When Kurt is five, his favorite movie is Sleeping Beauty.
Burt likes to pretend it’s because there’s a dragon that destroys stuff because he’s still clinging even if his wife raises a knowing eyebrow every time Kurt becomes captivated by the story unfolding on his television.
They both know why. From the way Kurt blushes the moment Prince Phillip shows up on screen to the giddy way his feet kick when the prince wakes Aurora from her sleeping curse. Kurt loves Sleeping Beauty because Kurt loves Prince Phillip.
For Christmas that year, Burt bites the bullet and buys Kurt a Prince Phillip doll and nothing wakes him up faster on Christmas morning than an excited five year old screaming in his ear, clutching the doll like the most treasured possession that it is.
