I sent Lexi's photo to a talent agency today. And now I'm nervous. Because I don't handle rejection well. Even when I'm not receiving the rejection firsthand. This would be like second hand rejection. They wouldn't be rejecting me...but my daughter. And in my eyes, she's perfection. So to have someone reject her...well, I'd feel rejected as well. Crazy isn't it? I mean, I just dropped the envelope in the mail. The agency clearly says, "Please allow 4 -6 weeks for a response". If they don't like her, she won't care. She's one.
Let me be clear in that I have NO fantasies about her "making it big" and becoming the next big child star. Ha! Far from it. I'd just like to open an ad and be able to point to a picture and say, that's MY little girl. Even if the ad is for a local mom & pop store. I think it would make for an amazing memory. Plus, anything that helps build her college fund is always welcome!
So now I sit and wait. 4 -6 weeks. That's not so bad.
