Up staging the Stage Mom



I have an acquaintance who really really (really) likes to talk about how her kids are models. They have been in a few catalogs and such. She's a bit of a stage mom. 

I knew she would be coming to my house, so as a joke I made this little fake "ad" with a photo my sister took of Collin. I framed it and put it in on a shelf in the living room behind a few trinkets. My friend walked around my house, commenting on a few things, then stopped short when she saw this. She stared for a moment, then walked past without a word, her face a little flushed.

I planned on telling her it was a fake, but she got all grumpy and had to leave soon after. 
He He. I'm terrible. 

He is cute though huh? 
(I would be the worst stage mom. That is just way too much effort for me. I mean have you seen Toddlers and Tiaras???)

ha! Long time lurker here and I just had to say I don't know whether to applaud your boldness (I mean, who hasn't wanted to shut up that one annyoying "friend" before?) or put my shocked face on that you actually did it! Ha! So mean, but so awesome.

It is quite funny. Almost more because she was so bothered she left, before you could tell her it was a joke.
