"The best thing is to look natural, but it takes makeup to look natural."

Mrs M has been working like crazy over the last few weeks and has also been concentrating on getting her portfolio together for further job opportunities. Mrs M if i haven't mentioned in previous posts is a make up artist and a very talented one at that. I have been lucky enough to help out with her work and have managed to secure myself a spot in her portfolio.

For any of my friends that read the blog that knew me when i was younger, they will remember that i was a bit of a crazy club kid and wore a fair bit of crazy make up so modelling for Mrs M was nothing out of the ordinary and was really great fun.

It's lovely to know that Mrs M appreciates my artistic side and loves to hear my idea's. Being the comic book/super hero nerd that i am i thought it would be interesting to get Spider-man in on the action plus its very me so fit into the photo's perfectly i thought. i would have loved to see all of our super hero masks used in a run of pictures but that may be going a bit far. 

Opeie wouldn't come anywhere near me when i had the make up on which was quite funny. He didn't like it at all.

Turns out that Seth wants to follow in Mommy's footsteps and decided to use me as a canvas himself. I think you will agree that Mrs M should be getting very nervous of the stiff competition in our house. He is slowly becoming a make up genius.

My name is Cori Klosterman, I am a student at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon studying sociology. I found your blog and really liked it! I was wondering if you would be willing to let me interview you about your experiences of being a stay at home father. The study is for my senior thesis and it focuses on stay on home dads and the changing role of fatherhood in Americans today. The interviews would be over the phone and would take approximately 30 minutes.

My email is which is the best way to contact me.

Thank you!
