When you see someone painting children's faces it's usually a female, often dressed as a fairy. I therefore find it ironic that as the only male at work I am the one applying the face paint & also the only one prepared to get painted up myself.
I love getting in & doing everything with the children. I am also not ashamed to go around in public displaying what I've been up to. My view is if you're willing to let children see you that way then it should be fine for adults to see you that way too. I love what I do & am proud to be doing it, so I tend to celebrate it whenever I get the chance. I may be the odd one out, but most people who know me will attest to that anyway.
