On the way to see Snow White yesterday, I was reviewing the story with the kids so they'd know what was going on, since it can be hard to get the details from a ballet story.
M: Do you guys remember the story of Snow White?
S: Of course! The evil witch makes her eat the poisoned apple, and she sleeps for 40 years, and only the kiss of her true love can wake her up. Or is that Sleeping Beauty? Why did the witch poison the apple?
N: Snow White is the one with the dwarves.
S: What are dwarves?
N: Little freaks, like leprechauns.
M: How many dwarves are there?
M: 7. How many can you name?
S: Grumpy, Sneezy, Sleepy...that's all.
M: Doc, Bashful, Happy...and somebody else. Every time I try to name them, I can only come up with 6. I don't forget the same one every time, but I never get them all. Why is that?
N: You need to brush up on your knowledge of little freaks.
