Like most girls in the world, my daughter is Frozen obsessed. And like most girls, she has really taken a shining to Elsa.
Our downtown sponsored a sing-a-long outdoor video screening with the opportunity to meet Elsa this past weekend. Everyone brings their own lawn chairs, and at dusk the video will play on a big inflatable screen.
Even though we are going to Disney this fall, the moronic idea of taking my daughter to this event popped into my head and off we went. But first we scoured town looking for an Elsa dress for her to wear. Of course, there were none to be found, because when we showed up, there were about 500 girls ahead of us in line. I'm sure they were the ones who swooped in and bought all the Elsa dresses before us.
Allison was just excited that she was going to meet her idol, Elsa, and couldn't wait to get there, dress or no dress. After a very long 2 hours in line, complete with wild kids, other frazzled parents, and vendors trying to entice our kids with overpriced cupcakes (Honestly, this was probably as close to Hell as I have ever been) it was finally our turn.
And after our hellish 2 hour wait, know what my kid said? "Pft! That doesn't even look like Elsa!"
Bang, Bang, Bang goes the sound of my forehead against the wall.
Have you ever been disappointed after meeting someone you look up to?
