What a great dad! A Virginia man is being praised after sharing a photo of his son dressed as Queen Elsa from ‘Frozen’ because his 3-year-old boy wanted to be the beloved Disney character for Halloween this year. Get the details on this heartwarming story.
How adorable! A Virginia dad has become a hero online after sharing a photo of his adorable son dressed up in a Frozen’s Queen Elsa costume as kids all around the world start choosing their outfits for this year’s Halloween celebrations. We love how this dad is giving his child the freedom to be whoever he wants to be!
Paul Henson, 28, took his son, Caiden, 3, shopping in early October — and his lad wanted to be someone he respected and admired. So, he naturally chose Elsa, of course! In the snap, posted on Oct. 4 on Facebook, Caiden sticks his tongue out to the doubters while wearing the blue Frozen-inspired ball gown. The cheeky toddler also adds a touch of color to costume by matching the gown with some awesome green sneakers. He’s a true fashionista!

“Anyone that knows us, knows we generally let Caiden make his own choices, to an extent,” Paul wrote alongside the pic. “Well, he has decided on a Halloween costume. He wants to be Elsa. He also wants me to be Anna. Game on.”
And Paul didn’t end his comments there. “Keep your masculine bullsh*t and slutty kids costumes, Halloween is about children pretending to be their favorite characters,” he continued. “Just so happens, this week his is a princess.”
What a commendable decision from Caiden’s dad. We wonder if Paul will live up to his end of the bargain and dress up as Anna to go trick-or-treating!
So far, Paul’s post has attracted more than 28,000 shares, as friends and family support his decision to let Caiden dress up like a princess Halloween. “Parenting done right!” one Facebook user wrote. Another wrote, “Perfect tiny human.”
In an interview with The Huffington Post, Paul also revealed that he wants to set the right example for Caiden. “As children get older, they distance themselves from their parents,” he said. “Why start that split sooner than they need to? It’s important for children to know that their parents will stand by them no matter what. Ashley and I will do whatever it takes to keep our son happy and not take his innocence and imagination from him.”
