Hipster Elsa

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.”
