The Boy: So why, when Briar Rose fell asleep, did everyone else fall asleep? The fairy didn't mention that in the enchantment. She just said Briar Rose would sleep for 100 years.

Me: Well, I guess that was just part of the enchantment that we didn't hear about. The whole castle fell asleep together so that they would all still be the same age when the spell ended.

The Boy: Castles do not fall asleep. You should have said "court" instead.


Oh boy. Talking back already. That's what those snobby German preschools do to your kids ;)

Do I smell an up-and-coming lawyer in our presence?

Yikes! A literalist already?? The makings of a lawyer indeed...

I think my eldest should not meet your boy. He is the same way, with the added bonus of it being in a very loud voice.
