I helped My Oldest, age 13, design her Hipster Elsa costume.
She’s got a blonde wig, stocking cap, over-sized cardigan sweater and an ironic t-shirt. She’s looking for a disposable cup from an obscure coffee shop, and practicing ironic lines if she gets any compliments.
I suggested “I was cold before it was cool” and “Being cool never bothered me anyway.”
Little Miss Thing, age 5: “Daddy, do you want my apple?”
Me: “Why does this apple have a wooden stick stuck into it?”
Girl: “It used to be a caramel apple. I only like the caramel.”
Me: “Uh… I’ll pass.”
A little perspective…
Did you know you could fit all the planets in our solar system side-by-side in the space between the Earth and the Moon?
It’s a BIG, BIG universe, my friends.
Try to not swear the small stuff. And remember… it’s all small stuff.
