    Well my 4 year old son is taking his first steps in the modelling business... a friend of mine asked him to model hats or something, they asked me to but I'm gonna try and get out of it. I did it once for this friend before, and that was for a german horse calendar, we where both in the icelandic national uniform, I hated it...
