that 25 minute period. Answers like: "my child can kick Johnny Cash's *** in Walk the Line", Captain Jack Sparrow is his Hero and he knows all his moves, and he can fall down the stairs in socks and underwear better than most stunt actors. Anyhow- after another 15-20 minutes of the talking combined with my lack of patience with Davey's lack of patience- saw us out the door! He said, "Wait Mommy, why are we leaving?" My response was, "Davey, they lied. Captain Jack Sparrow is not coming!" He seemed content and I made up the time by going to get an ice cream with my personal favorite little actor!
