Clarifications re. Sleeping Beauty

Today in carpool, Annabelle (4 1/2) was telling the story to Devorah (4). Because we were close to school, she said, "I'm just going to tell you the end. So she pricks her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel.........(pause). Is that right?"

Me: "Yup. They're just words we don't use often, but that's how you say it".

Annabelle: "So she's going to fall down dead, but then she just falls asleep for a long time and the prince has to come and kiss her on the lips. Do you get it, Devorah? It's GOT to be on the lips b/c his name is 'Phi-LIP', so it's gotta be on the lips!"

Whenever I demonstrate spinning, the first thing kids ask is "what part did Sleeping Beauty prick her finger on?" Since I only spin wool, not flax, I didn't have a quill, and finally just bought the quill attachment so I could show them the big long deadly-looking spikey thing and say, "This!"
