We took the kids to watch The Smurfs at the cinema last Friday, and boy, were they excited! Hannah sat through the entire movie without getting restless or sleepy, and both kids happily sang the very distinct Smurfs tune together with the Smurfs in the show.
After the show, I explained to Ethan how the individual Smurfs got their respective names.
Me: Ethan, do you know that the Smurfs are all named after their individual character? For example, Brainy Smurf is brainy, Clumsy Smurf is clumsy and Narrator Smurf loves to narrate a story.
Ethan: Oh, okay…and what about the girl Smurf: “Smur-fet-tee”? (He was reading and pronouncing Smurfette the way it was spelt)
Me: The girl Smurf’s name is pronounced as Smurf-fet, Ethan.
Ethan: SMURF-fet. (pauses) So that means she is FAT!
